    This rather rare Rolleiflex was the first to include a flash sync and use a forged crank handle instead of a cut sheet metal crank. It was a massive leap in quality from the Automat I. It also featured a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 75mm f3.5 in place of the old Zeiss Tessar. This is another restoration project. The before photo shows how the camera's leather had degraded beyond help and it suffered from a severe lean. The mirror was also resembling Swiss cheese, so I replaced that, removed some dents, cleaned it out thoroughly, cleaned and relubricated the shutter, and put new vinyl on it from cameraleather.com.
