Contax 159 MM focusing screens

To all of my fellow contax users:

Do any of you know where I can get a replacement focusing screen for my Contax 159 MM. I am looking for the standard FT-4 screen. Mine was damaged and I need to replace it.

If any one knows, please help me.

Probably you can get it from B&H... maybe HEH

(isn't there a way to answer off-line?)

I got my 2nd 159MM with standard screen, I changed
it to sectioned matte... but I think I didn't buy
the screen, just exchenged 1st (unrepairable) 159
and the 2nd one. So I have one standard screen
unused, attached in the unused (paper weight) one.
If you would send me your damaged one, I can send
you mine... well, if your damaged one can still
be mounted on my paperweight camera, and if mine
is not considered as "damaged"... 8)

Dear Muchan,

B&H does not have the focusing screens for the 159 MM and neither does KEH.

If you have a screen, I would be willing to buy yours.

I am very curious about how you changed your screen. Temporarily removing my focusing screen for dusting is what caused the damage. I had trouble reinstalling it and it got damaged. How did you replace yours? Did you send it to contax?

In general: if anyone has the original FT-4 screen for the contax 159 MM, I am willing to buy it. I live in the Los Angeles area. Also if anyone knows where I can get one new or from old stock, please let me know.

Please contact me at eadut@concentric.net

Thank You, Eitan Adut

Hi contax 35mm SLR users, does anyone know wether there is/has been a Beattie Intenscreen (like Hassy/Minolta Acute Matte D) for Contax bodies other then RTSIII
