Zeiss

Just as I do a post on the surviving film cameras on the market one of them drops off the twig only hours later. Petapixel reports that Zeiss is getting out of the rangefinder camera market. This is a loss as they are reputedly very good cameras coming from a rich tradition. They are fine objects – a Volkswagen or maybe a BMW – and don’t come cheap but they are definitely an object of desire. B&H has the body + f2 Planar lens for $2100. Is that so much? Leica is the next step up the food chain but a body alone will cost you $5000.
