For sale this weekend only (Feb 7-8, 2004).

Beautiful, vintage Zeiss-Ikon Contaflex IV 35mm single lens reflex camera, with original leather case (incl. strap) and rubber lens hood. Made in Stuttgart, West Germany, circa 1958. Equipped with a Carl Zeiss Tessar f/2.8 lens. Mint condition overall and everthing works. Slow shutter speeds are bang on exact as compared with my new Nikon (rare for a camera of this vintage). Great collector's item that can actually be used. Must see. $80 Canadian obo. Am liquidating the few collector cameras I have.

This model has a selenium lightmeter that still works, as it is covered with a hinged flap.

P.S. No, I am not going digital
