    Zeiss Contax IIIa with f/1.5 Sonnar, color dial, late model, works perfectly

    For sale: Zeiss Contax IIIa late model 35mm camera, with the color dial and the standard PC flash synch contact. This is the most sought-after Zeiss Contax post-WWII 35mm camera, and is considered by many experts to be the best-made 35mm camera in its day. This Contax IIIa is fitted with the famous Carl Zeiss 50mm f/1.5 Sonnar lens, which is marked in feet and is factory coated. The chrome finish of the Sonnar is flawless, as are the optics...no dust, no fog, no fungus, no scratches.

    The shutter, rangefinder, film transport, frame counter and self-timer all work properly. The vertical shutter curtains are in perfect working order; even the slow speeds are accurate, although they have not been electronically tested. More amazing is the fact that the built-in light meter works and is accurate, as measured against a vintage Gossen Lunasix meter.

    Everything about this Contax is original, down to its removeable Zeiss Contax film take-up spool.

    This camera can be displayed in any Zeiss collection with pride, or it can still be used to produce remarkable images from 35mm film, due to the legendary performance of its factory-coated Zeiss Sonnar lens.

    The back door exhibits the typical "Zeiss bumps", but they are not worn out, as can be seen in the picture.
    $475 + $15 postage
