and I follow the Contax pretty closely as I use it a lot, they are more than likely NOT going to be coming up with anything new for the G2. Also, I have heard that due to the AF system, that anything faster would more than likely infringe on the AF windows that are needed for finding the distance via the rangefinder. that being said, I wouldn't trade my G2 gear for Leica for what I shoot, or for quality of lenses!
