The camera is rare, but not incredibly so. For some reason the Rolleiwide
has the reputation as being very, very rare. They come up with frequency on
e-bay and are not as rare as a 2.8 E3 or a 2.8B. In fact finding an Original
Rollei of 1928 in mintish condition is very rare as is finding immediate
postwar Rollei TLRs in mint condition (1946/47). I can get a nice Rolleiwide
in a matter of a day if I am willing to pay for it. I will have a much
harder time tracking down the previously mentioned Rollei cameras in
The lens is great. And yes I have one.
I just saw this on EBay and wondered how many of you have seen one of these
wide angle Rolleiflexes. How rare are they, and how good is the 55mm
