    I have a very mint condition Rolleiflex 2.8f that is for sale. I have the leather case for it and the origional cardboard box that it came in. Everything is in excellent like new condition. I have shot 2 rolls of film through it and it functions prefectly.

    This camera has the Carl Zeiss lense. Both lenses have no scratches visiable through a 5x loop. There is no cosmetic damage at all on this camera, however the box shows a little age.

    I am just trying to figure out what it is worth and possibly sell it to a collector. Also I was thinking about sending it to B&H photo for a trade on something a little more practicle.

    Just wondering what you guys have to say about this. I will post pictures if anyone is intrested. Please PM me if you wish to have further details about this camera.

    I'll give you 5 bucks for it just to get the bidding going. The Rollei 2.8 is a great camera, and these days is a collectors item. Best way to get a value on it is go to Ebay and they do come up for sale now and then. Philip. Yea post some shots, we all like to look at pictures.

    Nick, your Rollei is worth some bucks, man! I'll double the previous offer...:lol: Nah, just kidding!

    I assume that your Carl Zeiss lens is the Planar 2.8 Correct?

    If so, it's worth much more selling it rather than trading for it. Whichever dealer you might consider trading with will give you much less than the camera's worth. My advice... Be patient and stick to your price that you want. Philip has the right idea, research Ebay for previous sales to see how much they go for.

    PM me if you need more info on this.

    Oh, BTW... what do you mean by "something a little more practical"? A 35mm SLR, a DSLR? Another Medium Format camera? Large Format?

    As far as something a little more practicle, I was refering to a DSLR. I will be traveling a lot more soon and would like something a little eaiser to use. I was thinking of getting a Cannon Digital Rebel XT.

    And because I know everyone wants to know....here are the serial numbers :)

    taking Lense: 367**** 1:2.8 f=80mm Carl Zeiss Planar
    viewing lense: 88**** 1:2.8/80 Heldosmat
    camera body: 242****

    I would be delighted to get any information you may have reguarding this camera. I think that it is valued somewhere in the $1000 range. I could be compleatly wrong about this though. Thanks for looking,

    Hey SB, no need to apologize. Pics are good enough to see what a beautiful camera your Rollei is. Here is a fellow on Ebay selling a similar camera (a white faced Rollei 2.8F with Planar):

    Rollei

    I would'n sell it in your condition for less than $1,000! I wish I could determine you to work with it and not give in to the DSLRs, they're stunning cameras! ;)

    woooooow!!! why, why are you parting from such a beautiful camera?? :D
    Can you imagine that, for the price of a low end dslr, you can get a more-than-wonderful-and-so-great-a-camera-that-I want-it-right-now camera?? Even the box is lovely!
    Yeah, I agree with you Mitica. Not less than 1000$. Or even 1000€!! . Otherwise I can give you my adress and you send it there. What would be shipping price??
