Odd that it looks like the fstops are organized in reverse of most lenses I own.

this was the fastest 35mm lens at the time it came out, slightly before the Nikkor 35/1.8 and the Canon 35/1.8 and the f1.5.
Zunow was a small independent maker that pushed the envelope,
so all the big players watched what it made for inspiration and later brought out their own designs for competition on the market.
