3.0 out of 5 stars Plenty of info 10 Nov 2010

There is plenty of information here for Zeiss collectors, but the editing has been skimped, because it is not as easy a read as it could have been - perhaps due to the authorship being split between Marc James Small and Charles Barringer.

5.0 out of 5 stars so good it leaves me wanting more . . . 11 July 2004
By "1handclapping" - Published on Amazon.com
Small & Barringer are THE American experts on Zeiss Ikon cameras.
This well written book has excellent, clear, detailed, black and white photos of many post WWII Zeiss Ikon cameras with an emphasis on the Contax rangefinder line. This title is loaded with information about Zeiss Ikon's amazing post war recovery and eventual failure in the face of the Japanese SLR juggernaut of the 60s and 70s
Aside: Zeiss Ikon fans should join the Zeiss Historica Society for more information.
For Zeiss Ikon lovers this is a 'Must Have' title. I only wish this book were longer. Highly recommended.

3.0 out of 5 stars Limited information, but may be helpful. 3 July 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
The information is so abbreviated that it is not too useful. They simply tried to cover too many product lines with too few pages. On the other hand, there's not a lot out there to aid camera afficianados and collectors.
