Rollei 35RF+ Sonnar HFT 40mm sets NIB.

(I hope I put this in the appropriate forum. Apologies if I didn't.)

In case anyone is looking for a Rollei 35 RF, this seller has several, apparently NIB and unopened:

I don't know anything about the dealer--I was searching for something else and one of their listings came up and I then looked at "other items for sale" and noticed the Rollei and 40mm Sonnar sets.

the 40 is well known for developing haze, I’d suspect that these, sealed up for 20 years would be pretty hazy.

Had not remembered about the hazing concerns with these.
And, I am a bit startled to realize how old these are--it was only a minute ago when i joined RFf...

Hmm, didn't realize that. It is not obvious from what I saw in my search.
Seems slightly dodgy to do that.

Yeah, these don’t seem that old to me either. Note that these lenses cannot be opened up for cleaning of haze. I got one back from an attempt that was VERY scuffed up.

That's unfortunate. I generally like Sonnar type lenses and the 40mm is not a common focal length.
Guess it's a good thing I am not buying this.
But, this does get me thinking about "favorite" lenses and I might have a different post about that.

Same serial number on the box in each listing.

This particular lens is really lovely, till the haze comes. I've had a bunch over the years.
