What kind of camera is the Zeiss Ikon?
The Zeiss Ikon is a Leica M-mount rangefinder camera that is much nicer than I expected. It uses every Leica lens made for the M cameras since 1954, as well as Zeiss and Voigtländer lenses made for Leica. The Zeiss Ikon is a wonderfully easy-to-use camera.
What’s the difference between Zeiss Ikon and Leica M7?
The Zeiss Ikon allows direct locking adjustment of film speed, while the M7 offers no lock and a kludgy at best arrangement for setting film speed. My Leica M7 has been horribly unreliable in setting film speed, while the Zeiss Ikon I borrowed worked like every other camera.
What kind of Novar does Zeiss Ikonta use?
