Carl Zeiss Jena Lenses

Carl Zeiss Jena Lenses GDR

After World War II, Carl Zeiss Jena company split in two. One part was recreated in West Germany and based in Oberkochen. The other part remained in Jena, but soon lost the right to use the traditional names, like the brand name Zeiss and the related famous lens names. In the Western countries it was known as aus Jena (means from Jena), and used obvious abbreviations, or other names (for ex. T for Tessar, S for Sonnar). In the countries of the Eastern block, they continued to use the full names.
