Contax close-up lens mount. This is an accessory helical focusing mount that attaches to the lens mount of the camera. When used with a 50mm lens it allows very precise clasp focusing without the need to sight through the back of the camera. It is calibrated in units of 1 cm to 10 cm which is the distance at which the camera is in focus when a 50mm lens is mounted on this unit. It can also be used with the accessory ground glass viewer. This is a very rare accessory and is in MINT new condition. Price $325.00
Zeiss Contaprox Outfit. This is a fairly rare accessory in as close to mint condition as you are ever likely to see. It is a complete assembly of the highest quality macro photography acessories for the Contax camera. The Contaprox outfit consists of four pieces. These are the magnifying viewer with individual eyepiece diopter adjustment, focusing screen accessory, 1X extension tube, and the focusing unit with permanently attached coated Zeiss Macro Tessar 50mm f3.5 lens. The focusing unit is calibrated in units of distance as well as magnification ratio. This makes it extrordinarily easy to use. This Contaprox comes in its original velvet lined case which is in perfect original condition. Price $1275
Zeiss Panflex Reflex Box Outfit. This is a very rare accessory in as close to mint condition as you are ever likely to see. The Panflex outfit consists of three pieces. These are the Panflex head, Zeiss double cable release, 1X extension tube, and Zeiss single cable release. The Panflex allows reflex viewing through the lens with macro photography. There is also an accessory Zeiss 115mm Panflex Tessar that has been made specifically for this unit to allow its use as a portrait camera. Any lens with a Contax mount can be used with the Panflex, providing a great variety of macro photography options. One of the most remarkable things about the Panflex is not visible from the outside. The long viewing tube contains a very large and long prism to carry the image from the focusing screen to the eyepiece. And the focusing screen is actually a lens. The result of this extremely difficult to fabricate unique optical combination is unique sharpness, clarity and contrast of view through the unit. This Panflex comes in its original velvet lined case which is in perfect original condition. Price $1775
