    Rolleiflex 3.5C Planar + 3.5E Xenotar

    For sale are couple of Rolleiflex's

    First is a 3.5C in good shape, this comes with the 3.5 Planar lens. The lenses are in good shape, the viewing lens is clean with perhaps some light cleaning marks on the front element. The taking lens does have some light cleaning marks in the coating but these are pretty minimal and I very much doubt you'd notice them in your photographs, certainly not if you use a hood.

    The mechanics are in good shape, focus is smooth and accurate, shutter speeds sound great, aperture moves freely and the waist level finder pops up nicely and has clean optics. The body has some normal light wear from use but the included case seems to have been used so the leather and chrome is in good shape. There is one small piece of leatherette missing just below the taking lens.

    The meter has been checked against a digital SLR and does seem to be functioning correctly. The focusing screen is clean and comes with grid marks. The original users manual is included.

    -$580

    Secondly is a 3.5E Xenotar in user condition. I can't find a serial number on the body so I'm just guessing that this is a 3.5E.

    The body has quite a bit of handling wear from use. Mechanics are in good shape, focus, film advance and aperture are smooth. The shutter speeds sound great. This was previously owned by a small studio which had their cameras regularly serviced. The glass is in good shape, the taking lens is very clean with only trace cleaning marks, the view lens has one small scratch but overall is in great shape.

    This comes with an interchangeable prism which does have some scratches on the bottom glass as well as separation. It's still very useable and viewing is not affected by the imperfections. The focusing screen has some light cleaning marks on the top surface but is useable.

    Good user camera, I'd recommend finding a waist level for it.

    -$350

    I think you're right about that second one (Xenotar) being a 3.5E -- but it's very curious that there's no serial number. Maybe the nameplate is a replacement?
