Re: [Rollei] Rolleikin education, Tele Rolleiflex

Hello Peter:
             The Rolleikin 2 have several variations.
As Todd explained, there are different counter knob
models according they have or they have not components
to avoid it can be pulled out when the camera back is
closed (it demands an adequate camera), also there are
variations for the focusing screen masks, early
Rolleikins 2 for cameras without changeable focusing
hood have a black focusing mask that you place on the
focusing screen where it is retained by two little
springs,the Rolleikins 2 for cameras with changeable
focusing hood and screen have an orange focusing
screen mask that you place different, the Rolleikin
kit for 3.5 lenses has a lens hood mask for these
lenses and there is other for 2.8 lenses. The
Rolleikin C (2 C) is the original kit for the 2.8C
without counter knob because that camera has it
incorporated from factory, afterwards it became useful
for the 2.8D, 2.8E and Tele first model because these
cameras also have the 35mm counter knob from factory,
the Rolleikin C was the Rolleikin 2.8 afterwards. The
original "Rolleikin 2" kit had the 35mmm counter knob
included, when the Rolleikin 2  2.8 appeared replacing
the C kit, the original "Rolleikin 2" became
"Rolleikin 3.5". When the cameras with changeable
focusing appeared, the name "Rolleikin 2" was used for
the kit dedicated to F, E2, E3,T, Wide and Tele second
model. All these kits have differences even for
identical components according the box, there are
metal, plastic and leather boxes for the kits.
The Tele Rolleiflex has a dedicated Sports finder
Rolleikin mask designed for this specific Sports
finder, the framing rectangle mask size is different
with regard to the "normal" size, I think it has
16x22mm, not 24x36mm.
The Tele Rolleiflex had a similar evolution to the F
cameras for the 220 film counter and the glass for the
film pressure plate.-

All the best
