About a few years ago I got a very special Rolleiflex 2.8C with the lens that I never saw before, it turns out that it was an very rare pre-series Planar 80/2.8 with a very strange number.....
As you may known all those lenses from 50S have a lot of problems nowadays like: coating deterioration, separation, old balsam bound degradation etc. So that lens wasn´t an exception.Here you can see the front bound doublet before I got my hand on it.
So I decided to spend more time and money to restore one of the rarest lens in Rolleilfex TLR line.
See the final result!
The story would´t be complete without images made with that beatiful lens and camera!
