Original price Contax RTS 2


New Member
Help!!!!!! Can anyone tell me the original RRP of a RTS 2 in the late 80's...body plus 1.4 50mm T...many thanks


Hi Stuart. I bought my RTS-II in 1989 for 899.99 CAN$ (~645 USD). The P50/1.4 was, if my memory is correct, around 250 CAD at the time but I bought it earlier (~ 150 USD). Back then I was just a student, so this was enormously expensive, but nevertheless about one-third the price of a comparable Leica outfit... I remember causing a sensation at the University when I showed off with my new camera. The trend among students was then a Nikon FM-2 with a 50/1.8. *nostalgia*
