Contax 139 Quartz

  • Contax 139 Quartz Black / Black Alligator

    High-end compact film SLR, fully restored and functional, complete with Carl Zeiss prime lens and Contax film winder. Beautifully built camera, rarely available in such nice shape, with original factory box included.

    Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard just installed for years of trouble-free operation.

    EXC+, no major dents or scuffs - just very minor brassing next to strap lugs and some micro-scratches on the bottom. Sharp lettering on the dials. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright and clear. Original leatherette was professionally replaced with genuine pigskin leather embossed in Black Alligator pattern - this camera looks and feels like new.


    • Carl Zeiss Planar T* 50mm f/1.7 lens in EXC++ condition. Crystal clear glass, no scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use. Highly rated prime lens, famous Zeiss sharpness - this lens often sells for $200 or more on its own. Toshiba UV filter, rear cap and new generic front cap included.
    • Contax 139 film winder, fully functional and refinished in matching Black Alligator leather. Minor scuffs throughout, consistent with normal use. Batteries not included.
    • High quality Samsonite padded camera case in excellent condition, a bit dusty.
    • Original Contax 139 body camera box, camera strap, body cap, viewfinder cup and a set of fresh batteries for the camera.
