    The Cassar is a three element lens, and should perform best stopped down to 11 or 16.

    Is there a difference in Cassar and Cassar S?

    Not sure. The "S" can be for "Spezial" or "Sonder" and could stand for a special version tweaked to 2,8. Earlier Cassars weren't faster than 2,9.

    Possibly because the original Cassar's were triplets but later Cassar's were Tessar type, perhaps these were the S

    There are some in my gallery taken with a Kodak Retinette 1b and a Kodak Retina reflex III with Schneider 50mm f1.9 lens.

    A Triplet or a Tessar has the same number of air/glass surfaces, the main difference is the front element of a Tessar is a cemented pair.

    It does appear that I was right about the Cassar S being a Tessar type, one manufacturer Regula sold cheaper models with a front cell focussing Rodenstock Trinar or a Cassar, and their better models with a Cassar S or Zeiss Tessar.

    Edixa also sold their SLR's (Edixamat's etc) with a Cassar S.

    I have an Edixa Prismaflex with a 50mm Auto-Cassaron. It was my first 35mm SLR which my father got for me about 30 years ago. I assume this lens is similar.

    Steve, I think the Auto-Cassaron was a further improvement, there was also a Cassarit, they were all f2.8 standard lenses.
