View Full Version : How hard is it to move the ZI Shutter dial?

How hard (or easy) is it to move the ZI Shutter speed dial? Is it CV R3A type hard, where you have to use two fingers or is it like M7 hard, where you can quite easily flick it around with one finger?

Mine was a bit heavy to move initially but has freed up with use and can now be moved with a fingertip ... a determined fingertip I might mention! :p

Needs breaking in like a leather saddle.

Actually I've just checked my Ikon and compared it to my M8 ... the shutter dial moves every bit as freely as the Leica's. I hadn't realised it had improved that much!

Such a good camera ... the Ikon I mean! :p

being a real man and possessing great strength, i can turn the dial with great ease, like a strong wind blowing a tiny leaf.

mine works fine in the times-section, but in "A" between +2 and -2 stops i need to use two fingers...
maybe i use it too less... :-(

If anyone finds the shutter dial hard to move on their Zeiss Ikon, I will happily take it off your hands so you don't have to suffer :p:D
