I just bought a Rolleiflex 2.8 a (type 1, # 1119665)) with Zeiss Opton Tessar ( 
# 535501).  I recall Marc's nice essay telling about the factory recall to swap 
the Opton Tessars for the original Jena versions, but I don't remember if he 
said the camera was also supplied originally with Opton lenses.

In contrast, I have another type 1 ( # 1114166 ) with Jena Tessar ( # 2311236). 
I've always liked the performance of this one, so it'll be interesting to run a 
comparison test.
