The Contax T2 is a beautiful compact high-end point and shoot film camera. It is extremely well built with a very sharp Zeiss f2.8 lens and consequently prices have gone through the roof for it. I blame Bellamy Hunt at Japan Camera Hunter for its popularization. Autofocus is good, not up to the standards of modern digital point and shoots, but good enough for most kinds of street shooting in favourable light. There is a built in flash for the times when you need it and manually selectable f-stops. The deal killer for me was that you could not manually select f2.8, and as a result I ended up just leaving it on auto all the time. This of course begs the question of if you are going to leave it on auto all the time then what is the point of having an expensive point and shoot camera? You can do that with a Nikon L35AF for $10 and get pretty close to the same thing. If I am going to go to the trouble and expense of shooting film then I want to have full control over it, so although it is a beautiful camera, it falls into a very specific niche.
