Great camera for quality landscapes or studio images. ISO usable from 25 to 100 only before noise starts to creep in. Dynamic range excellent also. Preview screen on the back hopeless compared with what is currently available. No use for sports photography - autofocus isn't fast enough. Problems: Autofocus a bit iffy sometimes, and battery life issues solved with 2600 AA rechargeables.

The Contax N Digital is different than all other DSLR cameras. I have used Nikon and Fuji DSLR as well. However non of them makes a N Digital picture and gives a sentimental feeling like it does. This camera is like a wild horse. If you know how to use it despite of all it's mechanical disadvantages, you will have an excellent pictures. If you don't know how to use it, you will be crying out loud and full of complains. I love pictures that this camera gives, so I don't have any complains. : ) ...

What a disappointment this camera is! It's built around the Contax N with the same controls, shape, size etc. -soundly constructed and for Contax users, the answer to a prayer until you view the results. Even with the wonderful lenses available for this camera the output is poor compared to a higher megapixel point-and-shoot like the Olympus 8080. What's worse is that one is now stuck with Contax and, until someone makes a decent camera which will fit the lenses, it's an expensive cul-de-sac. ...

I bought this camera new a couple of months ago. The very last few left on the market. I use a N1 and a 645 so it is logical to buy the ND to complete the system. This camera IMO is the best digital camera regardless of price. The controls are so nicly layout and the build quality is first class. The CZ lens are simply stunning. I had a Canon 10D and a Nikon D70 with L lens and AFS ED lens in the past and they just did not satisfied my needs. Having said that, The Contax is hopeless if you ...

Considering this camera has two year old technology and being the 1st full frame dSLR, it is a great camera even in today standard for image quality. You cannot expect to use it to shoot fast action sport as Contax's market is more for artists. It is a great gear if you like Carl Zeiss lenses, and image quality is superb when you shoot RAW format and develop in CS. Problems: useable ISO from 25-200. Small buffer size.

Excellent camera for studio work. Pros: low iso, image quality, color, Dynamic Range, 250 flash sync, control layout, changing setting is very fast, fantstic Contax build quality and most of all... Zeiss Glass (plus you can use all of the 645 lenses) Problems: long exposures (over a second) are worthless, noise in images with iso over 200.
