    I have G2, N1 and 645 with all lenses.
    Both cameras and lenses are very good. Presently the film equipment is so inexpensive that one can experiment with it as much as he/she wants.

    I have used a 167MT for some years for air photography. It is a little gem in that role. It's quick and (so far) reliable. The glass goes without saying. There is less mirror/shutter shock than any other SLR I have used, but I don't really like it on the ground because it is rather noisy. That might not bother some and the only other sin it shows is that the batteries just stop, with no warning that they are weakening.

    What is the battery life like on your 167MT?

    Maybe 45-50, 36 exp films. You would probably get more on the ground, where it's warmer, but I am often working in sub zero conditions. I tend to change batteries around every 2 flights (approx 30 films) just to be sure, then get the rest of the life out of them in my PDA and an assortment of TV, video and projector remote controls.

    I´ve been using several Contax SLR´s since 1992, including 167MT, RX, AX & Aria. They are all excellent cameras in every respect. Ergonomy and build quality is as good as it can be. AX is a quite big camera of course, and will not be ideal for small hands. Conversely, Aria might be somewhat smaller than optimal for big male hands. I find the Aria difficult to handle when using heavy lenses and/or heavy shoe mount flash. I will recommend Aria for travel/documentary when shooting in available light with light/moderate weight lenses. When using the Aria together with the "pancake" Tessar 2,8/45 the whole kit is only a tad bigger/heavier than the G2 with same focal length.

    I have 2 Contax RTSII cameras, one of them has a long roll motor back. I have been using them since the early 1990s, they are excellent cameras.

    I also have an RTSIII and it is an excellent camera, as well.

    I did much better than 40 rolls on a set of batteries in the 167, but then I was using the P5 battery holder with it, that lets you use AA instead of AAA batteries, and as previously noted, I wasn't shooting out the back of an airplane at 10,000 feet. If you want a 167mt, find one that has the P5 battery holder. It also serves as a nice vertical grip, balances the camera better, and centers the tripod socket on the lens axis. Why they ever put the tripod socket out at the end like that on the original stock baseplate is beyond me.
