I'm considering buying a Contax T3 as a carry-everywhere camera. Tried the Leica CM/ Minilux but didn't like the shutter lag and high price. I'd like to know what people think of the lens on the T3. By all accounts this is an excellent lens, or so I've heard. But I'd like to see a comparison of the more salient characteristics (beyond just "sharp" and "contrasty") from discerning Leica users. Preferrably contrast it with a familiar lens, such as 35/2M ASPH, 50/2M, 35/2R, 50/2R, etc. What I'm most interested in learning about is if the lens produces a color cast. While I owned a Contax G system I found a noticeable "magenta" cast to the images. This is unlike my experience with Leica lenses, which I'd characterize as "neutral" to "slightly warm". A dicussion of other qualities will also be greatly appreciated. I've felt that Contax images are more saturated while Leica's are more transparent/luminous, Thanks!
