PRE-ORDER for the Rolleiflex 2.8F type 1 with 5-elements Schneider Kreuznach Xenotar 80/2.8 lens, very rare "pre-white face" Xenotar 80 lens generation with semi-soft touch and classical colour rendition (like the last generation of the 2.8E), amazing for portraits.

Appr. finishing time middle January

For collectors: this is the late first version of the 2.8F (type 1) (PR 168/1B), very hard (impossible) to find in this condition nowadays.

The flat glass insert is the best way to keep your film absolutely flat over the entire surface (like a sensor) and you also get a constant film position for every single shot without any tolerances in the film channel! The same technology was also possible for 220 type film on Vacuum Film Insert for Contax 645 but with this 2.8F it´s also possible for 120 film type.
It´s amazing technology if you use to scan your film and able to keep the flat glass dust free by using an air blower by every film change, some accuracy is required but you will be rewarded with amazing incomparable quality.

It´s relatively easy to remove the flat glass plate to clean underneath (if needed) or to remove completely to use the camera in the standard modus without the flat glass (for that purpose the pressure plate of the back must be switched to the 6x6 mod).
Another important aspect is that you will able to see where the flat glass ends on the negative (the edge will be visible on top and bottom part of the negative).

It also comes with a mint/new flat glass back door which is extremely rare nowadays, especially in that condition, it could be found on eBay right now for almost 550 USD for the back in that condition only.


The camera will be completely rebuilt and re-adjusted

(The amount of work is greater the the usual overall "CLA", I check out the complete camera and take it fully apart, bring all the internal parts and adjustments back to the factory condition or even improve the factory settings, test all functions, clean, renew, re-lubricate, and readjust the whole camera), therefore all functions work accurately and even smoother than from the factory, the focus is adjusted to the film plane and also film tested on the special stand for excellent focus accuracy.

Mint lens!
