When we had to decide which kind of lenses we would like to use for our wooden glasses, we had no doubts that it had to be ZEISS LENSES. The reason is simple: they are the best ones on the market. If anything characterizes Zeiss, it is their great expertise and their research with a profound scientific and mathematical basis. Their constant evolution and continuous improvement ensure a high quality and a maximum of protection for your eyes.
We are not the only ones who think that Zeiss lenses are the leader in producing quality lenses.
It is no coincidence that in the 70s Zeiss lenses were chosen by the NASA to photograph their Apollo mission documenting the dark side of the universe and the arrival of men on the moon.
The Zeiss laboratory developed a lens brighter than ever before: the Zeiss Planar 50mm f0.7 lens of which only 10 pieces where produced. Six of these were bought by the NASA, one remained in the house of Zeiss and the remaining ones were used by the great filmmaker Stanley Kubrick to shoot a film that made history: Barry Lyndon (1975). The only light that Kubrick used to shoot this film were candles. You can’t do that with any lenses.
On an auction in 2011 one of these lenses was sold for more than 90.000 euros!
For the development of solar lenses, Zeiss employs the same meticulousness and level of quality.
It is obvious that they are experts in their field. They were actually the ones who developed the key formulas that form the basis of all high-performance optical lenses nowadays.
Beyond that the founder Carl Zeiss also joined forces with Ernst Abbe to improve the optical performance of microscopes. Some little known genius work.
And for all these reasons we only want to use ZEISS lenses for our wooden glasses. Even though we are a small company, we managed to establish a working relationship with the well-know Zeiss house, not least because of our insistence and determination. 😉
