I've lusted after a Contax IIa for a long time and finally got one.
This one works well. Needed a little cleaning and has one Zeiss bump. Came with a Sonnar 50/2 (about which I will be posting, next) in great shape. No scratches, just a few specs of dust, no coating loss, all working as it should. Even the rangefinder seems to be as it should. Easy enough to focus, much easier than the Fed 2 I played with for a little while.
Processed my first roll last night. This is Tri-X at 1600, stand dev'd in rodinal. Shot indoors using a Luna Pro F meter ... I think this is at F2 but maybe 2.8.
