    It's not for everybody, I suppose, but I think 6x9 (cm) is a lovely size for contact prints. You have to get up close and personal with the print to appreciate it at that size, which to me makes it feel much more intimate and communicative, less like the one-sided conversation that is "art gallery" presentation.

    That said, I think most labs can print at whatever size and proportions you ask for, though you may have to pay for the next largest standard size. If you want 6x9 inches, they'll probably charge you for an 8x10, and in fact they'll probably print it on 8x10 and trim to the requested size.

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    Sounds like a shutter swap, as the Mess Ikonta 524/2 used only a Pronto(r) or Compur shutter with this model and had either a Novar or a West German Tessar.

    I don't recall Zeiss Ikon using East Germany parts with this model, which was among the last of its folding cameras.

    Regardless, as long as the shutter is running properly and the lens is clean and collimated, you should get very good photos.
