    Rollei SL66e (integral meter)/ 80mm lens

    It's a gorgeous camera, but too much for me. I bought this SL66e thinking it would become my "Hasselblad with a meter", with bonus macro and tilt movement capability, but there's just too much to it--I'll stay with my 501 C/M. Google SL66 for specs on all the 66's, and BTW: according to the site, only 1500 of these "e" models were made between 1982 and 1986. Every feature functions well. Glass is fine (Rollei 80mm HFT, which I believe is Zeiss). Cosmetics are excellent. The meter matched my digital Sekonic, and resulting images went head to head with my Hasselblad. Lens, cap, 120/220 combination back, strap, fresh battery, and finder are included, as is a disk with manuals, brochures, lenses, accessories, etc. These cameras are listed for crazy prices on eBay. I am selling for $1400.00US, PayPal, shipped USA for $20.00.

    This is the ideal camera for people who want to do close-ups in medium format!

    I'll make this shorter: The Ideal Camera!

    I have one - will never go back to Hasselblad!

    It is also fantastic IF you want to adapt old brass lenses on a new body - due to the bellows!

    see image..

    Worth every penny!

    Can't you see how the lens is mounted? Duck Tape!!! (duct tape). I think I've seen universal mounts on the bay in the past for the sl66, kinda like a lensboard idea. One note, I don't think you can use the meter with anything but the rollei lenses that have the e-ring, like the one pictured in the ad. They don't work in stop down mode. There's a lever near the lens mount that the lens e-ring engages and it's a function of the aperture ring moving. If that lever doesn't move a little when the lens is mounted, the meter does not turn on. If anyone knows how to use the camera in stop down mode, please let me know, since I could be wrong here. bob.
