I like the build quality of the Zeiss, the performance and high quality of the Zeiss lenses, the Ikon's long base rangefinder and its meter coupled Copal shutter.

I recently read a scathing report by a photojournalist about his experience with multiple field failures, poor build quality and poor reliability of his M-7 Leica and his similar very negative experiences with a M8 Leica.
I don't know enough about the various Leicas to feel certain that any purchase I make in that arena would be the right one. I am very seriously close to springing for a Zeiss, though.

What do you find to be the main differences between your Leicas and the Zeiss?
