Revisiting the Zeiss Ikon Ikonta - Photo Jottings

Revisiting the Zeiss Ikon Ikonta

I’ve totally updated the Zeiss Ikon Ikonta review using mostly new pictures, along with the now standard mountain aperture test scene.  I’ve also added more information gained through additional use, and then put the whole review in the same format as the newer camera reviews.

My dad bought this camera new in 1953, and I’ve had it for the last 10 years or so.  Using it was a chore as the shutter speeds were off quite a bit, and the focusing was out of whack so to speak.  After a recent  shutter cleaning and lens calibration by the famed Certo6, it now hums along nicely, and produces much higher technical quality photos than before.
