    FS: Chrome Zeiss Ikon (ZM, ZI) in pristine shape

    This great camera is not getting the use it deserves, so it up for sale.

    I purchased it from a guy who won it in a contest directly from Zeiss but never used it because he did not shoot film. It came to me in new condition and I've barely put any wear on it. Please see the images below to appreciate the condition of this beauty!



    Mechanically, the camera is flawless. I ran 8-10 rolls through it without any issues: meter works as it should, lever and dials move well, VF and RF are clean and clear, etc.

    The biggest flaw on this camera is a tiny nick on the slot of the battery compartment.



    The rest is just as nice as it was when it left the factory.

    The camera is complete with:

    * Original Zeiss strap --never used
    * Original body cap
    * International Warranty Card
    * Inspection card
    * Manual
    * Battery package --opened to remove the batteries inserted in the camera
    * All foam inserts
    * The camera itself!




    The lenses and wrist band shown in some of the following images are not included in the sale.

    On with the photos!















    Sale price: $950.

    I will cover PayPal, and split actual insured shipping with CONUS buyers.

    A US sale is preferred, but Int'l buyers are welcome. We'll just need to figure out shipping on a case by case basis.

    I have one just like it, and would love another...but need to sell my M7 first!

    Anyway, I just wanted to say: "Dude! You KNOW how to take product shots!!"



    Good luck with the sale,
    -M.

    Well, it doesn't have that Leica "feel" or sound, and is not as cool to load, but...

    The ZI:
    - Takes fewer batteries (2 instead of 4)
    - Has a larger, brighter viewfinder
    - Has a top shutter speed of 2000 instead of 1000
    - Has a slightly quieter shutter.
    - Has an AE Lock button if you are using Aperture priority metering.

    Conversely, it does not take the standard viewfinder magnifiers that screw in.

    But don't buy it...buy my M7!



    Cheers,
    -M.

    Wait, you're saying a ZI has a quieter shutter than an M7?

    ...that's my impression. You don't agree?
    In any case, it's not like the M7 is loud!!

    Cheers,
    M.

    ha, I have a M6 TTL, don't need a M7 : )
    BTW, the M6's sound is indeed louder than I imagine..

    I think it looks good with black lenses too

    If wondering about references, I have sold on RFF and eBay and once here with good references.

    Actually, if you feel safer going through eBay this camera is listed there, but the price is $1050 to account for eBay fees.

    Oh, and I should clarify that $1050 is the eBay price, but it's $950 on GetDPI and RFF

    Anybody interested, make an offer now! I have a$1000 offer on eBay, closing in 7h from now (4pm ET 8/23) which equals $900 after ebay fees, so $950 on GetDPI is a better deal both for the buyer and for me. Hurry, hurry!

    Sorry, I realize this post goes against the 24h bump rule, but I thought people on the fence would want to know.
