It also features manual wind, manual focus, a beautiful contrasty Viewfinder, reliable electronics that assist but don’t overwhelm, and when felt and used, it is wonderful to behold.It is dense, heavy, solid and very comfortable to hold.It took Contax over 7 years in redesigning the original RTS to bring us the RTS II, how many iterations of a certain DSLR/Mirrorless have been released since 2005 (8 years ago) ?How many Camera manufacturers will wait 8 years to bring out the Mk 2?Anyway, shooting with this camera is a pleasure; handling it and holding it to the eye is part of the pleasure of this Porsche designed gem, and part of that human soulful and emotional attachment finds its way into the Photographs themselves. The magic for me lies in the use of an instrument lovingly created and lovingly used, and the surprise and warm feeling of pleasure and pride when weeks or even months after the event when once a click and roll of the shutter – an instance in time, one day, forgotten, captured forever a treasure which I then have been able to find and keep as my creation.This makes the results, created slowly, with intent and thought, far more valuable and precious. The Contax is one of many camera’s which, in my opinion, embody this feeling and produce the Magic.All 36 exposures were keepers, and I thoroughly enjoyed the walk and using the Contax RTS II.The Results, wide open were as expected quite soft with the combination of 45mm Tessar and Rollei CR200 Slide Film – a remake of Agfa RSX 200 but with a Pet plastic base — a grainy, warm Film with loads of character.
The Tessar photographs have their own unique look, feel and sharpness with an old world charm to them.
I have owned a Contax ST and also the Contax Aria – which had the biggest and brightest and most pleasing Viewfinder of any 35mm sized camera – Film or Digital, I have ever used.
I cannot remember why I was foolish enough to sell my Aria (with 50mm f1.4 Planar) but I did.
A Porsche in West Germany and lenses designed and made by Carl Zeiss in West Germany.
The RTS II has the same design as the RTS, but with much improved electronics, reliability, larger brighter finder, a Titanium shutter and a is a camera the original should have been.I spent a while choosing the perfect lens to go with this compact 35mm SLR which rivals a modern mirror less in terms of size and compactness and a Leica M in terms of build quality and perfection.
