    Imagonal is a well known Rodenstock objective. They were found of -----gonal names. There is a Heligonal too, which is a 2 + 4. They went over to the Eurynar series which are usually (1+1) + (1+1) - which are much cheaper to produce.

    In some versions of the Roman alphabet used in Germany, the upper case letter we write as I is written as J. Jmagonal = Imagonal

    J and I in this case is the same letter.
    Another good example of this, is the old Agfa Isolette folder.
    See http://static.photo.net/attachments/...Q-14507784.jpg
    for a image with J instead of I in the name.

    I think that J which "crops" up all the time on illread Germany trademarks (JHAGEE , JCA for Ihagee and ICA) is basically because the old copperplate "I" is/was engraved as as J.
    Similar to the old "fs" meaning ss. Ross pre-1859 is Rofs - but, of course read as Ross.
    German still has the special writing (not on my keyboard!) for "ss".

    I'm allways surprised as how many special caracters are hidden under "insert symbol" in MS Word. Here is "ss": ß
