Tony, thanks a lot for the informations. Mine uses a Xenar 75mm F3.5 that I
*love*. I think it has 4 elements in 3 groups (?) (like a Tessar, but

Can I change the speeds by any modification in the mechanics, or should I
sell it and buy another Rollei TLR? I am afraid because if the meter deads
(and it's a selenium cell), I will have a small range of exposure (1/30 and
7 apertures).

In flash mode you said that the speed is 1/30. I think it's so slow. Can I
change this too?
