This is going to be hard waiting for my T to come back. Turn around is 9 weeks. Still have my Mamiya.
Awww, you poor baby. Want me to go visit for you... Fleenor is just down the road.
Mine took 10 weeks, but that was last March. After waiting a while and not doing it because of the wait I finally did it. So glad I did.

This was on the last roll I shot this weekend. Then it froze up.. wouldn't advance and shutter wouldn't fire.
I need to send mine "one of these days".
But it is too expensive. If the Rollei was gone for 10 weeks, I would be photographing with the 11x14 way too much! (the 8x10 would not provide enough comfort...)
At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.
Just got my SL66 back from Harry (thanks Harry) and it's now working great again. I also need to have my 2.8F looked at so I will send to Harry in a few weeks as soon as our wonderful weather peeders out --------- Harry's the Man!
When I get ready to sell mine I will first send it to Harry so he can put his sticker inside that will increase the sales price significantly.
...just kidding, I already have the sticker and I'm never selling my 2.8F
Best camera ever! Rollei's rock!
Harry Fleener got my T and examined it. Here is what he found out:
Hello Todd Berenger,
Received: Rolleiflex T with aluminum lens cap, Rolleiflex case.
Defects on receipt: some paint worn on hood & nameplate edges, some fine scratches front surface taking lens.
shutter overhaul $134.00, repair front controls (stiff) $39.00, transport checked OK- the squeek is just the rollers-I'll lubricate them, UPS shipping $27.00, total is $200.00.
I should mention that he pointed out those scratches.. They dont seem to effect the image quality at all. High scanning or darkroom printing.
That is a lot more reasonable of a price than some people (who never report the price) lead us to believe. Thanks for sharing all of the information!
