    Rollei pollei ID

    Could anyone give me a heads up on this Rolleiflex? Seller didn't give a lot of info or pics on this one, maybe I should have let it go.

    It's a MX Rolleiflex (K4A) on the photo, and description is not correct.
    Bayonet-mount is both on taking and viewing lenses.
    Shutter is a Synchro Compur (without T).
    There is usually a sportsfinder.
    MX Rollei was made between 1951 and 1954.

    But I don't know if the seller has given the right infos or the right pic...

    I don't think he did either. I checked all the Rollei sites before I made the offer.
    This is what I think it is..

    I agree with the above, the bayonet mount is Rollei Bayonet 1, and would be 1951/54. certainly not 1937, and is one of the Rolleiflex Automat range, I have one and it has a Tessar lens and is a very usable camera Richard

    My concern is what is going on with the lenses they look yellow and if you look close at the taking lens, something is in the middle of it. the lenses also look bigger than the ones I've seen and there is not that much of a lip around them. If you look close at the lenses there doesn't appear to be bayonet mounts on the lens ring either. I guess that I will just have to wait and get it in my hot little hands before I can find out for shure. Do you think I made a good choice?

    It's the lens cap!

    Ask the seller for more pictures, with the lens cap off and the viewing hood erected.

    It's to late now for more pics and info, the camera is enroute as we post. I hope I didn't make mistake, should have just let it go when he didn't respond to my queries. I think I was caught up in CAD.

    It's either "Computer Aided Drafting" or "Camera Addition Diseas", much the same as GAS.
