Aria is very late in the sequence, so newer... Made more recently, and made with more recent technology. It's also small, light, and does everything so very nicely.

I say, if it's one Contax, it's the Aria.

That said, the 167MT is a good effective body. Some say there's an internal battery or capacitor that kills the LCD when it goes; I can't confirm that. Mine work fine. As an inexpensive way to get started in Contax, no problem.

Then the next question is lenses. They are great.
