Now we are with Carl Zeiss Jena in early fifties !

I just got a Flektogon 35 F/2.8 for Praktina, and got a serious adapter problem, now solved. I will see if it makes any chance for the Sony 35 F/1.8. This Flektogon is also a macro lens ! and one of the first wide angles ever made.

Not wanting to start an arguement, I am just trying to recall my camera history.  Isn't Prakina an East German version of a Carl Zeiss 'Contaflex' and were built and sold much cheaper?  As a highschool student, I think I wanted one once because that was all I felt I could afford.  At this time in my life, I don't think I would touch one though because communist countries had quality issues.
