lexus marketing plans : The Zeiss lenses are german designs (mostly) produced in Japan. ONly some very special lenses are still produced in Germany (fisheye, 15mm wideangle, 35mm shift, 300/2.8 tele etc.). For a short time the japanese and the german plants produced the same lens type parallel, but in the shop the german one was more expensive. If you consider Zeiss lenses as german or japanese, is a purely subjective thing. For us, the Chrysler Voyager van is an american car, though it is produced in Austria (for central european market, that is). But on the other hand, Ford (Europe) and Opel cars are thought of as german cars, because they are designed, developed and built in Germany, but in fact they are american companies.In fact the label "Germany" has nothing to do with a built-in superior quality. I am sure that every other company in the world can produce extremely fine products. The problem is that the modern mass market seems not to accept products that last too long. The massive high quality cameras which were so common twenty or thirty years ago, only occupy an "ecological niche" in todays photographic market. It is nearly impossible for a modern firm to concentrate on that niche only. Leitz for instance has massive economical problems, Zeiss Germany too. It is possible for an industrial giant like Kyocera to take high-quality consumer products with him, just for "hobby".As Zeiss lenses are concerned, I personally have doubts if all their lenses are better than for instance Nikon lenses. Some of the Zeiss designs are older which today still belong to the best, but maybe not to the very best any more. The 2.8/180 sonnar is good, but if newly calculated, it could be better. The same counts for some other lenses, the 1.4/85, the 2.8/25 etc. There are some new designs (esp. the 3.4/180 Apo by Leitz) which now set the limit of what can be done. The same is with zoom lenses. I am sure that most of the high-end Canon and Nikon zooms perform better than their Zeiss counterparts. But there are still several Zeiss lenses which now define that technical limit, their super-wide-angles are just one example.

It's the "media-rich" ads that bother me."Users spend more time with the new ads", eh? That's because they'll takethat much longer to download at the 21.6 - 24 Kb telco lines I'm stuck behind.I already waste enough time downloading pages with normal banner ads. IfProxomitron can't make it better I'll just keep away (in droves) from anyother such content providers.--John Oliver, System Administrator ConnectNet, an Allegiance Telecom company 6370 Lusk Blvd. Ste F103 (858) 638-2020San Diego, CA. 92121 FAX: (858) 623-1505Go to browser options - turn images off.Major speed improvement, no ads and no extra cost.And/or add just a half-dozen entries in your HOSTS file if on a Win/NT/Win2K platform, and route the referrals to the ad sites to 127.0.0.1.
