E2 Test 04

Testing my ROLLEIFLEX E2 ff2.8 Xenotar after it was repaired. Serial Number 1652155 : 1956-59: It had to have a new 'Pin' in the base catch, focus knob and winder cleaned, sticky shutter done - now it is great - even though the taking lens has some scratches from use as a 'Press Camera with the 'Romford Recorder' newspaper. I took some at full aperture when light allowed and some stopped down. I rated the 06/1997 T-max 100 at 80 ASA and processed in my Home-made FX-4 1+1 for 8 mins @20oc -- 7 mins would have been better as many negs were contrasty.

FULL APERTURE Test 1/500th @f2.8 SHARP enough !
