Contax Carl Zeiss Planar T f1.7/50mm, caps, pouch, working, test shots, EXC++. The revival of the Contax name (technically capitalised as'CONTAX') through a cooperative arrangement between Zeiss and Yashica began with the 1975 launch of the electronically sophisticated Contax RTS, the first of a line of quality SLRs culminating in the RXII in 2002, and finally ending with the then owner Kyocera's 2005 decision to cease all camera/lens production. The new C/Y mount for the RTS required a range of top quality lenses, initially made in Germany but later under licence in Japan.

All Carl Zeiss lenses for the C/Y mount were manual focus and most featured the flare-reducing T lens coating. 6330796, is a manual focus f1.7/50mm standard prime lens, Contax/Yashica bayonet mount, focusing 0.6m - infinity. The lens is supplied with its original front cap and a third-party rear cap. External and internal optical surfaces are clean and clear, no scratches, fungus or haze.

Focusing action is on the loose side, diaphragm blades are pristine. Unedited photos 9-12 were taken with this lens mounted via an adapter on my Canon EOS 20D (photo 8, camera and adapter not included in this listing). Cosmetically, the lens is in excellent condition. Note that the sprung locking pins on the front lens cap are missing , although the cap fits well without them. I provide excellent, secure packaging using new materials, with printed address and return labels. This is a FIVE STAR service!
