The Zeiss Ikon Contarex system was at its time the absolute cream top of the german 35mm SLR production, not equalled in its technical refinement, workmanship and also: Its price.
It was not a coincidence that the name Contarex derived from the latin word "rex" (king). Its engineers had only one limit: Perfection.
Here at offer from this system:
The excellent superwideangle Biogon 4,5/21mm, filter size B56. Minimum focusing distance is 50 cm. Perfect manufacturing quality and optical performance, also under nowadays standards.
Lens has an extremely early number dating to 1955-57, no. 1856611.
Nevertheless, Contarex instruction was only in 1958, and camera sale began in 1960. According to the literature, production of Contarex Biogon 21mm began in 1958/59 with number 2621511.
