Interested to know about Carl Zeiss Jena 35-70 f3.5-4.5

As the title states, I want to know more about this lens, I can't seem to find any information on it.
I didn't pick it up for much ~$20 but I was contemplating on selling it, still undecided about this though or if I do what it's price will be.

Thanks all

I have to say that it looks very similar to my Contax Zeiss 35-70 macro which is absolutely exceptional. You may find some information in this older thread where your lens, as well as others in that range, are discussed (with other links) : https://www.pentaxforums.com/forums/pentax-slr-lens-discussion/155221-would-c...seful-you.html

Thanks for the quick reply Frogfish.
This lens really does seem quite mysterious, I have read quite alot of the information in that thread you linked but I still don't really know even one solid fact about its origin.
I'm pretty interested in selling this thing to contribute to a 28/35mm AF prime or new ultra wide/wide angle lens....

Thanks,
Damon.

Would it help identify the quality of the lens if I posted pictures taken with it? (even though I am a very novice photographer it still may help, hopefully)
I find it really hard to tell the difference between a great lens and a normal lens sometimes (still novice) and I have only used about 10 different lenses so far (none of which were anything extraordinary and most were under $100/older lenses)

Thanks,
Damon.

Damon - maybe. Start a new thread with a title like (to get the maximum number of views) : Do you recognise this Carl Zeiss lens ?
