Hi folks,

after seeing a Zeiss 22-154/2.8 Vario-Sonnar is a used camera store I was surprised as I had never heard on that lens before. They told me that only about 100 were made. I wonder why they stopped making them. I am curious how well it would perform. Was is superseded by something better? Or was is just so bad a design? Thanks for any input!

Cheers, Dave

Hehe, I knew you'd be intrigued Max! From their website I learned that it lacks aperture blades (for whatever that means) and it was made for 35mm and it's supposed to be high performance. Here's a picture: Posted Image
