    issue with focusing ring on rollei 35

    Good day all,

    Hope i will find some guidelines here.

    I took a rollei 35SE made in singapor. The camera looks nice and everything is clean.

    Unfortunately, the focusing ring is very hard to turn. It goes at infinity from 3ft.

    Do you know a way to make it more loose ?

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    All the best

    Rom
    All the best,

    There has been a similar discussion here, only that the camera was Agfa Isolette: http://www.apug.org/forums/forum147/...tuck-8-ft.html

    Basically, lighter fluid and heat or disassemble the focus ring and clean out the old grease properly and regrease. Depending on the complexity of your camera (I am unfamiliar with your camera so I can't tell), it might be a better idea to send it out to a professional to clean.
