The lenses webpage says

"The highly sophisticated lenses Distagon T* 2.8/15 ZM, Biogon T* 2.8/21 ZM 
and Sonnar T* 2/85 ZM complete the Carl Zeiss T* ZM-mount range and will be 
available in early 2005. ... We also decided to make these groundbreaking 
lenses, with the exception of the Biogon T* 2.8/21 ZM, at Carl Zeiss, 
Oberkochen in Germany. "

and the FAQ says

"Q: Who manufactures the ZI lenses?
A: 2 types are manufactured by Carl Zeiss in Oberkochen, 5 types are 
manufactured by Cosina in Japan. "

So the 15mm and the 85mm are German, Zeiss lenses, and the others are 
Cosina? I bet that 85 f2 will be incredible!

Thanks for the links!
