I'm Contax SLR, and G user. I consider myself in LUG to get some idea of the M impact! I would go for the Contax N1. It's not because I'm the Contax user -but because you are Leica -M user. Even though other brands might have so fascinating features, but you deserve a great optic. N1 may not be a fragship body but why would you care? Also, your need for AF SLR is to shoot children, quick portraits and fashion shows. I don't understand why you need fisheye or 28 PC distagon for such works. Just a thought from Contax SLR (645, Manual focus and current N1) and G (1/2) user. > I am a user of Leica M.
