    88 for a Va - wow, lucky you. I paid 190 Euro for a good looking V and then had it serviced for 250 (including some parts which needed to be replaced, mirror and ground glass cleaning etc). In the end it was all worth the money as a TLR is a lot of fun.

    As to GAS, the good thing about the Rollei TLR or should I say about most TLRs: No need to spend money on lenses. And there are not too many accessories you can get - well, some filters come in handy whereas a lens hood in my opinion is not an accessory but a must.

    Cheers

    Moin,

    I was thinking to send it to Braunschweig for CLA. Do you have any other recommendation?
    OM-1n: Do I need to own a Leica?
    Rolleicord Va: Humble.
    Agfa Isolette III: Amazingly simple, yet it produces outstanding negatives.
    Holga 120GFN: EV 11 or EV 12.

    I sent mine to Jürgen Kuschnik in Frankfurt and I think he does a great job. You can contact him here: Click!

    I was very lucky. I got my V for £34 and it worked perfectly.

    Someone had bought it to do a photography class then decided to sell it when it was over.

    Does it actually need a CLA? If it all works, I would just use it.

    I would recommend Jurgen, who spent many years with Rollei, as well. He serviced my Rolleiflex Automat and did a great job.

    Bad news. I got a reply from Juergen that he has stopped repairing cameras. :-(

    That is indeed bad news. He serviced my Rolleicord early December last year.
