I have only the four most common (read: least expensive) lenses for the 
Contax. For B&W, I prefer
Konica, Canon, Leica, and Bessa rangefinders. I get better results from them, 
and I like the accuracy and predictability of manual focus."

Thanks for the input Jeffery. I shoot mostly chromes and some color print 
film with my G1 but I am curious, why do you feel the Zeiss lenses for the 
Contax G don't give as good of results in B&W?
