Here is a picture of the Contina III outfit, the camera is shown here fitted with the Pantar 30mm f/4 wide-angle lens. The Pantar 45mm f/2.8 standard lens, and 75mm f/4 lens are clipped into the bases of their bubble cases, and you can see the original accessory wide-angle and telephoto viewfinders.

This camera uses the same Pantar lenses as the Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Prima.
