Re: [Rollei] SL35 lenses



Rollei Sl35E was designed for full compatability with two pins Zeiss lenses.
The THREE pin lenses were manufactured for Rollei SL 2000F, 3003/3001. That
type of lens still has two pins and a groove for the third pin that actually
exists on the camera body in order to transfer the initial aperture of the
lens to the camera electronics.
