Re: [Rollei] Light Meters and Differences Between E & F Bodies


The F without the lightmeter or any of its ancillary features is probably
an E3.  I have seen Fs without the meter cell, or the meter knob, but
still having the film speed and filter factor dial.  They were just cameras
in which the meter died and a blanking plate and knob center were installed.
Those are still Fs, though incomplete.
