Add to this list:

Pentax SMC K 28mm f2

Nicknamed "the Hollywood" this Zeiss Distagon certainly fits the bill for "legendary."

I wonder if it is really as good as the Zeiss?

A section view of a lens (they seem to be identical) doesn't tell us about the glass used.

It can't be as good. It focuses in the WRONG direction.

The glass is the same.  The coatings are different, however, so it comes down to Zeiss T vs. Pentax SMC.  Personally, I think the SMC coatings are better, but I admit am heavily blinded by my affinity for Pentax.
