Rollei 2.8F Planar

The famous Rolleiflex f2.8 Planar from about 1962.

It has an 80mm f2.8 Zeiss Planar lens in a Synchro-Compur shutter speeded 1-1/500th second + B, X and M flash settings, delayed action,viewfinder parallax compensation by a moving mask,'sports action' viewfinder with magnifier,built-in exposure meter with an Incident Light diffuser shown .I bought it for £250 from a camera club member and it had to be serviced as the ground glass was upside down and the shutter not working properly,so I got £50 knocked off to pay for service! I have done many weddings with this.
