Contax 167

picked up this camera in Ex+ condition for only $69.  The Contax 167 is a marvelous camera combining all the bells and whistles available to Kyocera in Japan AND the use of Zeiss lenses.  Some of these older film cameras have skyrocketed in price while others seem to languish like the 167.  The Contax G2 and its lenses are now hard to touch without dropping serious coin.  Part of it is that the G2 is cute and has been featured in a number of ad campaigns recently. 

Shot on a round trip tour of Fairplay, Hartsel, Wilerson Pass and then home thru Colorado Springs.  The 167 worked flawlessly.  It also has the advantage of using just 4 AAA batteries to power it rather than some esoteric battery.
