This is a somewhat exploratory post since I'm thinking about it flexibly. Two 35mm RF systems is more than I can use sensibly, and I'd like to narrow down to the Contax outfit by adding a modern R2C body, preferably by trading away some of the Leica-mount equipment I'm not really using.

I have a 75/2.5 Color-Heliar in essentially-new condition, silver with hood and caps---I don't think I kept the packaging, but I'll look. This lens and the R2C have similar list prices at CameraQuest, so I'm thinking of something close to a straight trade.

Some photos from the lens are at https://www.flickr.com/search/?w=674...q=color-heliar. It's a good little portrait lens and has done particularly well for me in high-contrast light.

Any R2Cs looking for a home?

Thanks
