    Three of my favorites (though I don't have a Rolleicord at the moment).

    Sticky shutters?

    Yeah, oddly I do not pay much attention to cameras until I want to buy one ... I recently found out that the Olympus and Canon are pretty good at what they do.

    Olympus had broken self timer lever.
    Canon, possibly sticky shutter
    Rolleicord ... just all around mechanically busted.

    I'll trade you my one Rolleicord for all your stuff ?

    Super nice trio! Had the loan of a rolleiflex 3.5 F but only had the chance to shoot a couple of rolls before it went back home. Have a basket case QL17, will be watching your blog on that one.

    Ok, it appears that I just bought an old Leitz Summicron M-mount 5cm f/2 collapsible lens with ugly elements ... hmm, I am tempted to keep it (if I can clean it up) and use it with my NEX-6, but that means I would need to buy an adapter ... and I don't think I would really use it ... hmmmmm :confused:

    Original would have been nice!

    G III, serial# C59360. Rough shape, front element beat up. Got it real cheap mostly to try and fix but it's pretty far gone.

    What's the problem with it ? Mine is mostly working so I may not try to take it completely apart ... but I could take a peak at something if you point it out.

    Main problem is the film transfer / shutter mechanism. The advance lever winds intermittently and the shutter doesn't trip at all. I removed top and bottom plates looking for the obvious like bent levers and broken or unhooked springs then put it away for a time I can spend longer with further disassembly. Someone had attempted to take the lens assembly apart at one time judging by the way the rings are beat up. It would be no big deal if I didn't get it going, it's just that I have heard lots about this camera and wanted to find out for myself what the fuss was about.
