    Hola!
    Today i've seen a very strange carl Zeiss Jena lens.

    The model was: carl Zeiss Jena II 28 mm 2.8.

    The body of this lens is not like the classic body of a Carl Zeiss Jena.

    It looks as a "modern" lens like a Canon FD or Pentax SMC for example...

    I believe,but i'm not sure,that the lens was this:

    They outsourced some stuff to Japan in their late years. I know they made the 29mm wide-angle and it was spectacular. I think this 28 is made by someone else.

    And you can see the "Made in Japan" markings on the lens. That looks to me to be the Olympus OM mount.
