Default Ever used a Zeiss lens?

I just got this newsletter from B&H about using Zeiss lenses. Wow, they are $$$!

A great example of buying the best and crying only once. Suz's rarely used, in this digital age, medium format Hasselblad has a couple of Zeiss lens and, yes, they do take some awesome pics.

Meh. My old Sony point-n-shoot digicam has a Zeiss lens.

They make nice stuff but the name alone doesn't guarantee great pictures as I can easily demonstrate.

Default Nasa??

Does/did NASA use Zeiss optics for some of their 'projects'? I feel like I remember someone saying, "if they are good enough for NASA..."

Zeiss makes the best glass in the business. Contrast, color and sharpness can't be matched.

Glass is everything. The only thing the film or nowadays the sensor sees is glass. Oh yah, Checkbook solves lots of problems. The big guys, Nikon and Canon and such, all have different levels of glass and construction. One should get these notations of lense levels in your understanding. Did I mention the checkbook? also don't forget the factory service people for putting things back in order.
