Zeiss Ikonta 521A 6x4.5 w Tessar "T" 3.5 EXCITING !!!!!!
WOW,Clean AND CLA'd...on the way.Not cheap-but all renovated,including the uneven focus plain "Tessar disease".
It seemed to me to pay a little more,and get more!!,I was plnning on getting a Zenobia,clean too-I bet would have served my purpose...but...the reviews on these Tessars;the 105mm 3.5...thought I'm getting the 75mm 3.5
And I have my Vanguard(fantastic)(223?)tripod - for slow film;200 or under...but I'm thinking of trying B+W ASA 400.
I like contrasty , any reccommendations...?I like Illford 125 ASA,but perfer 400 for hand holding - which I plan to do 75% of the time(3 rolls 400 to one roll 125ASA)
And I plan to use my classic Seconic Auto Leader 38 lightmeter(has hi,med,and low light settings!).
Anyone have a similar type camera they want to comment on?
Oh- and if this is OK see it here-I won it ;
Very happy day ! / Larry

OK - shot a roll of 400/color (I can convert to B+W)
But problems - whole roll central (?)light leak(?),and I paid $200.00,for a freashly CLA'ed...!
I'll show you the leak,and 3 shots I did sergery on.
Sending it back for repair or replace...(I'm kinda afraid...heard some horror stories)
Really this was a $20.00 waste(film/develope/CD),waste of time,and I got some would have been nice shots RUINED.
(But-this WAS my test roll...and to boot- I'm useing a Seconic Auto-Leader 38...slightly risky)(tightroap walk to get right exposures).
