Biotar sub-standard? Germans happily used them on their film cameras,
rather extensively during WW II. I think you might be thinking of the Jena
(GDR) Biometar instead, which later became known as Pentacon.

Indeed and, more importantly, I'm very happy with my Biogon. Plus, that
blue orb also looks nice.
