Lens for lens, this guy is partially right. But he is also way off. As an
overall system, Leica still shines heads and shoulders above the rest.
Contax is the only thing close, and the big difference for me is the color
they render on film. I prefer Leica. (Wish I preferred Contax, but then
they have too limited a lens selection - for me).
