It's hard to call a camera “unique” and really mean it. With a camera like the Contax G1, however, it does sport a truly unique feature set and design that separates it from all other 35mm rangefinders, as well as all other 35mm cameras, in general. Developed in 1994, the G1 was positioned as a competitor to the Leica M6—a legend in its own right—but it was competing on pretty unfair and very different terms. You see, the G1 is an autofocusing rangefinder—a claim that is only matched by one other camera in history: its successor, the G2. This distinction makes the Contax G1 stand out in the realm of purely manual focus, purely manual operation rangefinders, such as the Leicas and Bessas many are familiar with, but it also positions it as an interesting alternative to SLRs and fixed-lens compacts.
