    As I recall, most of the lenses for the Retina S rangefinder and the Retina S, III and IV SLRs should fit the Retina Reflex Instamatic. But I say "should" because I misplaced the Instamatic, so I can't verify this for sure.

    What models exactly? As with Lars, The Retina I have, (Retina II) the lens is fixed.

    But I suppose if you had a hacksaw...
    My weapons consist of 11 cameras. And counting... Be afraid.

    As Mike has said, the lenses from the Retina II SLR and after fit the Retina S and the Retina Instamatic. The older Retina I, II, IIc, IIC, IIIc, IIIC, as well as the first Retina SLR use a changeable front element instead of a changeable lens. These are interchangeable within that sub-set of cameras, but they cannot be used on the later SLR's - and vise versa. Since the entire lens changes on the later SLR cameras (and the Retina S) the issue of Schneider or Rodenstock lenses is immaterial on these cameras.

    kodak retina lenses fit kodak instamatic reflex

    Thanks all for your answers.I was looking for a larger base of lenses to fit my two Kodak Instamatic reflex cameras that take 126 film cartridges and these answers solve that problem.

    Thanks again,

    Doug
