Zeiss Contax Forum for the classic Zeiss Contax I, II, III, IIa, IIIa , G series, and if you want to push it, the nice Contax point and shoots. Some spill over from the Kievs, the Soviet copy of the Contax II/III can also be expected. Plus the ONLY production camera ever made in classic Zeiss Contax Rangefinder mount WITH TTL metering ... the Voigtlander Bessa R2C.

This link no longer works, so maybe we can fix it or get rid of this sticky and make the top of the board a little more clean?

Peter Dechert passed away a few weeks ago. Maybe that's the reason the site no longer works.

I've got a copy, and probably of several of Peter's other documents also. If Stephen would like to host it here I can forward it on to him or whoever it needs to go to.
