    A Kiev II is an inexpensive way to find out if you like the Contax as they were made on the Contax assembly line taken from Germany after WWII. Some of the earlier ones may even have actual Contax parts.

    I had been servicing the Contax IIa cameras, but between job changes and relocations, being laid off and then doing some out-of-town consulting work, there isn't much free time.

    The Contax IIa isn't an overly complex camera, and most problems can be sorted out by routine service. I think it's about a four-hour job at most, provided the camera isn't suffering from other issues (bent shutter slats, water damage, etc.).
