Blake is a technical person at Contax in NJ but I would hardly call him the
father of the G2.

I meant Zeiss Contax lenses. That is, actually confirmed to me by Blake
Ziegler, the father of the Contax G2, and head honcho at Contax USA. All
Contax G and SLR lenses are "neutral" by his definition, and Leica is
warmer. I agree with him, but for me Leica is neutral and Zeiss is blue. 

All depends on what one considers neutral. :-)
