Last holiday my Contax ST went bust on me. Up to then it was my hiking camera and RTSlll my studio-camera. It has been send from Holland to Germany for a quote on repaircosts and the cost for repair were estimatedat a little short of 300 euro. Before going on holiday I was already contemplating swapping the ST, which I bought for 350 euro, for an Contax Aria, which is better for hiking (lighter) and available for round and about the same amount of money. Now here is my dillema. It is probably more economical the buy an Aria and not bother with repairing the ST. In that case the ST will be destroyed in Germany. It would only create extra shippingcost to have it send back unrepaired. And that's where the pain is, I feel a bit guilty about having a nice (allthough functionally challenged) camera of rather (in)famous pedegry destroyed, as it is not beyond repair. What would you do in this situation?
