Yes, it so happens I have a MMG 85/1.4 too, apparently they are rare though.

You like the 25/2.8? I think I am aiming for that or the 28/2.8 as I find the (ZE) 21/2.8 too wide.

Thank you, StevenPA.
Carl Zeiss could do with an Erwin Puts equivalent.

these are blanket so there are exceptions:

yashica for early c/y lenses made in japan...midway early 80s kyocera bought yashica, kept yashica as a separated entity... c/y germany was zeiss oberkochen.

contax n/645 is all kyocera

ZE,ZF,ZK,ZM, ZS Zeiss Ikon (current rangefinder) is ALL Cosina

ZA is sony manufacturing i believe under license

hassy?rollei?

Contax G lenses were manufactured by Kyocera in a special "Zeiss factory enclave" with very stringent tolerances and specially trained assembly staff on the line. Exception was the Hologon, as mentioned, which was made in Germany.

Zeiss ZM lenses are made by Cosina/Voigtlaender, I think there are exceptions here as well, I think Ed Karaa knows which ones.

So, the 200/3.5 was Tele-Tessar, that seems correct and that is why I have a hard time remembering it... Thanks for the correction.

I like it, but stopped down only. Wide open it is bleh, but at f/8 I believe it is one of my sharpest lenses.

Also, the Makro-Planar 100/2.8 only exists in the AE variation, so there are AEG and AEJ models. Saying that AE is always made in Germany and MM in Japan is just plain incorrect.

In fact, there are AEG and AEJ copies from most lenses, even some MMG but less frequent. It seems the production was simultaneous in many cases.

Aren't there only a few Hassy and Roli models? I didn't think they were "lines" per say...


There were the Rollei F-Distagon 16/2.8, Distagon 25/2.8, Distagon 35/1.4, Planar 50/1.8 (a Zeiss Design not made for the Contax brand), Planar 85/1.4. Some of these (the 50/1.8 at least) were also made under the Voigtländer brand. The Rollei Sonnar 85/2.8 wasn't the same as the Contax, but probably still a Zeiss design (since "Sonnar" is a Zeiss trademark)?

The Planar 85/2 was the ZM made in Germany, but that one has been discontinued now. The ZM Distagon 15/2.8 is the only remaining ZM made in Germany, I believe.
