    DHW is very responsive to emails. I just had an FW serviced and got very prompt replies to every query.

    The description in the link says:

    They feature a renowned Zeiss-licensed, Rollei-built 80mm f/2.8 Planar lens and incorporate center-weighted TTL lightmetering with a viewfinder read-out and the capability of TTL "Off-the-Film" flash exposure.

    This "Zeiss-licensed, Rollei-built" stinks a bit of marketing lie to me. Isn't it much more likely that the lens are very well built by Zeiss themselves? That wouldn't detract at all from the qualities of the camera in any case.

    They lost that license for the lenses and now call their lenses Apogon.

    No. Indeed most of their lenses have been built by themselves in their factory. And some of the designs were built under license. I've been there on two factory tours some time ago and I've seen their lens production there.
    And as Dennis said, now the Zeiss license has not been extended, therefore the Apogon name.

    Best regards,
