Type: Rangefinder

A 531


Zeiss Ikon

Focus Type: Manual
Hello. Up for your consideration this week is a nice Zeiss Ikon Super Ikonta A (531) 6x4.5 medium format folding rangefinder camera complete with a Novar-Anastigmat 7.5cm (75mm) f/3.5 lens. Camera Serial # J99478. The housing of this particular camera is in good condition exhibiting some normal signs of use that includes some blemishing, scratching, and loss of finish on the more vulnerable of surfaces. The leather is complete and generally unscathed. The Zeiss Ikon logo is somewhat brassed as is the eye-piece window. The bellows are supple and light tight. The camera erects slowly but with ease and also collapses smoothly. The viewfinder is clean and readily useable, and the focus is smooth. The rangefinder is accurate in alignment as well as operation and the rangefinder patch is bright and contrasty. The shutter times well on all settings and both the aperture as well as the shutter blades are dry and free from oil contamination. The optical glass is clean and free from fungi, haze, separation, coating flaws, blemishing, and scratching. A penlight reveals some speckles of internal dust and some fine cleaning marks. Neither of these defects will have any affect upon rendered image quality. Please read, re-read, and fully understand what you are bidding on.
