I'd rule out the Contax G2. I had a G1 and it never focused properly. Admittedly the odds of this happening are not great, but your will be completely dependent on it focusing correctly unlike an SLR where you can usually see the focus.

They were expensive cameras and nicely built but the older they get the more likely they are to develop problems.

Wedding are not the place to take chances.

You are right about the G1. I had both G1 & 2. G2 has a completely different and better AF system, But neither camera is a device to try out first time at a mission critical wedding.
