I'm curious because I'm contemplating this option. I have a Leica so I can go MF too but this seems like a very good choice. I figure that I have 4 options: -G1 (green sticker) / G2 + 21mm f2.8 -ZM 21mm f2.8 -CV 21mm f4.0 -Leica 21mm f3.4 Super Angulon Pros/cons for each option but I'm leaning on going Contax G or ZM. I'd prefer a S.A. but the price for the finder and hood adds up (well they all need finders...) and the CV is a bit slow. 1. How is MF with this thing. It's scale focus, I know, but is it usually OK? I'm not sure how important MF is to me, but having the option is important. 2. How is the G's external viewfinder?
