Comments about Zeiss Ikon 35mm Rangefinder Camera Body:

I have owned this camera for a couple of months now and could not be happier with it. It is an absolute pleasure to use, the viewfinder is bright and the aperture priority mode is fantastic. Unlike the Leica M6 which I also own and love, the Ikon is very easy to load -- the entire back swings open. In addition, the Ikon has a small window in the back of the camera which shows the side of the film canister -- a great feature for forgetful people who never remember what kind of film they have loaded. The meter can be sometimes a little difficult to read in very bright sunlight, but that has not been a problem for me. The only imperfection in this camera is the finish. The silver paint gets scratched very easily, which is unfortunate as the camera is otherwise very beautiful. Unless you really like the kind of character added to the camera's body by gray scratches, some sort of case is essential.
