Contax G2 with 45mm f2 Planar
The Contax G2 looks like a rangefinder camera, but it doesn't have a true optical rangefinder. Instead, it has an autofocus system that makes it one of the the best "point and shoot" cameras you can buy. Now, some of you Contax folks are probably sharpening your pitchforks right now, but I assure you that I mean "point and shoot" in the best way possible. The G2 has full manual or automatic exposure controls, autowind and rewind, an excellent light meter, and some of the best lenses ever made- including the 45mm f2 Carl Zeiss Planar lens that comes with it. The autofocus is pretty quick, too. But if you're looking for a camera that you can focus manually, this probably isn't the place to look: you can do it, using the electronic indicators, but without visual feedback it's not the camera's strongest feature. Anyway, that's my speech about the G2. This one's in very nice shape overall, with one notable ding on the film door that does not affect function in any way. LCD panels are all good; the included lens has very minor internal dust, no haze or fungus. Also included: a body cap and rear lens cap.
