General Carl Zeiss Jena Information

Carl Zeiss Jena is the Eastern branch of the legendary Carl Zeiss Company and appeared under this name after World War II. At that particular time Carl Zeiss, which had been founded in Jena in 1846 as an optics workshop, was divided between the two German states. One part of the company continued production in Jena, the German Democratic Republic, while the other relocated in Oberkochen, West Germany.

Carl Zeiss Jena built lenses in the M42 and Exakta mounts. Later they also used the Prakticar bayonet system. The company not only produced camera lenses, but also binoculars, industrial optics and optical equipment for the military.

When sold in Eastern European countries, the lenses were named "Carl Zeiss Jena". But when sold in the Western countries, they were branded simply “aus Jena” or just "Jena", as Carl Zeiss West Germany had the right to use the original name.

Their portfolio includes many generations of lenses such as the Tessar, the Sonnar, the Pancolar and the Flektogon. Through the years, their lenses had different exterior designs and trims: the older ones were chromed and then came the "zebra" type. The latest generation of classic Carl Zeiss Jena lenses was made of plain metal with red or green markings. The Western branch also developed the Sonnar and the Tessar, albeit in different focal length, along with other lens series such as the Biogon, Distagon and Planar.

Optics-wise, the quality of Jena lenses was very solid. Mechanically though, their quality differed, from very good for the most part of their existence to only good in the final years (late 1980s - early 1990s). In fact, we consider that they cannot match the build quality displayed by premium Japanese lenses, such as the Takumar series made by Asahi Pentax.

Compared to other German brands, Carl Zeiss lenses have a certain reputation and which hasn't been surpassed as time went by.

Looking after your camera

Use a Camera Bag

A camera bag does more than just protect the camera against scratches and dust: It keeps it safe from rain because many are waterproof on the outside.

Be Very Careful Around the LCD Screen and Camera Lens

Use only special equipment to clean your camera’s LCD screen and camera lens. Buy a special cleaning kit that includes liquid solutions, microfiber cloths and brushes that have been specially designed to clean your camera lens.

Never Leave Your Batteries in Your Camera for Too Long
Many camera batteries are now alkaline or lithium formats. If you keep your camera with the batteries inside of it in a moist area, then the batteries can get corrosive. So if you’re thinking about just putting your camera on the shelf for several months, do yourself a favor and remove them.

Turn Your Camera Off Prior to Doing Anything

Before you do anything to your camera, always keep in mind that it should be turned off first. No matter what it is—swapping lenses, changing memory cards or disconnecting or attaching cables—your camera should be turned off.

Cold and Wet Weather Can Wreak Havoc on Your Camera Body
Take your camera out only in a waterproof bag. If the weather’s unusually cold, just wrap your camera in a plastic bag that has silica desiccant packets for the reduction of moisture. It’s also a smart idea to have a soft towel with you to wipe off any moisture, just in case it should get on your camera.

Good Memory Card Care Is Good Camera Care

Only transport your memory cards inside of a protective caseMake sure the memory cards stay dust-free at all times. When removing memory cards, make sure you do so indoors or in non-dusty situations.
Make sure that you keep memory cards only in cool places. Never keep them in places where they may heat up, like dashboards or glove compartments.
Never place your memory cards close to magnetic sources. Examples of magnetic sources are things such as audio speakers, TV monitors and actual magnets.

Use a Filter to Protect Your Camera Lens

The lens of your camera is naturally fragile. As such, it’s susceptible to scratches, cracks, dents…you name it. A UV filter will not only will you give your lens a fighting chance, but you’ll also enhance the quality of your pictures.

Condensation Can Be Controlled

Condensation normally happens when you move your camera between different temperatures.
Allow your camera a chance to naturally get used to the hotter environment. Don’t place it inside a closed plastic bag when transporting it between different temperatures! Just let the camera sit in the humid temperature for a while, until condensation disappears.
If this still doesn’t get rid of all of it, you can utilize a soft cloth to wipe away any remaining moisture and marks left behind from the condensation.
