I dearly love using my Contax cameras but I think I have to agree with you on that note. After spending time with my Contax II, pulling out my little Leica II is just like a nice, simple, breath of fresh air sometimes. Both are wonderful designs in their own ways. I am not certain who was responsible for designing the original Contax cameras but Oskar Barnack certainly came up with a terrific little camera.
