One could fake up a "Zeiss" lens by putting Zeiss branding on some lens made by someone else, and those who judge lenses by the brand name would swear up and down that the lens was magical.

In the only test of anything like that I've seen, 75% could tell Zeiss from Canon:

Web resolution images, 9 different lenses. Images are still on the first page, results are currently on the last page. I'd be curious to see how your test goes.

I don't think this means either are "magic" but I think it's pretty clear both brands have different rendering styles that photographers were able to notice.  One can take those cues and use them as they please.
