    Here you can see the difference betwen the pre-war and post-war Xenon lenses. The post-war example was used on the IIc and IIIc and looked almost the same in the 2,8 and 2,0 versions.

    And you can see that the five element 2,8 Xenar was called "Xenar", but "Xenon" on the Retinas. Schneider called this version "Super-Xenar" in their internal publications, and sometimes "S-Xenar". Not all 2,8 Xenars were five element. The post-war 2,8 Xenar on the Retina was a four element, as was the "S-Xenar" on the Rollei 35. Confusing, huh? :rolleyes:

    Plugging "Kodak Retina Ib" into Google gives 97,000 hits with the fifth one down being a manual in PDF format.
