    I also have a Rolecord III that I bought couple of years ago. First thing I did was changing the GG (original one pretty dimm). There is a fellow who sells better GG at reasonable price but I don't recall his whereabouts right now. John, if you need when I get home I can PM you the contact details of this guy.
    I'm very happy with my Rolleicord, took some nice pictures with it. Mine has the Xenar lens.

    new-to-me rolleicord v !!!

    just got a new-to-me rolleicord v!!!

    my good fortune brought me one in very nice condition - except sticky slow shutter speeds.

    my first rollei TLR!!! (have a rollei 6002, i looooove in spite of its weight)

    i had casually been reading threads here and at rff and at nelsonfoto about rolleicords. seemed the rolleicord v in particular has a quite a following...and then i found one priced about in the middle of what "they should go for" ...and the rest is...here!!!

    i haven't been this jazzed about a camera in awhile.

    the aperture and shutter speed controls move nicely without being too stiff or too loose...the shutter sets and fires as it should (except for those #@*!!#^!! slow shutter speeds).

    the the viewing and taking lens are in good shape...the focus knob is smooth and the film advance seems smooth enough...

    the back opens and closes without a hitch (no pun intended ) ...the viewing hood and magnifier work smoothly...

    came with a rollei lens cap and a short padded strap. now to get a bay 1 hood and an orange filter for - my favorite b&w filter.

    it soooooo small and light!!!

    yikes, yowee and zowee!!

    breathe, relax and enjoy.

    I have a nice looking Rolleicord VB that was sent off to Harry Fleenor for a CLA and a bright Maxwell split screen. It's my baby.

    I have a nice Vb and all works well. I've had V, MX, MX-EVS, 2.8E/Planar. They are all great. I like the Vb as much as any of the others. Small and light with great results.

    And I have just done it. There are a couple of spacer pieces which go between the front plate and the focusing mechanism mount with the four screw holes. They look a little bit like long thin spanners. I think some of the screws were loose and one of these was occasionally catching on something.

    Anyway, it seems to work now but I must have put the front back on only to take it off about seventeen times until I got the double exposure prevention/film wind stop mechanisms correctly linked up!

    In the mid 80's my father and I bought a secondhand Vb for £60, in beautiful shape and used it for years. It had a Xenar lens which gave unbelievable results. I still have large B/W prints I made at the time, the sharpness amazes me now, even after years of using a Rolleiflex 3.5f Planar. The 'cord is a lovely camera, real quality in a small package!

    Mine has the Xenar lens too and I agree, it is a very good sharp lens.

    I have stated before that if I could only keep one of my cameras, it would be the Rolleicord.
