Zeiss Expands Into Accessories


Carl Zeiss is a name that means one thing - lenses.  Until now.  The company has officially announced a bit of expansion into accessories like filters and camera straps.

"It is important for us to not only deliver ideal image results, but to also make photography something to remember. This does not stop at lenses," says marketing manager Martin Klottig.  "We have also taken the demands and needs of photographers into consideration during development of our accessory products."

In addition to camera straps, Zeiss will be releasing UV and POL filters, designed to match well optically with Zeiss lenses.  They'll work with other lenses as well, thanks to standard thread diameters of 58, 67, 72 and 82mm.
