1938 Leica and Zeiss Prices from the American camera dealer Burke & James
Comparing a Leica III with 50/2 Summar to a Contax II with 50/2 Sonnar, the Contax was only $20 more expensive. The fancy Contax III with built in meter and super speed 50/1.5, however, was a whopping $129 more at the princely sum of $298!
