I’ve been out of the office for over a week on holiday. My lady and I embarked on a road trip from Southern California to Oklahoma with stops along the way for sightseeing. Come Monday I’m back in the office with new goodies waiting for me from Zeiss. We ordered a replacement iris assembly for a Zeiss 12mm Ultra Prime. Such a nice lens. Anyway… Zeiss has a way of packaging their OEM parts in a way the excites me when opening them. All their cryptic scribbling and blue tape makes me happy. Everything is so clean and perfect. It’ll be nice to re-assmble this lens and make it new again.
