Ah, how could I have forgotten the IIa, the only Retina folder with the
frame advance lever on top, where God intended it to be. I never understood
the fondness for the later, bulkier incarnations of the Retina --
particularly with those clunky and slow add-on lenses, which completely
negate the advantages of having a folder. But the IIa with the Xenon lens is
a lovely little package.
