Re: [Rollei] Rollei wide

the Tele- and Wide- were based on the 2.8E2, so they don't have a coupled meter
but provision for installing the uncoupled meter (like in the "T" too).

Later models had 220film provision (as far as I know uncommon to the 2.8E2 but
available for some 2.8F models).

For 6000Euro .. .you could get a Tele- and a Wide- plus the special Rolleinars 0.3 and
0.7 for the Tele- or you get the Wide- with a shade ;-)

In any case make sure you get the right waist level finder for either one, and try to get
as many accessories in the first place as possible. Think the WIOBL is rare/hard to find?!
Ever seen a Bay IV lens cap for sale (without the camera)??? Or the Bay IV polarizer?
