Re: [Rollei] Rollei XF 35 - help needed

You have to remove the leatherette on the front left side.

Underneath you find two screws, one for vertical and one for horizontal 

Find an object in infinity and adjust the screws to obtain a matched image 
in the viewfinder.

Make test photos of a newspaper at short distance and high angle with full 
open aperture and check that the lines you focussed are sharp on the negative.

Paste the leatherette again on the body using "Pattex" made by Henkel. That 
is the factory used glue.
