Help Identify Agfa Super Solina

So I picked up an Agfa Super Solina from a local camera store today and it seems to be in pretty good condition. It is meterless, but does have a parallex corrected, coupled rangefinder.

However I am not sure which specific lens it has. The lens is marked Color-Apotar 45/2.8 and Google have told me that the 45/3.5 Apotar is a triplet design. I am not sure one can actually make a 2.8 triplet, though.

Any ideas on the lens and its performance?

It's a triplet. The addition of rare earth element glass allowed for f2.8 triplets...and Apotar was Agfa's designation for triplet lenses.
