Contax G1 is the choice I'm currently exploring. The 45/2 Planar T* is a winner for sure. My camera and 45/2 cost me about $300. Lenses run about $200-250 each for the common 28-35-45-90 lenses, $500+ for the 21mm, $1000+ for the 16mm. I do appreciate having a compact RF that focuses to 0.5m minimum with the 45mm. It has full manual exposure plus auto exposure, 16sec-1/2000.

In the shot of the house, I can tell the screws in the doorbell button are phillips head - sharp enough for me!
The question is can you surrender yourself to a compact AF camera? I'm coping just fine - its a bit of a break chasing the kids indoors and actually being able to keep up.
