View Full Version : I'd like to buy a Contax G kit

Hello everyone !

I'm a french photography fan and until recently, I had only used SLR's (Nikon). My girlfriend owns a Zeiss Ikon Contessamat (60's) and I love using it now, except that the optical quality is average I think. When I see the quality you get with modern RF Cameras, I have to buy one. But I don't have enough money for a Leica therefore, I 'd like to but a G2 (mostly for optical quality).

However, some say manual focus is a bit tricky on this model...
Can anyone tell me more about it as I 'll use manual a lot 'cause I love taking street photos !

Thanks a lot for your help !;)
