Contax IIIA + Tessar 50 3,5 working and good condition

Contax IIIa is a 35mm film interchangeable lens rangefinder camera manufactured by Zeiss Ikon AG., Stuttgart, West Germany and produced between March 1951- August 1962.

Contax IIIa is the same camera with Contax IIa with a light meter. Compared to the prewar Contax II and Contax III, the Contax IIa and IIIa used the same lens mount with a completely re-engineered shutter mechanism, new body, and much improved chrome finish.


The Contax IIIa are professional quality system 35mm Rangefinders with a large system of lenses and accessories, that some considered the best 35mm lenses during the 1950’s. The  Contax IIa and IIIa has a superb mechanical fit and finish, many believe better than even the legendary Leica M3.
