Re: Pentax K vs Contax - I cannot tell the difference

I'm always late for the party :-\. Most has been said already, but one thing hasn't come up in my opinion:

One quality that separates Zeiss lenses from others is consistency in color and especially contrast. Also Zeiss lenses are generally considered to have smooth bokeh and to be sharp above average. 
There may well be better,sharper lenses from other makers out there or equally good ones as seems to be the case with the 1.4/50 or the 28mm lenses (as discussed before), but I doubt that there is as much consistency in the look of other lens makers whole product palette. If you're thinking about having lenses from one lens maker only, which is rather convenient, this is something that counts.
I'm not one of them, though, I always enjoy getting to know any new lens ;-).
