The Rolleiflex Tele FT

 
Rolleiflex 4.0 FT Rollei’s legendary twin-lens reflex camera with a newly designed Tele Xenar 135 mm f/1:4 HFT lens by Schneider Kreuznach, protective lens cap, carrying strap and size IV filter bayonet.
Compared to the predecessor of this camera , the Tele Rolleiflex of the 1960 the most remarkable feature is the reduced focussing distance, from 2.5 meter in the '60s to only 1.5 meter in the new millenium.
This technical achievement was reached by a complete re-design of the focusing mechanism. The 1.5 meter distance makes it the perfect portarit camera. The leather parts are of brown cowhide with a crocodile grain. The back has chromium plated edges that give the camera a sophisticated elegance. The logo on the front of the camera corresponds exactly to the one that adorned the Rolleiflex cameras of the thirties. The well proven carrying strap eyelets of the earlier models have also been taken over.
