A) The origins of Leitz glass started 3 years after Zeiss
B) Oskar Barnack of Leitz was the originator of the 35mm still camera
C) Totally subjective, but I saw a difference between Zeiss glass and Leica glass old or new.
D) Zeiss is awesome and cheaper, but aside from the insanely overpriced new 50 f/2 APO, I'd take a Leica lens (old or new) made for a rangefinder over any Zeiss or VC lens. Even if the prices are extremely inflated.
E) For "any" SLR camera I wouldn't touch Leica glass, but would definitely go with Zeiss.
I am not arguing about how great Leica or Leica glass is ... what I am saying is that he could have just bought a really really nice Zeiss lens and for wedding purposes never told a difference.
Not all of us are the famed NYC headshot king haha... sometimes we can only afford Zeiss
