    I did IT!

    I successfully transplanted a xenar lens(excellent condition)from a doa rolleicord I got on ........ to my mint rolleicord that had a less than perfect triotar. Just got back from Alaska and the negatives look fabulous!

    Can I have the Triotar

    Is the focus register right ? I had a Rolleicord II with a Triotar it was an interesting lens, but the Xenar will be much better, but I took some excellent transparencies with the Triotar, I think on E4 film

    Let me know where to send it to and I'll be happy to give it to you, it does have a very slight scuff on the rear element.

    I did IT

    I took a piece of ground glass and put it on the image plane then checked the focus with a 7X loupe then made a slight adjustment to the viewing lens. Near as I can tell from my negatives its great and the image quality I find to be more to my liking i.e. its more in line with my rolleiflex 3.5T.
