Description
Zeiss Ikon, Contax IIIA rangefinder camera with superb Zeiss Opton 50/1.5 Sonnar T, exc++++
Rangefinder camera - exc++++ condition

Exc++++ condition for this Zeiss Ikon Contax IIIA rangefinder camera (colored speeds number), with a Zeiss Opton 50mm F:1.5 Sonnar T.
The shutter "works" and the speeds have a good "sound" , also light meter, self timer and rangefinder are in working order, but we can't guarantee the accuracy of the various functionality.
The finder is clean and the rangefinder has a good contrast for its age.
The lens is the excellent Zeiss Opton 50mm F:1.5 Sonnar T, certainly the best 50mm produced by Zeiss for the Contax rangefinder system, but also better than other lenses of other brand of the period.
It's in great condition, as is possible to see from the pictures, exc++++ but also near mint.
The glasses are in great condition too, very clean with some little dust inside. Hard to find so old lenses in these optical condition.
There are some oil on the blades.
There is the original film spool, the ready case, front cap of the lens and a lens hood (I don't know if it's of the right period).
The serial numbre of the camera is C881, not easy to find these camera with only 3 digit serial number.
A very nice camera, not easy to find in these condition.
