    I have 2 G2 bodies, and I love them.

    The article about 'how to use the G2 correctly' is spot on - I find the G2 very well thought through, you just have to understand it.

    I don't agree with what someone said before - the camera is just a box holding darkness in and the film flat.
    I went through a lot of cameras until I finally found the ones I was most comfortable with. I found it in my G2 and the RTS III, which have improved my photography because I use them much more intuitively than any camera before.
    This of course is only my opinion and my experience!

    Using G2 Focus Correctly
    Dear Tom,

    Not really. When you're used to cameras that focus how and when you want, e.g. Leica M-series, there's limited incentive to piddle about doing what the camera wants you to, the way it wants you to. Besides, the finder will still steam up.

    Cheers,

    None. Maybe this tells you which system is worth more, to more people. And I don't believe it's just snob value.

    I'd far rather have a Voigtlander Bessa than a Contax G2.

    Of course everyone's opinions vary. But you did ask...

    Cheers,

    Now that you are living the La Dolce Vita in France I thought you may have an old leica or two you would let go really cheap, you know, just to give you some more cupboard space.

    Well, now that you mention it, I am getting rid of two M2 Leicas...

    Of cours there's a premium for their history (me!)

    So a quid for the history and a tenner for an M2?

    I had a bigger problem with the filter on my 45mm steaming up at Iguazu Falls than I did with the viewfinder. Roger, you must just be sweaty in addition to passionate
