Like all my other G items up for sale at the moment, this lens had light use in the mid 2000s and was stored in it’s original box since then. It comes with the original soft bag which was never used and the guarantee documents etc. It’s in almost mint condition I’d say. However, annoyingly, I find the lens cap is missing, although it has always had a protection filter in place. I’m also including the excellent metal lens hood with this one. I expect a replacement cap is easily found. Not included in the sale are the 3 other lenses in the last picture, but you can see them in my other listings.
I believe, the G2 camera represents the pinnacle in range finder film camera design and seems, finally, to be achieving some of the recognition it deserves, but still only as a ‘cult status’ camera. Build quality is stunning, the functionality is spot on, with everything you really need and nothing you don’t, and, of course, the lenses are some of the best ever made. And best of all, it’s still an absolute bargain even with the increasing prices of the last few years. The lenses are just stupid-cheap, particularly when you compare them to their only real competitors from Leica which come at anything up to 10x the price. And….the Contax G lenses come with the effective autofocus system that the Leicas lack. The day that a manufacturer brings out a 50MB digital version of this camera system I will, literally, cry with joy.
Overseas bidders and people with less than 10 feedback please contact me before bidding. I’ll check the rates for international posting wherever you are. Please don’t bother with scams; I’ve heard them all before so you’ll be wasting your own time as well as mine. I require PayPal payment within 24 hours of the auction ending or I offer the item to the 2nd bidder or relist.
