This is a presentation that the author made to the 1989 meeting of Zeiss Historica in Oberkochen where he demonstrated a series of lenses that were made in prototype form for the mentioned cameras but due to costs, anticipated difficulty in manufacturing or a sense of the market kept them from becoming production lenses. There were some significant possibilities and some surprising trademarks.
