Think it would be a good idea to buy the tammy off ebay? Prices in Canada are ridiculously high.
Pretty sure Sony manufactures them. They brand them as Zeiss because they use the Zeiss coating. Just like how all those Leica lenses Panasonic has aren't actually manufactured by Leica. All Panasonic has to do is meet the "Leitz standards", whatever that is.
EDIT: Just to add, what differentiates the Zeiss lenses for the Sony DSLR's from the P&S's is that they're designed by Zeiss, so they're still good lenses.Edited by Marin - 7/28/09 at 3:59pm
