I have a question for everyone. I kind of hang out in this thread as if it is a forum, and for this reason, I probably also use some of my Nikon glass less than I should, because I don't have a natural place to post the photos I make with them. This is not really avoidable, but in any case, I don't feel that I am missing anything working almost exclusively with my Zeiss glass, apart from the 200/2 VR, which I give special exercise once in a while.
However, I also own a Contax 139Q, along with a 135/2.8 and 80-200/4, in addition to a Contax 645 kit, with 35/3.5, 80/2 and 120/4 Macro. I can also imagine buying one or two other Contax lenses, like the 100-300 and 400/4. The thing is that I am not supposed to post those photos here (although people have in the past posted C/Y shots here), and would need to post them in the C/Y thread. I don't often go there to post shots since the contributions come so rarely compared to here.
My question is then the following: how many people would think that this thread might be better if it were more formally just a Zeiss lens thread? This would allow not only ZF/ZF.2/ZE/ZM/ZS/ZK photos, but also ZA, Contax 35mm, Contax 645, and so on. All the older lenses don't receive so many posts, but I would personally find it interesting to see all Carl Zeiss (possibly except Jena) glass here, not just ZF/ZE etc. This is especially pertinent for lenses which currently don't exist in the new lineup, like super wides and teles.
