So did these ever ship or are they just vaporware?
And what is it with these European companies that can't be bothered to have a website. It's 2009, fer cryin' out loud.
See Rodenstock Website
"As part of the concentration on the core business of spectacles, Rodenstock divested itself of the whole photographic and precision-optical business and sold it to Linos AG, Göttingen in 2000."
Their website is: LINOS
but good luck finding any useful info there
