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.

Genuine 'Jena'?

This camera looks exactly like all the other supposedly genuine Jenas I've seen on eBay, all of which have a 'Carl Zeiss Jena' logo, which this seller appears to think marks it as a Kiev fake. Perhaps the seller is just rather ill-informed - very surprising for a dealer.

The bidders (I wasn't one of them!) obviously also believe it is a real one. Do the experts here agree?

From his description I understand he says the camera is a fake but the lens is likely a real one.
