    Kyle, please post what you think of that camera. I almost bid on it, too. I have a hankering for a zeiss 6x9 folder and have been watching his offerings for several months, but can't decide which one to get. Viewfinder, rangefinder, coupled, uncoupled, tessar, novar, prewar, postwar, rapid, synchro,,,,,. Just too many choices.

    Will do, my main objective was to get something in 6x9. I almost exclusively shoot T-MAX 100, so I can live with the 1/250 top shutter speed of the Prontor-S. As far as the viewfinder vs. rangefinder I guess this will help me learn to judge distance better.

    Well I got my Ikonta saturday, and I've put 3 rolls of T-Max 100 through it since then. The shutter speeds are perfect, the self timer actually works and sounds healthy, and theres not a single light leak. I will definately be checking Certo6's ebay listings again if I'm ever in the market for another folder. Maybe a 6x6 voigtlander or agfa next.

    Theres a few on my flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/shootf...7644555326195/

    Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to get anywhere other than the woods with it, hopefully next weekend I'll get some good shots with it at the FPP walking workshop.

    Thank you, Kyle. My compliments on the one with the few leaves standing out from the rest of the woods. That kind of shot is pretty tricky with zone focusing. Even with the Novar it's really looking good. Tessar, Shmessar.....

    Yeah I like that one too, I believe I shot that at 1/60 at either f11 or f16. I pretty much just guessed the distance and crossed my fingers, it didn't help that the wind was blowing. Then when I saw the final product I was like WOW... thats pretty good for a 65 year old single coated lens. My original plans were to seek out a Super Ikonta with the 3.5 Tessar, but I've decided I'm plenty happy with the 4.5 Novar. I'm still waiting to see how the uncoated Rodenstock Trinar on my Franka Solida does.

    Edit: Just saw that Certo6 has another 521/2 listed for about the same price, with a 3.5 Novar.

    I had a Zeiss Ikonta 521 that I got in excelent condition. I think the camera was never used before because it still had the original wooden spool inside. It was a great camera! Shoot some dozens of rolls and sold to a friend.

    Well, somebody bought it. I was reeeeeeaaaaaly tempted, but I kept thinking I'll just end up getting GAS again next year and want a Tessar and some kind of rangefinder.
