    Dr,
    Could you elaborate on "dummie" and what ever else you can add to enlighten us/me about the qualities of these lenses?

    I have seen them in shops in Japan.

    Further Information from Zeiss

    Take a look at the current issue of Camera Lens News, a news letter from zeiss: http://www.zeiss.de/C12567A8003B8B6F...e/CLN_20en.pdf
    They state that the new ZM lenses have resolved 400lp/mm on Gigabitfilm.

    Gigabitfilm has published the quote from a Zeiss letter on their German website, telling that Gigabitfilm has rendered the maximum resolution of their 320lp/mm test chart so well, that they assume even more potential: http://gigabitfilm.de/html/deutsch/a...elles_main.htm

    I guess Zeiss is currently developing a new Resolution Test Chart ;-)

    Well, I had a leica with me as I wanted to take some pictures with these lenses (15/85) and was very disappointed. I'm NOT interested in the camera or the 28/35/50 lenses so can not comment on these.

    The 15/2.8 is pretty big as well, reminds me of my 15/3.5 which is a Zeiss lens with a Leica R-mount. Think of 72 mm filter size. Focus Range 0.3 m up.

    My first relpy...(here anyway) 320lp/mm that is about 3 wavelengths of light, to get much better we will need to shoot using UV.

    It will be interesting to see how the lenses stack up against Leica glass; I looked at the website, and the camera is a thing of beauty! They are priced less than Leica, so maybe this system will be a more affordable option that will make RF acessible to more photographers.

    I remember my dad telling me that his first camera was a Zeiss Ikon, which he traded in later for a Pentax Spotmatic. Looking at prices that Zeiss Ikons go for on eBay compared to Pentax Spotmatics, that was a mistake.

    He also use to talk about how Nikon came from Zeiss Ikon during WWII in some type of Axis technology exchange, any truth to that story?

    I don´t know in this regard, I just know that many japanese camera companies incl. Nikon gained from the dispropriation and publication of german patents -incl. Zeiss- after WW2 through the allieds - secret or proprietary lens formulas, camera construction details, production methods went public by that and they were free to use them.

    I have heard that a lot of AP and UPI photogs in the combat areas of the world used Nikon enlarging lenses on Leicas and that is one of the ways Nikon gained a marketing edge. Any truth to that?
