Well the G2 isn't a competitor as a "pro" camera, but it sure is for
Ams...Leica quality images without the work... ;-)

Seriously, though, can you imagine how well those Zeiss G lenses will
sell in M mounts? I'd like THAT license to print money. How much is the
21 2.8 T* Biogon? $1298? Compared to about $2400 for the Leica M 21 ASPH

Does it means that Kyocera will stop the Contax G line ?

I don't see Zeiss making lenses compatible with the Leica M, the Contax 
G main competitor.

Even if we know they are not competitor.
