Super Ikonta BX

New to my collection today is this Zeiss Ikon 533/16, aka Super Ikonta BX. The penultimate member of the long Ikonta 6x6 lineup, this camera features an updated frame counter allowing the ability to take (gasp) 12 properly-spaced 6x6 images on a roll of 120 film, as well as a somewhat ugly, and in my example non-functional uncoupled selenium light meter, which might be the same unsightly meter that Zeiss Ikon tacked atop the Contax IIIa, which spoils the aesthetics of the uncluttered top plate of the previous Ikonta 6x6 cameras. My example has an uncoated Tessar f2.8 lens, many were fitted with a coated Tessar lens of the same specifications.
