I'm a Contax RTS III user my self.  It's a little bit of a "camera guy"
camera, but I've learned to love it.  The RTS III uses Zeiss lenses, and the
stable includes a 100/2 Planar, a 135/2 well as a 16/2.8
fisheye...and a whole slew of quite fast, sharp and nice bokeh lenses.  It's
like comparing a Ferrari BB512 and a Porsche 550 Spyder...some days I want
to shoot with the RTS III, and some days I want to shoot with the M6.
Either one is equally as enjoyable, and can produce exceptional results.
