I own a silver ZI M with a Biogon M 35/2.

I might be very tempted by someone who wants to sell their ZM 50/2 to finance the new ZM 50/1.5.

Silver with the 28 mm. Still lusting in my heart for the 25/2.8.

Oooo a club! yes, a club! We can have jackets and such.. walk around with the cameras (begin "Brick House" theme music), troll the leica threads and post snooty remarks, and smirk at the people on the streets!

I think both ZeissFan and Huck Fin have a ZI as well, haven't seen them post in a while.

focus on something at least a few miles away and see if the lens/camera can focus on it properly.

i also use the picture frame test for a close focus exercise, focus on the corner of a frame on the wall, look for both vertical and horizontal allignment.

What I have noticed today is that some elements very far are actualy in focus just lightly before infinity, maybe I need to focus on objects which are more far

Joe... no fair changing the topic title. It was who owns a zeiss ikon and not who owns a currently in productions zeiss ikon.

And yeah, jackets would be cool, Leather with the Zeiss logo embossed on the back.

Hey Memphis: is that a 515?

Joe I stand corrected.

Memphis: she is a beauty, I am looking for one of those myself. My father taught me how to use a camera with one of those.
It should be a great shooter. Have fun.

OK. Tried to hide, but you got me.

Black ZI, with 50 planar and 25 biogon, plus a bunch of other lenses that see occasional use on the ZI.

Hm, I have to admit to you guys. I own a ZI silver beauty Limited Edition #1160 and a Biogon 35/2 since july 7, 2006.

So far I've taken 46 rolls of film with it. That thing is going to ruin me.

thats a good number of users here and so far everyone looks to be happy with it. I wonder if anyone got one and felt disapointed with it or whatnot.

the more i use it the more i like it.

especially the lenses, they just feel so smooth in use. and of course the finder makes focusing so much easier.
