Collection: Contax/Yashica

The Contax / Yashica mount is a collaboration between Carl Zeiss and Yashica that happened after Yashica purchased the rights to the Contax name in 1975. The goal was to merge Zeiss’s excellent lens design with Yashica’s electronics and manufactering process with a single mount. This came only a few years after Leica began collaborating with Minolta. Both Yashica and Contax would produce cameras and lenses for this new mount, with Yashica targeting consumers and Contax aiming at professionals.
