Description:

Zeiss Super Ikonta 53 ½ that just had a full CLA within the past six months. Lens is gorgeous! CLA was done at Certo6 (.com). His report said that he was highly surprised to see the condition of the glass, which is absolutely wonderful. 

 

If you’ve been looking for this model, here’s one that’s just about as good as it will ever get. You want this camera because it packs an extremely high quality Zeiss Tessar in the smallest package with the largest negative (6x9). It's a dense, slim, well-built thing that could easily be accommodated in any bag you pack at a little over 6 inches long and only 2inches wide when closed. It's not the most convenient thing to use being 70years old, it's definitely a process, but your efforts are rewarded by some serious image quality - no joke, this lens shreds.

 

This particular Ikonta is a later model, with a Compur-Rapid shutter that goes up to 1/400th, as well as a fabulous 105 f/3.5 Zeiss Tessar with the RARE and coveted Red T* coating. It also has a coupled rangefinder which I've found to be extremely accurate. Not all Ikontas have such features.

 

The RF patch is clear and has nice contrast and alignment, and it's easy to line up your focus accurately. The focus wheel on this camera is smooth and even, unlike most you will find listed anywhere. The shutter hums along and all speeds are correct. The pop-up viewfinder is yellowed with age and can be a little hard to use in harsh sunlight but does its job well enough. The negatives come out evenly spaced. The bellows are supple and light-tight.

 

Lens is bright and clear with no fungus, haze, or separation. There are a couple tiny cleaning marks that have no effect in IQ at all.

 

Cosmetically, the camera shows its age with a little pitting and paint loss on the metal, a couple tiny Zeiss Bumps on the leatherette. It's very presentable all things considered.

 

Also included is the somewhat hard to find and a bit pricey Zeiss A37 lens hood. Works like a charm and has the original box.

Looks interesting.....maybe you'd consider a trade deal for a pristine Veriwide 100, leitz finder.  But not even steven.
