The camera is basically operating well, the focus is smooth, wind in lever, works well, aperture moves freely, waist level viewfinder pops up without sticking, self timer works, shutter fires on all speeds, even 1 second sounds good. I have owned this camera for over 10 years, it may be due a service fo optimum performance.
The light meter is not working, this has never worried me as I would always use an external meter or just use the sunny 16 rule etc. There is some balsamic separation to the edge of the taking lens and some fungus visible in both lenses. This has never been an issue for me, I've never noticed it affecting any image quality. The fungus may be removable with internal cleaning, but I have never looked into this. Overall a great useable Rolleiflex with the best lens in my opinion; the Zeiss Planar 80mm f/2.8.
