The gal and I went on a little stay-cation and when we came back I returned to a bunch of packages. Most of them are for the new SSCC release but a few were for me; one being my new favorite SLR camera. I’ve been on the hunt for a Contax® RTS III for a year or so but I refused to pay asking price. I’ve seen them range from $500 to $700+ depending on the condition and if it comes with a lens or not. I figured I’d implement patients and would eventually find the right one. Well, that time finally came when I was able to haggle this beautiful camera with a 50mm 1.7 Carl Zeiss® lens for $400 shipped from Japan, which is a great deal. I’ve never held or used the RTS III before buying one and the thing that made me lust over the internet for a year was the beautiful design that the Porsche® Industrial Design team was responsible for drawing up in 1990. I must say, it captured my attention on the screen but it surpassed my expectations when it arrived. In short, I fell in love with this camera as soon as I unboxed it but I became obsessed with it after the first press of the shutter. I cant wait to see what I create with this bad boy.
