Zeiss 2.8 200mm sonar lens

Does anyone know anything about this lens. What kind of performance I could expect from it. I did a search and couldn't really find much

thanks

If you've seen it at a good price, in good conditions it'll probably be high quality. Zeiss got very high quality standarts and Quality control so their lenses are very well regarded and usually deliver.
The zeiss i've seen in action are beautifull and render good images.
Good thing about Zeiss too is that they are very valued and sought after by people with wealth, so if you don't like it you will probably be able to sell it very easy.

I was looking into such a lens too, 180mm or so. Found this site:
Carl Zeiss Jena M42 Flektogon Biotar Sonnar Exakta Biometar Pancolar Tessar Triotar - CARL ZEISS JENA
I think they have some amazing lenses.
