Here we have a Rolleiflex 2.8F "White Face" 12/24 TLR serial #2477482 with Carl Zeiss Planar taking lens #5389026. Pristine condition. If I were to be 'picky' and I am - there are only a couple, faint hairline marks where a tripod would attach to the bottom mounting disk.

Overall, probably the most mint Rolleiflex 2.8F 12/24 WhiteFace that I've had in 30 years, (and I've probably had or sold close to 50) It is in spectacular condition. I can't imagine anyone who holds it in their hands disagreeing or being in any way disappointed. Japanese collectors are selling this sort of camera for $3700+ and I haven't even seen one this nice.

The Zeiss Planar lenses are free of marks, haze or fungus. The camera works well. This is a camera that was purchased new by the original owner and never used after the first week he had it - and it shows. It has not been serviced to my knowledge. With that said, the advance is smooth and the shutter is excellent. At one second it seems a little slow, which should come as no surprise under the circumstances, but it is consistent. Focus is smooth, the self-timer works, the mirror is spotless and the meter works.

It comes with a new original Rollei strap, incident meter diffuser and original plastic Rollei caps.

Just look at the photos! I'm actually going to a photo show in a few weeks, and guarantee that both this and my mint Voigtlander Perkeo E will be sold.

Asking: $3100.00 (net to me) shipped within the USA
