hi loose gravel - my 35mm camera is a contax aria. i love it. it did take me sometime to get use to the shutter dial being on the left side of the viewfinder (i was shooting with canon manual cameras before). i also like the zeiss t* lenses too. very sharp with good color and contrast. the only down side is i can't shot infrared film with the aria body.
enjoy your new system - it's a good one
