The Late, Lamented & Phenomenal, Contax G2.
Forget the G1 - GET THE G2 !

The G2 has both an active & a passive AF system. It can

Don't get me wrong, the AF, doesn't always work, not
locking on to the side of a painted car & only having 1
focus point, can be annoying.
Finally, you must remember that the camera uses an
averaging meter pattern. In this day, A Matrix metering
system would be much more advantageous.
As it is, you have to center your subject, in the finder with the subject
to get an accurate reading, use the AE lock, than re-compose & shoot.
Even with these drawbacks the G2, is phenomenal.
Unlike anything else out there & beyond anything Leica,
has ever produced.
As for lenses, the 28 mm & 21 mm Biogons are unique in the way
they record an image. Get the 28 & 45 mm lens combination,
FORGET THE 35 mm !
You won't be sorry.
