    As the title says I'm looking for a Rolleiflex Rolleinar 1 in Bayonet 3 - need the complete set (viewing and taking lenses).
    Thanks in advance

    Would alternate brands be suitable?

    I have one for sale... now that I sold my Rolleiflex, I really don't need it anymore. It's complete and in perfect shape (even the case in minty). I'm asking 140$+shipping for it (that's the price I paid for it a few months ago, I just want to recoup my losses, no more no less).

    I have an Accura set, it's aluminum (not black) and the glass is clean. I'm not sure on the quality compared to the Rollei piece as I have not used a Rolleinar.

    It's just the number 1, I meant set of upper and lower lenses. Upper has built in prism to minimize parallax.

    I didn't know Accura made a Bay III. Was it hard to find?

    Maxwell, glad to see you found one. I'm sure the Rollei quality will not leave you wanting.

    Moose, I got it with a large lot of other gear, so it was just a nice surprise. I've also got a Bay 3 LHM-branded #3 close up filter that came with one of my Yashicas, which seems less popular than any Accura gear from the era.
