The Zeiss Ikon Bundle combines a lens, lens shade and a matching viewfinder (when applicable) to create a ready to shoot kit with a cost savings over buying the components individually.

The Zeiss Ikon 35mm Rangefinder Manual Focus Camera Body combines a classical design with easy-to-use operation. Features and controls are designed to make practical photography comfortable and free from unpleasant surprises caused by the camera. Manual or auto TTL exposure metering as well as an AE-lock function gives you complete control of the exposure situation.

Unlike 35mm SLR camera viewfinders that can only show little more than 90% of what will be recorded on film, the Zeiss Ikon viewfinder lets you see the area that surrounds the actual image giving you greater possibilities and confidence as you compose each image. What's more, the triangulation rangefinder combined with a viewfinder base that is the widest available means that you can expect extreme accuracy and wide-angle focusing precision.

The Zeiss 35mm f/2.8 C Biogon T* ZM Lens is a compact wide angle lens designed for full integration with TTL-exposure metering. It has a minimum focusing distance of 2.3' (0.7 m), and offers ultra-sharp resolving power and next to zero distortion. The C in its name stands for compact: it is less then 2.2" (55mm) long.

The Carl Zeiss range of T* ZM-mount lenses offers high standards in terms of performance, reliability and, of course, image quality. You can count on highly advanced flare control for crisp and brilliant images. Virtually zero geometric distortion ensures precise accuracy when reproducing shapes, especially useful when photographing products and architecture.

    Comments about Zeiss Ikon Rangefinder Film Camera, 35mm f/2.8 C Biogon T* ZM Lens Bundle (Black):

    A precision rangefinder camera bundled with a wonerfully sharp 35mm lens - a match made in heaven!

    The fit and finish of the Zeiss Ikon ZI are nothing less than superb! A solid machine that's a joy to use for its sensible ergonomics and it's stunning looks.

    The viewfinder is bright and large. The metering is good. The only downside is if the little batteries go out, it's a paperweight until you put fresh ones in so keep an extra set in your bag.

    The bundled 35mm biogon is a great piece of glass and outperforms the equivalent Leica lens for sharpness across the frame. I bought this specific bundle especially for this lens.
