CARL ZEISS Macro 75-300mm 4.5-5.6 a rebadged one?

Just won the auction but I have very little to no information on the lens. Also, I heard it's a rebadged Tokina or Sigma.

CARL ZEISS Macro Lens for Pentax Asahi 75-300mm 4.5-5.6 - eBay (item 220536361844 end time Jan-12-10 18:53:27 PST)

Can someone share their thoughts?

Thanks,

It's a Carl Zeiss Jena - East German lens, it would be in M42 screwmount (invented by Contax in East Germany...one of the things Pentax stole from 'em...)

So what you're saying it's not a re-badged version? It's genuinely made by CZJ?

Here's some info. It seems all these Jenazooms were not made by CZJ.

Back in the 80s some Practicar and Carl Zeiss Jena lenses were rebadge Sigma. I used to have a Pratica BX20 and a 35 -70 and a 70-210 that were identical to the sigma version. They were both imported into the UK by the same company at the time. They also marketed them heavily in the photographic press that you could have Zeiss lenses for any make of camera. I found my versions to be very sharp for what in reality where economy lenses.
