Jan, I had the N1 (as well as some of their compacts). I also prefer the
analog controls to anything menu driven. Some of that is personal preference
and experience, of course. In that one in fact there were multiple ways of
achieving the same adjustment (e.g. exposure compensation). You could have
as simple or sophisticated control as you wanted. The lenses were large
though and I suspect that the autofocus motors were marginal in some.
One of mine went to Kyocera in Japan after the demise of the product range.
To their credit, they repaired it no charge though, although not a warranty

I second this George. Contax had it right in their N1 and 645 system by
offering a shutter speed and aperture ring AND full AF on the lenses.

From: Lottermoser George <> i so dislike not having an
aperture ring and not having a shutter speed dial being forced to look in a
finder or on a screen to see these two basics just makes no sense to me Fond
