For sale is my Contax Aria, which I have owned since new, and two fantastic lenses. The Aria has seen maybe 20 rolls of film and is conservatively in Mint- condition. Viewfinder clean and super clear, all functions working as new. Looks pristine. Comes complete with box.

If you haven't used an Aria you're in for a treat. So small with such a fantastic might be my favorite manual focus SLR ever. Great camera.

Keep in mind the following lenses, in addition to working great on the Aria, also are fantastic adapted lenses with m4/3, NEX and other mounts, including the X-Pro1.

Contax Carl Zeiss 50mm f1.7 MM lens. An incredible lens in superb condition. One of the finest 50s made. Glass clean and clear. Focus and apertures silky smooth and clicks are nice an positive.

Contax Carl Zeiss 135/2.8 lens. A great portrait and short telephoto sports lens. As new, used literally once. Comes with box.

I am going to miss this set but I'd rather have it go to someone who will enjoy it rather than have it just sitting here.

Aria: $250
50/1.7 Lens: $250
135/2.8 Lens: $225
