If I remember correctly, after WW2, Germany was split, the West Germany continued to use the name Carl Zeiss, and the East Germany continued to use the name Carl Zeiss Jena, then many years later, Carl Zeiss outsourced the lens production to Japan (Kyocera?).

"The" LOMO looks suspiciously like a Cosina (I think, it may have been marketed under a different name) from the early or mid 1980s.
