Luminar lenses produced by Carl Zeiss West Germany (or Carl Zeiss Germany as the company used to call itself, even though at the time there were a West Germany and an East Germany). Eventually, Carl Zeiss gave up the Carl part and started using just the Zeiss name and the West Germany label on Luminars. By the time Germany was re-united, Zeiss had already stopped making Luminars. The labels usually don't say Luminar anywhere, but the 16mm, 25mm and 40mm sometimes have LUMINAR engraved in white on the barrel, at the rear (not in front) of the diaphragm ring. The Zeiss Luminar lenses always turned out to be the best performers for this application, together with the Zeiss S-Planar 74mm.Zeiss Luminars seem to be actively sought by photographers as well as collectors.
