Re: [Rollei] Re: Tele Rollei was Rolleikin with 3.5 Tessar


Yes, that is a late one. 1966 - 175, 1618 Cameras. The Rolleikin 
counter was standard fitted on the early ones and was an option on 
later cameras.

I have an early one with plane glass and three way back. Sometime 
during its life it lost the Rolleikin counter and has a standard knob
