Rolleiflex SL35 camera and Carl Zeiss Planar 50mm lens

Description

Further price drop for quick sale.

Optics are completely clear of fungus and aperture works smoothly with clearly defined stops. The focus ring is not working smoothy between 2.5metes to infinity however I am certain that a service to lubricate it should resolve this issue. This was not an issue after i had it serviced initially but showed up later after being in storage and out of use.

NOTE: It does not occur all the time while focusing i.e. when the camera is on its back or lens facing down.

Body itself is immaculately clean and comes with leather strap and leather body cover.

This Carl Zeiss Planar 1,4/50 HFT lens is manufactured in Germany and the body from Rollie's Singapore based factory. Since finding the issue with the lens I've decided to sell it as a going concern and drop the price accordingly. Anyone interested is welcome to inspect it.

is it sold? what are the issues with the lens?

@teechot: it is not moving smoothly when held horizontally. When the lens points down to the ground - vertically - the issue is gone. If you are interested I can meet you in person and show you what I mean.

€120 OFFERED
Hi there.

I know this is probably a much lower offer than you would like but, based on the stiff focusing ring and that’s it’s gonna cost me at least €60 to have that looked at.

@WheresMyCamera?: 150 is the lowest I will go. Thanks for your interest.

Thanks Eric but I can’t go any higher given the work that needs to be done. Camera looks in great shape, it’s a shame about the stiff focusing ring. Good luck with the sale.

@WheresMyCamera?: For a quick sale this weekend I will drop the price to 135. My last offer.

Totally appreciate the flexibility there Eric but I’m an occasional 35mm shooter, more MF than anything, so I’ll stand buy my previous offer. Thanks anyway and best of luck with the sale.
