Yashica 50mm f/1.7 ML  SOLD

In good condition. Recently cleaned and regreased. Glass is clean and clear. May be minor dust. One very small ding in front edge of the focus ring (see picture three).

Comes with Yashica 1A filter and generic lens caps.

£35 plus shipping



Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 AEJ

I have two of these available. Scroll down for the other.

In very good condition. The lens has been dismantled and the focusing mechanism regreased using my preferred combination of greases that gives a feel to the focus very close to as it was originally.

The glass is clean and clear. I can't see any dust but assume there will be some. I think I can see one tiny coating defect on an internal element - it won't have any effect. Aperture is clean and snappy.

Appears to have had minimal use with very little paint loss on the mount but otherwise near perfect cosmetics. Comes with original front cap and generic rear cap.

£125 pus shipping



 Zeiss 50mm f/1.7 AEJ  SOLD

In very good condition. The lens has been dismantled and the focusing mechanism regreased using my preferred combination of greases that gives a feel to the focus very close to as it was originally.

The glass is clean and clear. I can't see any dust but assume there will be some. Aperture is clean and snappy.

Shows minor signs of use on the mount and a tiny amount of paint loss on the front edge. Comes with generic front and rear caps and collapsible lens hood.





Contax RX body

This is a body I acquired recently with some other cameras but, as I already have an RXII, I have no need for it.

The camera has been fully tested. Shutter speeds have been checked and are all well within the specified limits. Both average and spot meters have been checked and adjusted. Flash functions have been checked using a TLA 280 flash unit. The data back is working correctly. The camera has been film tested.

The screen is clean but has one small mark on it - the screen is user replaceable if you wanted to source another. The body is clean with a few tiny signs of use. No paint missing anywhere. There is no bleeding of the LCD though there is a slight discolouration but the LCD is working correctly.

Both main and data back batteries are good but not new.

£180 plus shipping




Contax 139 body. Fully refurbished. SOLD
(let me know if you would be interested in future cameras like this that I might have available)

Has been dismantled and rebuilt with all cleaning, lubricating done as required. Internal and external light and dust seals replaced. All shutter speeds accurate. Very few signs of use. Clean screen. Recovered in Aki-Asahi smooth leather.





Contax 159 SOLD

(I'll have another 159 available shortly in similar condition to this one so please let me know if you are interested.)







Contax / Yashica Body and Rear Lens Caps 
  

I always keep a stock of these for when I get cameras sent for repair without them. I generally buy them in bulk so usually have some spare that I can sell.

Sold as a pair only.

Price: £4 per pair

 Replacement Battery Holders - fits Contax 139 and Yashica FX-3. Maybe others.
  
Sorry, I have no more stock of these. If I manage to get more in the future I'll list them again. I may have good used one available so please ask if you are looking for one.
