How about the medical division?
I was talking about the mix-up people are having over the optics. I've not paid attention to unrelated sectors myself, so I won't blindly comment on such things.

I would love to own one prime Zeiss Lens. I have other Zeiss products that I am extremely happy with. I had Nikon & Garrett binoculars that I bought and sold because the smaller Zeiss were that much better at giving me the resolution that I needed whether night or daylight. I bought the Rokinon 14/2.4 after Dustin Abbot’s great review and haven’t been disappointed with the lens.

I wanted a Zeiss lens but can no longer afford the price of admission as I am now retired.

I would think that Zeiss will continue to make good earnings with the products that they bring to market.
5D Mark IV, Canon (135/2, 50/1.8, 24 ii/1.4,100 - 400 ii/4.5 - 5.6, EX EF 1.4x III), Rokinon 14/2.4, extension tubes, a mono pod and two tripods.
Zeiss Stemi 2000-c microscope, Williams Optics 110mm telescope & various binoculars (Zeiss 10x42 Fav)

I love Zeiss (Classic foremost) lenses, as my signature proves. But sometimes, AF is irreplacible. I wished that Canon would have released FF MILC, which would really be beneficial for more ergonomic MF. Right now, LV is my go-to method, which is not always ideal. But overall image quality, colours and contrast of Zeiss lenses are really something. And that comes from a person, who really likes L lenses as well :-)

if Zeiss would make AF-lenses for Canon and Nikon, their consumer products division might also grow more than just a disappointing 2% per annum ...   :P


PS: if it got no AF, I will not buy it. Neither camera nor lens. No matter what. :-)
