View Full Version : Where to buy... Contax G leather system bag
Hi, Iam new owner of the G2 system with all the lenser, TLA 200 flash ect. I need he leather bag for this system. I am in USA, does any of you guys know of any place, or any one who has one for sale.
Thanks for your help
I have a very nice black leather shoulder bag, that I bought from Eric Wong in Hong Kong, which was made especially for the Contax G2 plus lenses and accessories. It is an original Contax item, and, according to Eric, "...came with G2 70 year limited set from Contax Japan." By that, I guess he means 70 year anniversary of Contax. I believe that it was only available in Asia. At any rate, it is a very fine bag, and I paid about $130 for it. My recollection is that he had only a limited number of the bags, so he may have sold them all. It is worth a try to contact him, and if he still has some available, he will send you a photograph. His e-mail address is: firstname.lastname@example.org I found Eric reliable and efficient to deal with. I also have the Contax G System brown leather shoulder bag that was available in this country. While the domestic model is slightly more sturdy, i.e. thicker leather, and an all leather shoulder strap, I actually like Eric's bag a little better. His is made of a buttery soft black leather (which I personally find more attractive) and is a bit roomier, easily holding the G2 body, 3 lenses, the small flash head, filters, and film. I see the brown leather domestic model very occasionally on eBay, and the last one sold for about $270, as I recall. Give Eric a try. Best of luck!
Bill, I will email him now... Thanks for your help. I am just getting in to the RFC, but love it because of guys like U, ready to help.
