Popular or Modern Photography 20 or 30 years ago had an article on the 10
best lens ever made. I think Zeiss made 3 of them, and they were the only
company with more than one.

 I know there are a lot of great optics out there, but I still love Zeiss.
I have several Zeiss cameras, binoculars, microscopes, etc.

With everything going digital, and various health problems, I haven't
touched my Contax RTSs in years. I was planning on buying a digital body to
use my optics, but they never released one.

If anyone knows of a good digital body  that will adapt to RTS optics,
please let me know.
