I have a carl zeiss jena 8x30 serial # 124690 what year is it

You likely have a set built between 1919 and 1930. If you go to this site (
The history of the telescope the binocular ) and scroll down (or search) to areas with Zeiss Binoculars, there are a number of files that have the information on runs. In my case, I looked at the Spreadsheet attached to the Zeiss Binocular Models entry, which , between lines 150 and 168, notes that binocs with the Lena logo were made from 1904 to 1945, and that serial numbers above 1 million began in 1919 and above 1,550,000 began in 1930, putting your pair in there more or less in the middle.

Fix aperture zeiss pancolar 50mmF1.8 Zebra

  • Aperture problems on this lens are normally caused by grease on the diaphragm blades. The only solution is to dismantle from the back. When the iris is exposed wipe over with lint free cloth or cotton buds with a small drop of solvent such as lightr fuel or meths. Wipe over with a dry cloth afterwards. Get used to how to dismantle and reassemble the lens, you might have to do this more than once.

Dear Sir,I would like to ask you to help me with determination of old Carl Zeiss Jena binocular 15x50. If you send me e-mail adress I can send you photos. I can not find similiar piece 15x50 in the Zeiss...

Carl Zeiss Jena is East German manufacture, that is why you don't find it in the Zeiss catalogue (it isn't Zeiss). It is also almost certainly post-war, as there was no East Germany before WW2.

Carl Zeiss Jena made inexpensive optical equipment for export to the West. The optical quality was fairly high, but not as good as the West German Zeiss, and the finish was less good.
