🌟🌟   Contax 139 body /1   🌟🌟 (see second one further down page)

Fully serviced and film tested. This body currently does not have covers fitted so buyer can choose the covers, which are included in the price (stock covers only). Very few signs of use. There is a very light scratch on the prism housing (see last picture) but difficult to see. Serial number 180256.

Price £160 plus postage.










🌟🌟   Contax 139 body /2   🌟🌟

Fully serviced and film tested. Very few signs of use. There is a scratch on the base plate (see last picture). Serial number 094938.

Price £140 plus postage.










 🌟🌟  Lens clear out  🌟🌟

I have 2 x Contax 50mm f/1.7 lenses available.

Also Yashica 28, 50 f/1.9 and 135mm lenses.

These are going on eBay soon.

 Strap Lugs

The strap lugs on the 139 are made of brass with a steel insert to stop the soft brass being worn away. Unfortunately, the idea doesn't work that well and the steel inserts move and allow the brass to be worn away. Later cameras, such as the RX, have stainless steel lugs which don't wear.


I once managed to get a small quantity of the stainless steel ones but have now used them all so have had some custom made. These are now available to buy. They fit the 139 and 159. I believe also the 137. They may also fit the RTS and RTSII but this needs confirming.


£14 per pair plus postage.


£25 per pair fitted plus camera return postage (139 and 159 only - contact me for others).


£12 per pair fitted if done as part of a full service (139 only).
