Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super (type 10.1271)

A well-engineered, and beautifully finished leaf-shutter SLR camera from Zeiss Ikon. This model was manufactured from 1959 to 1962.

The Contaflex Super is much like the earlier Contaflex Prima, except this model has a coupled meter, and it has an interchangeable, better quality Tessar lens.

Contaflex Super

Like all the Contaflex models with interchangable lenses, the rear component stays fixed behind the shutter and only the front component was changable.

A Pro-Tessar 35mm f/4 wide-angle and a Pro-Tessar 85mm f/4 telephoto were available to fit this camera.
