Re: [Rollei] Rollei SL 35 E

Hi Andrei,

The mirror on my SL35E will lock up sometimes and I have to push up on it to get it to release. This usually happens after it has been sitting for somtimes. More common now since my 3003 purchase. It might just need a CLA. 

The battery in mine is a Varta V28PX Silver (6v). Maybe you can cross reference from that. 

The SL35e is a great camera and I think would be worth spending money on .
