The GL Optics Re-Housed Contarex primes for cinema applications. Originally made for the Zeiss Contarex 35mm SLR. These Contarexes were made as Zeiss’ professional-line of lenses throughout the early 1960’s. With great close focus and minimal chromatic aberration, the Contarex lenses have a natural vintage flare and milkiness. While still retaining the easily-recognisable Zeiss hue.
Re-housed by GL Optics (mark V rehousing), with no external mechanical breathing, these lenses are compact, ergonomic and cinema ready.

  • 50mm Contarex T2.1
  • 85mm Contarex T2.1
