Created through the combination of Porsche design skills, Yashica electronics technology and Carl Zeiss precision optics, the Contax Real Time System (RTS) is the result of a rare combination of talents. Real Time photography is a concept created to meet the needs of the working professional and advanced amateur as well.

The Zeiss interchangeable lenses with Contax/Yashica mount cover the focal length range from 15 to 1000mm, all providing extra-high speed for most convenient application even in adverse light situations. All these lenses offer to the photographer the traditional Zeiss quality and performance standards.

Thanks to the flange focal distance of 45.5mm, Contax/Yashica mount lenses can be easily adapted to digital SLR (except for Nikon) and mirrorless cameras.
