They made 0.7 and 0.35 Rolleinars especially for the Tele Rolleiflex (which, being Bay III can actually also be used with most 2.8 Rolleiflex models, too). These bring focus in and if that is still inadequate standard Bay III Rolleinars may also be stacked onto Eg the 0.35 for really close range imaging. The arch exponent of this technique was undoubtedly Sanders McNew, who has made many portraits this way.
