My father owned a circa-1967 Contaflex with the 50mm f/2.8 and a 115mm telephoto. Nice, impressive-looking, big shiny camera, good ergonomics, great lenses. The meter gave out early in its life and by then fixing it was more expensive than buying a new Canon AE-1. I've since heard the meters were a weak point. The only thing I didn't like about the camera is that the mirror does not return after exposure. The view screen remains blacked-out until you re-cock the shutter.
