    Thanks, Brian, in this case, I meant that the best available lens for the Rolleicord was the Xenar.

    I was thinking of all of the various models with the first ones having a Carl Zeiss Jena Triotar and the final ones with an excellent coated Xenar.

    Poor phrasing on my part.

    Edit: Unless you meant "top" as in "the most advanced lens of the entire Rolleicord line."

    I agree! It is easy to get caught up in a buying frenzy but one often doesn't really know what accessories he really needs and will use until after using a camera (or anything else) for a little while.

    The prudent person will wait to buy accessories so that he doesn't waste money on things he will never use.

    ... unless the person in question is a collector as well as a user. Many collectors are driven by a compulsion "to have all possible parts and accessories". To each his own.

    My Rolleicord has a Xenar lens and my Rolleiflex has a Tessar. I think the Xenar has the edge but there isn't really much in it. And as I usually use them around f8 rather than wide open I doubt that there is any discernible difference.

    Hello all.

    Oh, thanks for so many tips.

    I understand, better to wait with some of the extras, but a hood and filters.

    The Vb in the shop looks good, to me, it also feels good, but a bit price.....900 euro is a bit more than I had in mind.
    Or, is that the range?

    900 Euro is way too much for Vb.

    I have paid 88 Euro for Va.

    900 Euro should get you a Rolleiflex 2.8 C/D/E in good working order!

    88 for Va ;-) but I was prepared to give 150 on that day.
