Well, I looked at an M7 image up REAL close, and ya know, that's not what
that was! So the mystery continues! What fun that would be! A Zeissamatic!

How d'ya know it doesn't say 'Zeitgeist'? ;-)

That is, I have to say, a closeup of a shutter speed dial on an M6 or M7,
with a teency bit of top plate and a little rangefinder light window, spiced
up with a bit of creative labeling. Get up real close on one and see if you
don't agree with me. 

But maybe I'm wrong! I'll go make one and see.

Someone claims that someone on the Contax list discovers yet another teaser 

Zeiss nameplate, with what looks to be a rangefinder window!!!

Now if it is digital.....
