Zeiss has licensed its name or technology to various other companies including Hasselblad, Rollei, Yashica, Sony, Logitech and Alpa. The nature of the collaboration varies, from co-branding optics designed by another firm (e.g., Sony) to complete optical design and manufacturing (e.g., Hassleblad). On 17 December 2020, Vivo and they announced a long-term strategic partnership to jointly promote and develop breakthrough innovations in mobile imaging technology. The first “Vivo Zeiss co-engineered imaging system” will be featured in the Vivo X60 series. As part of the collaboration agreement, Vivo and Zeiss will establish the Vivo Zeiss Imaging Lab, a joint R&D program to innovate mobile imaging technology for Vivo’s flagship smartphones.

Around the world, binoculars and riflescopes from ZEISS are considered the most powerful in their market and are preferred for use in difficult lighting situations. This is closely linked to the term T* coating which has become synonymous with maximum light intensity and brightest images.
First-rate binoculars and riflescopes provide transmission values over 90%; measurements on the ZEISS Victory HT 8×54 showed a value of more than 95%. In practice, differences of 1 to 2% are unnoticeable. A 5% increase, however, provides decisive reserves in dwindling light and enables considerably longer observation and reliable aiming.
Although a high-quality branded 8 x 56 pair of binoculars and any simple 8 x 56 pair have the same exit pupil, the stand hunter will notice a major difference at dawn and twilight. The difference lies in the transmission. This value indicates the percent of incidental light that exits through the eyepiece again. The different impact of exit pupil and transmission on image brightness can be illustrated as follows: the exit pupil refers to the size of the window from which light exits the binoculars. On good branded or cheap binoculars having the same data, this window is generally the same. The transmission value, however, identifies the transparency of this window. Is it clear and bright or cloudy and dark?
