Go Back   Rangefinderforum.com > Cameras / Gear / Photography > Classic Film RangeFinders & Other Classics > Zeiss Contax

Zeiss Contax Forum for the classic Zeiss Contax I, II, III, IIa, IIIa , G series, and if you want to push it, the nice Contax point and shoots. Some spill over from the Kievs, the Soviet copy of the Contax II/III can also be expected. Plus the ONLY production camera ever made in classic Zeiss Contax Rangefinder mount WITH TTL metering ... the Voigtlander Bessa R2C.

First test shots using the Jena Sonnar 50/1.5.
I have to admit i was not expecting great sharpness wide open.
And i was also expecting crazy bokeh.
But the results are beautiful. Cant wait to keep trying the lens on other bodies and different films. Until the Contax II comes back from CLA and it stays permanently attached.

Prewar 1.5 Sonnar on an M3. I have a really clean one and it is stupid good. I should really use it more. I think this was the last time I used it, six years ago.

Thanks Erik,



We had a good day talking to a lot of Dutch veterans, including two who served in the NDVN in Korea and a few of the Police Actions in Indonesia.

A great many Impressive Shots. I love (pre-war) Zeiss lenses.

Lovely sharp results there Rick. My pre-war Sonnar 5cm f2 has a damaged rear element and won't produce anything near that clean on my Contax II.

Thanks John,
These have been cropped a little and there's a little motion blur in the second one.
