Hi again David,
I would like to mention also few interesting Carl Zeiss Jena Lenses…
Firs that comes to my mind is Biotar 75/1.5. There is also its Russian clone Hellios 40, which is still in production today as Helios 40-2.

There are few more Biotars to mention, another mythical Biotar 75/1.4 and lens made for super 16 film cameras (apentaflex) – Biotar 50/1.4.

Among CZJ lenses we shouldn’t forget about wide angle Flektogon 20/2.8 MC and earlier 20/4. Also Flektogon 35/2.4 MC is very nice 35mm lens with short MFD which makes it almost macro in that regard. Flektogon was base for later development of Carl Zeiss Oberkochen and today’s Zeiss – Distagons.

There are few longer CZJ lenses with goodreputation such as Sonnars 135/3.5 MC or 180/2.8 MC.
Among portrait lenses there is also 85/2 Sonnar. CZJ produced lenses for many cameras and formats and it would take really long article to list all of their charismatic products.
