I completely agree with you there. There is nothing wrong with the CZ lenses, my confusion is to do with the community rather than the product itself. There seems to be lot of hype around the fact that it's a Zeiss lens when in actual fact, it's just a normal lens, good at what it does, but nothing special.
Nothing wrong getting a great lens, yeah I agree (maybe all of us). But zeiss make lens for compact cameras and mobile phones... (So the clients think its an amazing device). Hope you understand my feels like a rugby ball (was doing autocad the entire day)...
