You'd think they were made in Germany!

I can remember so many VWs and Audis that were nightmares in the 70's and 80's. And yet somehow, "legendary German engineering" still remained as a towering reputation. Bosch components that failed in the first week, head gaskets blowing, ac compressors dying - these lenses bear the German Zeiss name, but they're not made in Germany.

Sorry, it's just ironic to me.

FWIW - the fit and finish of these two primes is a step above the rest! No play, no problems.

And that reminds me, can anyone think of a legendary Zeiss zoom? Maybe the old Contax 35-70?
