Anyone shoot with a Zeiss Ikon Contessa S310?

I've had this camera for awhile now but never shot a roll through it. I tend to reach for my rangefinders or SLR's. Is zone focusing quite easy from the start? Anyone have tips for focusing? I'm afraid my first roll would be a bunch of out of focus frames, but i'm excited to see the results especially with the tessar lens. If anyone has pictures taken with this camera and wouldn't mind sharing that would be great! I'll be sure to post some from my first roll when they are processed. Here is a picture of mine taken with a Canon ae-1.

Zone focusing is really easy from the start. If you use f/8 or f/11 you can err your focus estimate by a meter or more at usual shooting distances and still get sharp photos. I've been using a Rollei 35 for a few months now and out of focus photos have never been a problem.

Zeiss Ikon S 310 is a great little camera so load it with a fresh roll of film and go out to take some photos!

Hi, I used to own one, sold it, regretted selling and managed to pick up another. Great little camera. Very solid and takes brilliant pictures. Obviously limited to its design but very capable.
