    That's almost funny - just after I ordered it. Well, as long it's possible to have it serviced it doesn't matter to me.

    The ZI I had for almost three years was very happily mated to a Voigtlander Heliar Black 50mm, f2 M mount version. It never let me down. But good luck finding one.

    The optics are the same in the nickel version, right? CameraQuest still lists those available---they aren't especially cheap, but in the context of the price of a ZI body, what's a couple of hundred extra bucks for a really good lens?

    I think it's out of production. There probably are still a number of new cameras in the supply channel and at some stores. I've been toying with the idea of picking up a second body. Perhaps a black one this time around.

    Mustafa, can I use this line? It is SO perfect! How many times do we see, on these forums (fora) threads asking "What camera should I use?", or which film, lens, developer, etc.

    That line should be embedded as the standard first reply to all such queries.

    Made my day!

    ...except that in this case the question was about whether there was an issue with focus shift of one of the lenses or not.

    There are really no bad choices in 50mm class M mount lenses, they are all good, although some really are spectacular. As a rule you can never go wrong with Zeiss or Leica (in my opinion at least). If you need to save money all the Voigtlander choices are fine as are the Konica M's. Leica set the bar pretty high in M mount lens field, and the few companies that have ventured into that market must (of necessity) have a good product.
