    Leica M3 with 35 mm Summicron:
    - better quality,
    - faster shooting,
    - 35 mm film (smaller + 36 exposures per roll)

    Just get an old leather case to keep the Leica "clean & pristine".

    But I said 35 Summaron, which is probably not as good as the 35 2.8 biogon on the Contax

    Take the Leica and whatever lenses fit in a small bag. Go for the personal. Forget about the tourist shots. Buy some postcards & save time & money.

    Leave the digital at home. Touristy shots? Really? Get postcards or use your cell phone for those "look where I was" shots. Otherwise bring the Contax if the M3 is too nice to use. Then when you get home sell the M3 and get a user one so you'll use it from now on.
