I wanted to share this info with those who would want to preserve your old Contax bodies. Leicatime in Rome has been well known for its excellent craftsmanship in making camera cases for Leica bodies. Recently on my order, Luigi, the owner, created a half case for RTS/RTS II bodies. It's made of thick and soft calf leather in an exquisite Italian tradition and it provides excellent grip as well as the protection your favorite camera deserves. The case also seems to d&en the shutter sound slightly and that comes in handy when shooting among a crowd of people. In fact, I took the PMD off my RTS and decided to go back to manual winding. It's a fresh feeling again!
