    Rolleinar #1 Bay 1 for 3.5 Tessar

    I just received the Rolleinar 1 set which fits my Rolleiflex Automat MX with a 3.5 Opton Tessar. I noticed that there are three lenses; the prism with the red dot, and 2 identical Rolleinar #1 close-up lenses. Is this correct?

    yep, a close up goes on each lens and then the prism with the dot towards the top on the viewing lens to correct for parallax. later versions integrated the viewing pieces into one item.

    Great, thanks. I also noticed that the lenses were uncoated. I wonder why. Are close-up filters usually like this?

    Is everything marked "Rolleinar" or rather "Rolleiparkeil" or "Rolleipar"?

    The prism is marked Rolleiparkei 1-28.5 and the other two Rolleinar 1 - 28.5

    I'm getting a bit rusty on Rollei TLR but they are probably prewar, hence the lack of integration of the prism with the close-up lens for the viewing pair.

    Yashica compatibility?

    I have a Yashica A, passed on from my wifes grandfather. I don't view it as much of a great picture taking camera, so I keep it on a shelf as a display piece to explain film cameras to my kids friends when they come over. My kids are 4 and 7, and a lot of their peers have never seen anything but a digithing.

    The Yashica is in mint shape, but with a sorry lens and shutter from the start the the manufacturer.

    There is however, as a part of this set, a +1 Yashica close up pair, with the prism integrated in the viewing lens. 32mm diameter, if I recall correctly, and they slip over the lens, rather than screwing on. Are these compatible with Rollei gear?

    No. Other Yashicas use Bayonet I, though.
