Re: [Rollei] Why the 6-element lens for 3.5Fs

Could it be that SK came out of WWII more whole?  Zeiss high ups were 
west and most workers east, Zeiss was having troubles getting things 
back up to standards, it does take time build up the skill of new 
workers?  Then again maybe the SK design while close to the Zeiss 
desings was a bit easier to produce?
