Mint- condition Contax Aria with Contax-Zeiss 28-70mm f3.5-4.5 T* zoom lens.
Minor wear on hotshoe (paint chipped) and rub marks/small scratches on back door
The new CONTAX ARIA is the smallest , lightest CONTAX SLR ever at 16.2 ounces. It is the perfect camera for wilderness exploration or family outings. This fully- featured, durable, SLR provides advanced photographic capabilities designed for the discriminating yet active photographer. The Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar® T* 3.5-4.5/28-70 lens offers the focal length range most often used in 35 mm photography, indoors and outdoors.It combines the renowned image quality of a Carl Zeiss lens and the durability of a metal lens barrel with a moderate weight which is almost as low as that of a high quality 50 mm f/1.4 standard lens. Two separate precision rings are used for smooth focusing and zooming respectively, thus allowing to adjust one without affecting the other unintentionally. The special makro-function enables close-ups to cover object fields down to the size of e.g. a tulip blossom or an identity card (approx. 7 cm x 11 cm). An aspheric lens element and a special optical glass with anomalous partial dispersion are utilised to achieve a superb imaging performance while keeping the lens quite compact. The large filter thread of M 67 allows for the use of filters completely without blackening the corners of the image – even with the lens set to the wide angle position.
