    For sale is a Contax IIIa camera with 50mm Sonnar F1.5 lens,which has an outstanding reputation. The 50/1.5 Sonnar is generally considered one of the best normal lenses ever. It is one of the few examples of a faster lens generally outperforming its slower f/2 counterpart. Camera has been tested, speeds are on the dot, lens has no haze, fungus, or scratches. Light meter does not work due to selenium cell being too old.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
