    Hi Guys-
    I have a Rolleiflex Automat 6x6 - Model K4B and for some strange reason, the focusing screen is very scratched. Does anyone happen to have one that they would like to sell?

    Hey Patrick - I had the samething on mine, turned out that there was a second screen on top of it. See if you have the added focusing screen that Rollei sold back in the day.

    Get a new one from Rick Oleson. His screens are pretty good and don't cost an arm and a leg.

    I cut a new screen from an RB67 screen for my Rollie, worked like a charm and is super easy/cheap, someone's got a guide if you google it.
