In as much as neither camera is a complete design by either manufacturer and both with considerable draw backs my question is which would be a better choice. The contax 5meg or the Leica 3.2meg. Has anyone used both. I currently use a D1x which is with out question in my opinion the finest digital made irregardless of megapixels. In comparison to other high end cameras the Nikon's processing of the image is far superior. I am looking for a camera that will provide great images in a smaller package.
