This camera will make you feel like a film pro with zero effort. A real pleasure to shoot, Contax 137 MA features a motor-driven film transport, frame counter and lens aperture in the viewfinder and a buttery smooth quartz-controlled shutter. Uses common AA batteries as a power source! Gorgeous, very clean condition, with a fast normal prime and a telephoto zoom lens. Made in Japan quality, tastefully customized using Brown Ostrich patterned leather for your enjoyment, and matched to a high-quality Yashica prime lens. Full user manual is available at Butkus.org.
Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation NOTE: Small notch on the film door that pushes frame counter lever has worn a bit and a small piece of electrical tape was installed over it to help engage the frame counter - please see photos. This is purely cosmetic and barely noticeable.
