Subject: RE: [Leica] Ansel Adams Turns 100

I thought AA was a contax RF man.  In his book "Examples: The Making of 40
Photographs", he includes a photo he took of Stieglitz (I think) were he
goes into detail about using Contax RF cameras.  He did write that the Leica
was a fine camera, but that he preferred the Contax.  Did he switch to
Leicas at some other point in his career?  This was a fascinating book BTW.
Well worth reading.
