My Contax G2 Rangefinder

Hopefully one day Contax will come into production again.
Right now there's only one digital Rangefinder on the market, the Epson RD-1.
Will Nikon or Leica ever make a digital rangefinder?
Or are rangefinders really a thing of the past?

Did people realise that the image quality from rangefinders are better than dSLRs with 12mp?

Hong Kong Disneyland

These were taken at the Hong Kong Disneyland with Panasonic's LX1.

A closer look at Ricoh GR Digital's Mode Dial

The symbols/markings on the mode are made of metal, with diamond cut. On top, there's a unlock button which you must depress between changing mode. Hmmm, very thoughtful indeed.

Purchased Ricoh GR Digital today.

Excellent construction. Magnesium alloy body, sturdy, and compact. It reminds me of GR1s that I used several years.
