Zeiss-Opton 50mm f3.5 Coated Postwar Tessar Contax Lens with Front Cap

The postwar coated 50mm f3.5 Tessar lens is the sharpest lens ever made for the Contax. While it was made after the war and was made for use with the Contax IIa or Contax IIIa it will fit and work perfectly on the Contax 1, Contax II and Contax III. This lens began life as the Makro-Tessar and then was later put into a modern Contax chrome rigid lens mount. It is ideal for close up up photography. It is corrected completely for all optical aberrations, is color corrected (called an APO lens today), and is super sharp.. The negatives this lens produces can be very greatly enlarged..

This lens has been completely overhauled here and is in absolutely MINT optical condition. It also comes with a Zeiss front cap. It comes with a one year guarantee.

This lens is in exceptional exterior cosmetic condition showing only the most minimal storage marks. These marks show that this lens has not been used much. It comes with genuine Carl Zeiss black enamel front and rear caps that are in wonderful condition. The lens surfaces are optically mint. This lens has also been completely overhauled here and comes with a one year guarantee. .

The serial number of this lens is 1004562..

This lens has had exceptionally gentle care for all of its extremely long life. The only wear I can see is some slight top edge wear due to the installation and removal of the lens cap.


The optics are perfect mint quality..

This lens has been overhauled and completely cleaned and properly lubricated.
