Design variations. Most Zeiss lenses other than the mm mirror lens had the same design style, so when changes of styling were introduced, they were phased in to all other Zeiss lenses except the mirror lens. When buying any camera with inter-changeable lenses, bear in mind that the lens may not be the one that was on the camera when it was new.
This Praktisix II was manufactured between and , but the Tessar lens shown here was last produced in the Praktisix mount in February It would have been fitted to the original version of the Praktisix. The makers of the Praktisix decided that the camera would sell better if it had the option of a more prestigious standard lens than the four-element Tessar, although we should not forget that at the time the first Hasselblads were also being supplied in many markets with a Tessar lens.
However, the Meyer-Optik Primotar continued to be offered as an economical alternative for a number of years.

In , Kyocera acquired Yashica and continued production of both CONTAX and Yashica branded cameras until when the company discontinued all its photographic equipment manufacturing. The CONTAX cameras made good use of state-of-the-art electronics, while an extensive lineup of high quality lenses from Carl Zeiss further added to the appeal and success of the system. Zeiss optics served the need of both ordinary and special-purpose applications, and covered a range from the 16mm fisheye to the huge mm mirror lens.
Optically, there were generally no differences between the AE and the MM versions. The exceptions are the Distagon 2. Also, the coatings on MM lenses were changed and provide for higher contrast and a different color rendering MMs flare purple instead of green. Another difference between AE and MM lenses is in the shape of the aperture blades. When closing AE lenses down by 2 to 3 aperture stops, the aperture blades do no longer form a circle, but generate a Ninja-Star.
This irregular shape of the aperture creates a characteristic, busy bokeh in out-of-focus areas. Some photographers find the Ninja-stars charming, others regard them as annoying. The MM-variety of the Zeiss lenses do not have this particularity and show “regular” bokeh. Both production locations adhered to the same demanding quality control standards and the optical quality of the lenses is the same.

The Zeiss Sonnar is a photographic lens originally designed by Dr. Ludwig Bertele in  and patented by Zeiss Ikon. The name “Sonnar” is derived from the German word ” Sonne “, meaning sun. The first Zeiss production Sonnar was a Compared to Planar designs the Sonnars had more aberrations , but with fewer glass-to-air surfaces it had better contrast and less flare. Though compared to the earlier Tessar design, its faster aperture and lower chromatic aberration was a significant improvement.
The Sonnar has proved to be incompatible in shorter focal lengths with 35mm single-lens reflex SLR cameras due to the space taken up by an SLR’s mirror. Some portrait Sonnars were also made for large format LF cameras, presumably the press cameras — like Sonnar The coverage of these lenses was also not as good as many similar focal length lenses which limited the use of camera movements.
The Sonnar design has been extensively copied by other lens manufacturers, due to its excellent sharpness, low production cost and fast speed. A zoom lens derivative of the Sonnar, the Vario-Sonnar also exists, in which a number of lens groups are replaced with floating pairs of lens groups.
