Contax 139 Quartz

  • Contax 139 Quartz Black / Black pigskin

    High-end compact film SLR, fully restored and functional, complete with a fast and sharp Yashica ML 50mm f/1.4 prime lens. Beautifully built camera, rarely available in such nice shape.

    Shutter, meter, film transport, timer all work properly. Brand new seals and mirror guard installed for years of trouble-free operation ($25 value).

    EXC, no dents or major blemishes. Some micro-scratches from normal use, mostly on the bottom. Markings on the dials are vivid and sharp. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright and 99% dust-free - there is just one small spec in the field of view. Original leatherette professionally replaced with genuine black pigskin leather.


    • Yashica ML 50mm f/1.4 prime lens. EXC+ condition. Crystal-clear glass, no noticeable scratches or fungus, just minor internal dust (will not affect optical performance in any way). Aperture is clean and works properly. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use, no dents. New generic front and rear caps included, as well as four 52mm filters - UV, Varicross, NDx4 and Diff. Case for the filters. NOTE Due to a slight difference in the position of aperture lever between Contax (Zeiss) and Yashica lenses, set aperture indication in the camera viewfinder is off by 1/2 stop. This linkage is purely mechanical, and has no effect on metering or camera performance.
    • Genuine Contax camera strap, body cap and a set of fresh batteries for the camera.
