There were these Meyer Optik Globica Luxus LF cameras
being made in East Germany long time ago. I wonder
how good their Carl Zeiss Jena lenses were.

I wonder if anybody here knows or has tried them.

Thank you, kind regards,

Optically, they were the same f/4.5 Tessar lenses that Zeiss and later Docter Optic sold for other purposes, except that the mount material used for the last series made for the mahogany Globica was clear lacquered brass, not aluminum.
