Contax SLR viewfinder brightnesses compared

Guest

Does anyone know how the brigtnesses of the various viewfinders/focusing
screens among the Contax SLR cameras compare? Can anyone rank the
brigtnesses of the viewfinders of the various Contax SLR's?

I already have seen that the brightness of the 167MT viewfinder is less than
that of the 159MM... so what about all the other cameras? (RTS 139Q 137MD
137MA RTSII 159MM 167MT RTSIII ST RX AX Aria N1 NX)

If anyone knows or of anyone knows of an online article with rankings,
please let me know.

Thanks,

No online article but my own experience to draw on.I have an Ax,Aria and used to own a Rx for a few months.
To my surprise,my Aria viewfinder appears a bit brighter than my Ax and Rx (ex) where the later two are on par even though the Aria's glass prism is the smallest.My guess is the viewfinder screen that makes the difference.All 3 spot the split screen with the surrounding microprism but of different types.
Aria(FU 4) , Ax & Rx-(FW 1).

My personal ranking:

RTS III
RTS II
S2/N1/Nx (same level)
RX
Aria
G2 (perhaps in line with Aria)
