I don't give a flying damn about eBay. I care about what Zeiss published, which is that non-exotic Contax RTS lenses were made at the old Taminon Plant in Kyocera. And Alan Nomano, Kyocera's head of marketing, certainly said that as well.

I was unaware that anyone still bought or used the Contax RTS system. Wonders never cease! When Kyocera dumped it, you couldn't give the gear away.
