external ZEISS Pays Tribute to the Discontinued Ikon —ZEISS Blog

Easy handling and high precision — the analog Zeiss Ikon rangefinder camera is a collector’s item. In 2004, as digital cameras were just starting to conquer the market, we unveiled a completely new analog camera for fans of traditional photography, and revived the iconic brand name Zeiss Ikon.

Since then, thousands of these cameras have found their way to discerning photographers. Customers around the world value the Zeiss Ikon for its usability and high precision, and in particular for its top-quality rangefinder.

ZEISS has now decided to focus in the future more on the development, production and distribution of high-performance lenses for photography, cinematography and industrial applications. So, the production of the Zeiss Ikon has been discontinued end of 2012.
