Lets hope the new Contax G2 has a system whereupon pressing the button the
shutter fires instantly instead of waiting for the lens to catch up with
the focusing.Other than that it seemed a lovely camera.

Canon emailed me to say that they have no planns for a rangefinder
camera.Sad but true,so lets hope Nikon come up with something.Call me a
philistine or an impatient idiot but I cannot cope with trying to reload an
M6 quickly.
