There are European and US nomenclature systems at play here, used by F&H.
Until 1949, both are identical. After that, though, things become a bit
Rolleiflex 3.5 Rolleiflex X
Rolleiflex 3.5A Rolleiflex MX
Rolleiflex 3.5B Rolleiflex MX-EVS
Rolleiflex 3.5C Rolleiflex 3.5E
Rolleiflex 3.5E2 Rolleiflex 3.5E2
Rolleiflex 3.5E3 Rolleiflex 3.5E3
Rolleiflex 3.5F Rolleiflex 3.5F
In other words, there WAS a "3.5E" but only in the US.
