Wrong Image for Zeiss lens


the image shown for the Pentax version of the Zeiss 100/2 Makro Planar shows the Nikon version and can fool people into believing that the lens has no automatic aperture on a Pentax camera.

I think this should be corrected. It is unfortunate that in this particular case the often present (unhelpful) comment "Image for illustrative purposes only" is missing.

Thanks for you feedback.
You are welcome.

Please excuse the double posting. This is the one I intended to get through as it has a more specific link to the user who was getting confused by the image.

I couldn't correct the first attempt to this post because it had to be moderator approved and I didn't expect both posts to become approved.

It is definitely the Nikon model that is currently showed under Pentax so there isn't really anything for the web department to review. There is something to edit.

Its also the wrong image for the 50mm/2 Makro-Planar and several others. In fact, it appears that for the nine ZK lenses, only the 25mm, 50mm/1.4 and 18mm have the correct images up.

Thanks. I believe the image is corrected. FWIW every product page on our site has a "See any errors on this page? Let us know," link you can use. It's certainly faster and more effective than posting here.

I still see the wrong one, same for at least one for the set that Blue flagged.

I cleared my cache; the problem doesn't seem to be at my end.

Thanks for the hint with the link on your page.
