Hi there,
I own a Contax AX with planar 1.7 50mm and Distagon 2.8 35mm.
It seems program works only with MM lenses;this is the case normally:http://www.zeissimages.com/mtf.php , but P mode doesn't work with the 35mm.
Notice that the smallest diaph is not written in green on the 35mm , but it is on the 50mm
Is there several Distagon 35mm at Zeiss?
Thank you.

Yes, programs only work with MM lenses. C/Y mount lenses exists in two versions: AE and MM. MM is a more recent version made to work with bodies allowing programs. Both your lenses exist in AE and MM versions. Here you can find a good C/Y lenses database: http://www.pebbleplace.com/Personal/Contax_db.html
