Zeiss, when they were building their legendary 80-200 that will focus almost
down to the front lens element (and is as sharp as single focal length
lenses and cost it) rejected almost 80 or 90 per cent if I remember
correctly. Some ungodly number, anyway. That's according to Blake Ziegler,
the US Contax rep. who is also the father of the G1.
