I am interested in selling my silver Contax G2 rangefinder with three Zeiss lenses. This kit has served me well over the years from Botswana to Burma and back again but I have to face facts: I've gone digital for good.

If you are interested in the following, please let me know.

  • Contax G2 Body with original packaging and manuals.
  • 21mm f/2.8 Biogon T* Zeiss lens with viewfinder attachment (mounts in hotshoe) in original leather lens box.
  • 28mm f/2.8 Biogon T* Zeiss lens. Comes in a leather Contax pouch.
  • 90mm f/2.8 Sonnar T* Zeiss lens with Contax CG-3 lens hood. Both in original packaging.
  • All lenses come with Contax brand low-dispersion UV filters.

The body shows a few cosmetic-only abrasions you would expect from it having served as my daily shooter for several years but works flawlessly. The viewfinder attachment for the 21mm has a small ding on the top but is also perfectly functional. The camera has fresh batteries after having spent the last 2 years in storage in a cool, dry place. While I have not had it serviced professionally recently, I have just shot a test roll and it seems to be up to its well-proven tack-sharp tricks.

I am asking $1725 for everything together.

Seems a shame to be selling such good camera.
I already own a couple of Zeiss lenses but I would be interested in a wide angle, preferably the 28.
I hope your sale goes well.

Just to be clear, the 28mm Zeiss lens is for a Contax G-mount. If you have a Leica body, the lens will not fit, I imagine. Let me know if you are still interested and how much you would be willing to pay for the 28mm.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I have a G1 frame. I am only interested in a wide angle, as already have a 45mm and a 90mm.
If you wish to sell a lens separately, I would be much happier if you would price it.
Thanking you

I have the set up for sale on eBay at the moment so until that closes in a day or so I will not know if I can even sell the 28mm separately. If I did it would be around $500.

Hi,

I'm interested in the G2 and the 21mm lens. If you're willing to sell them separately from your kit, please let me know. Thanks!

Best,

Hi Ting-Li,

Yes, I would be willing to do that. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I somehow missed your post. For the G2 and the 21mm I would be looking for around $1000. Let me know if you are still interested.
