The Zeiss Ikon Bundle combines a camera, lens and lens shade 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 50mm f/1.5 C Sonnar T* ZM Lens is a fast, bright lens that offers well controlled distortion and produces a very accurate representation of objects. The C in its name stands for Compact, and this lens is not much bigger or heavier than the slower 50mm f/2 lens in this same range. It is a very versatile lens for photo-journalistic work in general and for available light photography in particular.
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.
