    Contax G2 image gallery

    For most part of today I've been trying to find a Contax G2 image gallery or various sites that show some impressive images taken with the G2 and the quality of prints at various sizes.

    I'd be grateful for some links to review.
    Thanks for your help.

    I'll testify to mindboggling image quality from the G2 system in almost any circumstance. It's only weakness is that close up, at maximum apertures, and the 90mm lens, it is harder to get exact focus where I want it. This is a hair splitting observation, due in large part to me and my limitations as a camera operator.

    Shooting in low light, close to the subject, with a 90 mm lens, I could not place the precise focus with the G2 as well as I can with a Leica.

    For all other circumstances, the G2 was easier for me to use. It is a wonderful camera.

    You might look at a Konica Hexar RF, as well.

    cheers

    Are there any well known photographers that use the Contax G2 professionally?

    Thank you Fintan, df & Morten! The links are great. I've noticed many out of focus images shot with the Contax G2 and am quietly hoping it's more due to pilot error rather than lack of equipment quality.

    Does anyone know of any famous photographers that have used the G2 for documentary work???

    Nicole,

    I have recently come acros a website explaining that this was due to "pilot error". The site explained that the G2's manual actually explain the use of the auto focus in detail, but apperently not a lot of peolpe read it thoroughly. I will try to find the URL again. I don't have a G2 allthough I would love to...

    I've been looking at the G2 as well. As much as I've been trying to pull away from 35mm, I just really like the camera. As for famous photographers, I know Alex Webb uses one.

    Nicole,

    I can't tell you much about the camera, but there is one for sale at rangefinderforum.com and it looks like a pretty great price.

    Hmmm, how come there are many Contax G1 & G2's for sale but not many Leica M6's??? Does that send a message?
