I remember that - but didn't Schneider also claim that the Xenotar had a
flatter field than earlier lenses?

(BTW - I should add, in case anyone is wondering, that I am not suggesting
that the Planar is better than the Xenotar (or vice versa).  I am just
curious about what you might call the "signature" or "character" of the
two lenses.)
