We Still Need A Contax G2 Digital
I learned photography on totally manual film cameras. For a long time I used and loved the Contax line. Manual focus but Zeiss glass. My favorite camera of all was the Contax G2. Beautiful build, auto focus, superb handling, unobtrusive, and those wonderful little Zeiss lenses. I am still looking for a replacement in digital. No, I cannot afford a Leica. For those who remember, the G2 was a strong competitor to the Leica--at an affordable price. Amazing images from the little G2. You could also buy a Hasselblad X-Pan back then. No, Fujifilm is not there yet. Getting close, maybe. Zeiss Ikon Digital, where are you?
