    Contax G1:

    Has a couple of minor nicks and scratches on the top plate, but generally in very good cosmetic condition and full working order.

    45mm Planar lens:

    Standard lens for this camera, has lens hood and the hood cap. Would prefer to sell this with the camera body.

    90mm Sonnar lens:

    90mm lens for this camera, has both caps, and also a lens hood. The hood is a repro of the Contax original, not a Contax hood, but it works well.

    Both lenses in very good optical and cosmetic condition. No fungus or scratches.

    I'd like £300 including postage within the EU for the body and 45mm lens, and £120 including EU postage for the 90mm lens.

    I might be prepared to do a deal on combining the two lenses and the body, or on postage.

    I'm also interested in a possible trade for M-mount or LTM mount lenses.

    Thanks!

    Matt

    P.S. I'm based in the UK. If anyone is in London or Oxford they are welcome to look at the camera or lenses before purchase.

    Sounds like a good offer for a very decent price. Must... resist... (I really shouldn't buy any more cameras with Yet Another Lens System, just use and expand my current systems.)

    I'm sure somebody will want to buy this.

    Also, if you are local and don't need postage, I can probably knock a few quid off for that, too.

    Ah, sorry. Looks interesting, but I only use roll film with my Rollei.

    If you'll notice, it is a 120 pressure plate as well as a cut film door. I am in the same boat, I only use roll film and it is a long story about how I ended up with this. Have you ever seen anything like this before?

    Contax G1 and two lenses

    Have Excellent Rolleiflex T with brightscreen, WLF, and prism in VG condition (no separation of prism elements), close up lenses (Rollei), Rollei lenshade, Rollei softfocus filter, and I think I can dig up the prism attachment for eyelevel focus thru the WLF open frame. Interested for trade on the G1 and the two lenses?

    No, as far as I know it's the stock G1. I've not tried it with the G2 lenses [the 35, and the 21] but I would assume it won't work with them. I can't say for sure, though. I've only used it with the 45 and the 90.

    Thanks,

    Matt

    It would have an actual green sticker inside the film compartment, left hand side if it has been updated.

    I'm pretty sure it hasn't got one. I don't have it in front of me to check, but I'm nearly 100% sure that it doesn't have a green sticker, and I'm fairly sure I asked when I bought it from the original owner, too. Sorry if I'm a bit vague, part of the reason I'm selling it is I've only used it twice in the past year, so I'll have to get it out of the bag and check later.
