Werra olive with Tessar 50mm F 2.8

Sr. NR.: 103629

With sun hood, neck strap and lens cap.

This is a camera in a nice condition, with some traces of use. See small dent on the bottom.

Fully working.

It has been tested and its works pretty nice.

Aperture times sound acurrate, working very good.

Shutter and the 8 aperture blades are clean and working fine.

The viewfinder has some dust particles inside, still aceptable sight.

The lens has no fungus or scratches, very nice condition. As an used lens may have micro dust particles inside.

I would say that this is a camera in a great working condition.


About Werra

Werra cameras were made in Eastern Germany, from 1954 to 1968 by Carl Zeiss Jena.

Werra is the name for a small river close to the production factory.

Fixed lens 50mm F2.8

All the controls are located around the lens. On the top plate we have only the shutter release button.

The most unique feature of this camera is the covered ring around the lens barrel. Twisting the ring cocks the shutter and advanced the film in one motion.
