"RE: educate me please Contax G1"
Here is a good article on the G1. http://www.markusehrenfried.de/photography/thecontaxgsystem.htmlI would think the camera is easier to use than you realize. Even though it is a rangefinder camera it has autofocus. So that's one hurdle you won't have to go over. The first thing you have to learn is how to load film in the camera.Next set the ISO film speed.Since the camera has Aperture priority all you have to do is set the lens aperture and the camera will do the rest. Just make sure you keep the shutter speed above the 1/focal length and you'll be OK. That's it. Rewind the film when you're done with the roll and get it developed.On the used market the body isn't worth that much, maybe $175 if it's in like new shape. The value is in the Zeiss lenses, $500 to over $600 each. Don't give them away.Len
