Description
-Camera body serial # U24640
-Lens serial #2993860
-The classic and RARE Contarex SPECIAL reflex camera body
-Built like a tank
-Classic Zeiss built quality
-Comes with matching chrome Zeiss 50mm Tessar f2.8 lens +cap which is actually a fantastic lens as it not only is a SHARP F2.8 but it also has a very close focus range. Approximately 12" focusing from the focus point to the film plane. Amazing and just as close as the S-PLANAR 50mm f2 which sells for $2000-3000 alone. 
-The Contarex Special is also a wonderful camera is it is an ALL MECHANICAL camera with no electronics. Also has the removable prism so you can switch the screens easily as well to a waist level finder!

A classic combination with the UPGRADED film back! A great set!
