MINT! CARL ZEISS JENA Sonnar 135/3.5 MC RED SLR LENS (M42 Mount)
 This auction is for MINT! M42 CARL ZEISS JENA Sonnar 135/3.5 MC RED lens with both caps (the back cap is not original.)

At the end of the WW II, Jena was incorporated into the Soviet occupation zone. Zeiss was relocated to Stuttgart, West Germany, while the remainder of Zeiss was taken over by the (Eastern) German Democratic Republic as Kombinat VEB Zeiss Jena. The lenses manufactured in Jena after the war are branded Carl Zeiss Jena, while the West German lenses are labelled Carl Zeiss. The occupying Russians took most of the existing Zeiss factories and tooling back to the Soviet Union as the Kiev camera works, which produced copies of the Contax and other Zeiss Ikon products.
The Sonnar design was originally designed by Dr. Ludwig Bertele in 1924 and patented by Zeiss. It has been extensively copied by other lens manufacturers, due to its excellent sharpness, low production cost and fast speed.
The Carl Zeiss Jena Sonnar was produced in the factory remaining in the original city of Jena in East Germany. After the war, the Russians also copied this lens as Jupiter 37A – (which I also have).
