"Zeiss's M-mount rangefinder film camera, the Zeiss Ikon, made by Cosina, has its silver version discontinued, as stated on Cosina's website.
Let's do a simple account.The German made ZM Sonnar 85/2 was discontinued; Silver version of ZM lenses was once rumored to be discontinued; Zeiss Ikon SW was discontinued; Now the silver ZI is discontinued.
If I am allowed to guess, the current German made ZM Distagon 15/2.8 will probably be replaced by a Cosina made version, if not to be discontinued (especially with the intro. of a 15mm Distagon for SLR)."
