Error in Rollei Report4

In the book at page 46-925 is described the Distagon 2.8/35 and in the description is written 5 lenses in 5 group, but in the drawing of the lens there are 6 lenses, like the Contax version.
Thank to the fuwen site I have found the correct drawing of the Distagon in the Rollei version ... &Itemid=88 in the picture linked the lenses are 5 like described by Mr. Prochnow and like described in various instruction manual of the SL camera.

I have the Germany version of the 35/2.8, a very nice little lens and produces very sharp pictures. I prefer this small lens over the 35/1.4 for its size and better distorsion correction.

I have also tried the Contax C/Y version of the 35/2.8, find it equally good as the Rollei HFT version.

mmmh, starting at f5,6 the 1,4/35 Distagon beats the 2,8/35 for sure.
With f1,4-4 there is a nasty ghost image of clearly defined lights, so one may argue which lens is better in that range.
