Silver Ikon rangefinder camera discontinued by Zeiss 0

Just weeks before the rumored announcement of the new Distagon T* 2,8/15 ZF.2/ZE super wide angle lens, Zeiss has now announced that they have discontinued the silver Ikon film rangefinder camera.

On Cosina Japan’s website, the silver Zeiss Ikon was labeled with: “This product has been discontinued.”

Zeiss Ikon Silver version discontinued Silver Ikon rangefinder camera discontinued by Zeiss

The silver Ikon rangefinder is joining last year’s candidate, the Ikon SW (without viewfinder/rangefinder version), on Zeiss’ list of discontinued cameras.

As consolation, the $1,618.00 black Zeiss Ikon rangefinder camera is still up for grabs.

Zeiss has previously stated that they are focused on producing more high-end lenses and have no plans of making a digital rangefinder camera in the future.
