    I may regret this later, but I've decided to sell off my Contax/Yashica film gear. I've already sold all the less desirable bodies, third party lenses, and parts with issues on eBay. What I have left now is all the good stuff. Everything is in excellent condition or better and everything is working properly.

    I can ship any single piece Priority Mail in the US for $10. I will consider shipping outside the US, but it will cost more. Serious offers considered, especially if interested in multiple items.

    Bodies (both include body caps and batteries):
    o Contax RX ($325)
    o Contax Aria ($150) - includes printed manual

    Lenses (all glass clean and clear; all apertures clean and "snappy"; all with front/rear caps):
    o Yashica ML 24mm f2.8 ($250)
    o Yashica ML 50mm f1.4 ($150) - I like this one better than the Zeiss 50/1.7 I had; includes box
    o Zeiss Sonnar T* 85mm f2.8 AEG ($350) - probably my favorite lens
    o Vivitar Series 1 105mm f2.5 1:1 macro ($325) - legendary macro lens
    o Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* 28-70mm f3.5-4.5 MMJ ($325) - includes box and Contax leather pouch

    Other:
    o Contax TLA360 flash ($125) - includes case and printed manual
    o Heliopan multi-coated UV filter 67mm ($75) - like new ($104 @B&H), fits the Zeiss 28-70
    o Heliopan circular polarizing filter 67mm ($100) - ($152 @B&H) fits the Zeiss 28-70
    o Yashica extension tube set ($50) - 3 tubes, use singly or in combination
    o Kiron Reverse-Mate reversing ring, 55mm to C/Y ($15)
    o Contax remote release ($10) - probably best to include with something else

    Returns accepted within 7 days if you are not satisfied.
    My eBay ID is RedRoverPizza. I have a 100% positive feedback score of 174.

    I received the Aria and have been using it all this week. It is lovely and more or less like new, with the protective plastic still over the LCD. It was packed very well and shipped quickly.

    The Yashica ML 50mm lens is sold.
    The Yashica ML 24mm which was earlier sold pending payment has been paid for and, thus, is sold.

    Hate to be reviving a super old thread, but is the RX and the Zeiss Vario-Sonnar still available?
