    As some of you may know, i recently got a Zeiss Ikon Contaflex Super,
    Having looked into it, i have decided that it would be good to buy a new lens for it (The one it has now is a Tessar 2,8/50) Does anyone know which lens i should buy, and where i could buy it from?
    I Should add that the shop needs to send to England :)
    Thanks!

    I think cp2 Zeiss lenses will be good to buy, they are versatile lenses but to have this lenses you need to have I mattebox and a bunch of new filters in your cam.

    Excellent link.

    BTW, while searching for lenses be careful not to confuse "Contaflex" with "Contarex". Zeiss made both lines, but they are rather different designs and the lenses are not interchangeable between the two.

    Also, avoid any of the Contaflex lenses marked "Pantar" as they will not fit
    your camera model.
