Since 1932 the name CONTAX has set the benchmark for high end Zeiss quality. The Zeiss CONTAX series of rangefinder and SLR camera's were considered some of the finest in the world. Our unique set of 11 lenses come from the AE lens series introduced in 1975 when Zeiss partnered with Japanese camera manufacturer Yashica on the CONTAX / Yashica C/Y system. 

While Zeiss lenses are known for their sharpness and contrast, these CONTAX lenses offer the classic Zeiss look without being overly harsh or as clinical as modern design offerings. They have a lovely organic character that will make your images standout from the crowd.

These lenses share a lot of design influence with the legendary Zeiss High Speed T1.3 or "Super Speed" lenses which also were released in 1975 in their first iteration as the "B-Speeds". In fact our kit features the very rare 55mm f1.2 Anniversary design (of which only 1000 were made) as well as the 85mm f1.2 Anniversary design (of which only 1500 were made).  

This set of "Full Frame Super Speeds" is the biggest and most unique rehoused set of Zeiss CONTAX in Australia.
