The 2012 Carl Zeiss Photo Contest has taken an interesting twist this year. The contest is now open to photographers using any kind of Zeiss lens. Whether it's affixed to a rangefinder, SLR, DSLR or a smartphone fitted with a Carl Zeiss lens.

Yep, the Nokia Lumia Windows Phones, fitted with a Carl Zeiss lens, qualifies for the annual photo contest.

This year's contest theme is "the moment that knows no limit" and entries can be submitted at the official Carl Zeiss Lenses Group on Flickr. You'll need to tag your entries with the keyword "ZEISSContest2012" and the last day to enter is January 15, 2013.

Wow that article spelled gloom and doom for Microsoft their wording is soooo negative...... Personally speaking worst case scenario I'll go down with the effing ship because screw google and screw apple

It was another Microsoft bashing ZDNet piece where they included everything that connects to the internet. Lame, spun journalism.

Strictly speaking, no. But if you add in smartphones and tablets, Microsoft has been behind for over a year now...
