    What did I buy???

    I bought this at a local camera swap meet here in Vancouver. Obviously, it's a Rolleiflex, but I can't figure out which model it is, and when it was made. The serial# is not listed in any of the sites I have been to. I'd like to know more about what I bought. I would also like to know if there is an on-line manual for it somewhere. Many thanks in advance!

    Arg...I've been searching the web using the serial# on the bottom lens, then I noticed the # on the upper lens....THEN I noticed the # on the top plate of the camera. The # is 1777201, which acording to different websites is either a 3.5C or a 3.5E....*sigh* which one is it?

    Will S, I have no idea if it's a T or not.

    It`s not a T.
    It`s a 3.5E, a really nice one, wich should give you all the Rolleiflex magic you could ever dream of... What did you pay for it?

    The "Collectors' Guide to Rollei Cameras" by Arthur Evans also has it as a 3.5E (assuming that you put one "7" too many in the s/n).

    3.5C is what some of the German reference books call the 3.5E. My most used Rolleiflex is its 2.8E brother.
    If it says Zeiss or Rollei, the answer is YES!

    I got it for $375CDN. It seems to be in perfect working condition except for the self-timer - it won't trip the shutter.
