Zeiss Distance Themselves From Baby Primes Products

Posted on Jun 8, 2011 by Definition Magazine

Carl Zeiss has gone to the trouble of distancing themselves from the Baby Primes range of lensesLast week we ran a news story about a new Zeiss-based lens product range called Baby Primes from a company called Kelvinkamera+, this week Carl Zeiss has distanced themselves from the range and denied any involvement with the product’s development.

“In the report, the company Kelvinkamera+ has announced a new line of lenses to be called ‘Carl Zeiss BabyPrimes’. It also states that the company has reached an agreement with Carl Zeiss. Furthermore, the report declares that the manufacturer has already worked on an earlier project at Carl Zeiss (DigiPrimes). This gives the impression that the babyPrime lenses were created together with, or with the approval of, Carl Zeiss.”

Zeiss go on to say that they are in no way involved with the Baby Primes project and does not maintain a relationship with the manufacturer. They also repudiate the fact that Kelvinkamera+ were involved with any previous DigiPrime project or indeed any other project at Carl Zeiss.

“Carl Zeiss cannot confirm that the optics used in the advertised product line are from Carl Zeiss, nor can we confirm that these optics meet the typically high standards of a Carl Zeiss lens.”

The conclusion being that these products cannot be covered under the international warranty of Carl Zeiss.
