Lenses which have caused me problems, frustrations or haven't lived up to expectations:

- Contax N Zeiss 24-85. An absolutely optically brilliant first sample broke (rather easily), 3 further samples never reached the same performance level.

I checked all MTFs and did not like one of the N lenses. So unfortunate the good copy broke. Maybe it was a little off spec in a way that made it much better?

- Rollei Zeiss 25 2.8 early version. Two samples were basically mush in all situations. A later version was better, but not outstanding (the current Loxia 25 is what I wanted all along). My worst Zeiss lens ever.

Was it really bad or too high expectation. If you have sample pic of exactly how bad it was it’s be great to compare with my copy.
