    I've had four contax bodies and nothing but bad experience with the system overall. The lenses were great. The bodies gave a never ending set of problems.

    I would not touch the system.

    One busted rewind mechanism. One shutter which kept dying sporadically and one dead meter. My Aria had no problems.

    The repairs were expensive. The cameras were expensive and the parts were hard to find.

    I don't translate my experience with 4 cameras to the system overall. When they work, they're great. When they don't, it's like pulling teeth.
