CONTAX Aria Limited Edition w/Carl Zeiss Tessar 45 2.8

Regular price €450.00

Weighing only 460 grams, the Contax Aria can be classified as a compact 35mm SLR. The relatively lighter weight makes it a convenient choice for frequent shooting although the lighter weight trade off does not sacrifice heft. The Aria’s well-designed body feels solid in the hand. The easy to reach buttons and switches score points too.

The metering is also one of its main selling points. It offers manual, aperture and shutter priority metering with its Automatic Exposure feature. Its easy to read user interface/LCD display, motorized film advance and rewind, as well as DX-coding capabilities makes the camera a great choice for an SLR workhorse as it can work smoothly on both professional and beginner hands.

This particular model is a Limited edition for the Contax 70th Anniversary equipped with the Carl Zeiss 100th Anniversary Tessar 45mm 2.8 lens.
