True enough! My cleanest and best condition Rolleiflex is a 2.8C Xenotar. I personally do not see those plastic bits a big deal but some purists do (then again there are manywho would never own any Rolleiflex older than an F). As to the aperture blades I cannot see any significant difference vs my 2.8E Planar.
