Contax 139 Quartz
Contax 139 Quartz Black / Brown Ostrich
One of personal favorites - Contax 139 Quartz, fully restored and functional for your enjoyment. A compact, easy to use camera with a smooth quartz-controlled shutter and C/Y lens mount compatible with high-quality Carl Zeiss and Yashica lenses. Made in Japan quality. 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 ($25 value).
EXC++, no major blemishes, just some micro-scratches from normal use. Markings on the dials are clean and bright. Focusing screen and viewfinder are bright, with just a couple of small specs of dust in the field of view (will not affect camera function). Original leatherette professionally replaced with genuine pigskin leather embossed with Brown Ostrich pattern - beautiful color depth and texture, very pleasant to hold.
- Yashica ML 50mm f/1.9 lens in EXC condition. Nice sharp prime, crystal-clear glass, no obvious scratches or fungus. Aperture is snappy and blades are oil-free. Focusing is smooth. The barrel of the lens shows minimal signs of use. New generic front and rear caps included, as well as UV filter.
- Contax 139 power film winder. Minor exterior scratches, but works well. No corrosion in the battery chamber (batteries not included). Finished in matching leather to complement the camera. Rare accessory, commonly sells for $30 by itself.
- Contax TLA20 power flash. Fair cosmetic condition with heavy scratches on the back, but works properly. No corrosion in the battery chamber (batteries not included).
- Original Contax camera strap (fair shape), factory manual, set of fresh batteries and a roll of film (expired, use at your own risk).
