Contax IIIa Rangefinder Camera w/ 50mm f1.5 Sonnar Lens -Clean and Working-
The Contax was considered the equal of the Leica M3 in its day. The lenses are comparable, the finish level is better and the rangefinder has a wider base so it is more accurate.
This camera is also a lot less expensive!
Contax naming is little confusing; "III" means it has a meter and "a" is the second generation so the "IIIa" is the second generation metered model.
The camera comes with the top shelf 50mm f1.5 Sonnar, which is comparable to a Leica Summilux and is does not have the Leica haze problem.
This camera is in excellent working condition with little cosmetic wear. The shutter is strong and accurate. The meter and rangefinder are accurate. The lens glass is clean and scratch-free.
A lens cap and a battery are included.
