The Contax 645 has, sadly, been long gone from the photography world as a "new" camera. However, from the looks of the photos, it may indeed be New (never used so in original condition) and may have in fact been sent to Kyocera for a check-up. Pity they stopped making the camera. To me, it was one of the best 645 cameras on the market.
