This picture was taken with the Contax G, an autofocus-rangefinder camera, or you can say, an autofus version of the Leica M7. butI bought it because of the Carl Zeiss-lenses. (Contax was already a real rangefinder in the 30's and before WorldWarII more expensive and technically further than the Leica and also a German brand owned by Zeiss). But I used mainly for color-slides. I used and some still use it with only three lenses: 21mm, 35mm, 90mm (longer focal lengths are not usable at rangefinders).
My actual camera is the Sony A700 which I bought, again, because of the possibillity to use Carl Zeiss-lenses. At this moment I have only two lenses for it: Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar 16-80(=24-120mm) with normally great contrast and colours and the really great Zeiss Sonnar 1.8-135mm.
Thanks for your questions and comments.

Zeiss lenses are famoud for their contrast and great colour rendition and a feeling of depth or three-dimensional effects. And sharpness is also great. But in its class of 135mm-lenses the Zeiss Sonnar reaches already great contrast and sharpness on 1.8!
On a level that other 135mm-lenses reach at 4.0 or 5,6 (when I may believe many tests I read on this lens)
