Rolfix II Mk2 with Trinar lens 


If the Rolfix II with its Trinar lens is uncommon, then the rangefinder version must be considered rare. As yet I do not have one, and have only ever seen two for sale on ebay.

One in excellent condition sold several years ago to Jurgen Kreckel (certo6) for 82. This one from Poland, listed Dec 2011, was offered for the exceedingly optimistic Buy-It-Now price of $250/187.

(Not surprisingly it did not sell!) 

Rolfix IIE (rangefinder version) 

Rodenstock s/n 2598349 dates this example to May 1952
