Opening the #Minox #35ML is a #joy. Look at how flush the lens is, look at the smooth movement, and look: aperture ring and manual focus.

Hard to see it all in one pic, but the #Minox #35ML has a thread for a cable release next to the shutter button, a hotshoe for an external flash, and a knurled ring to cock the shutter without winding the film on for double exposures. #Astonishing design.

Two fantastic cameras, not even as compact cameras, but compared to SLRs. The #Contax #T2 is my current daily rider, as it has a flash and AF for casual snaps, but the #Minox #35ML was my previous pocket camera. The #Zeiss #Sonnar 38mm f2.8 is a pretty unusual lens to have. I would expect a #Biogon or a #Planar, and slightly wider too, but the choice is excellent. Wide enough, very low distortion and the ability to get into the action. The #Minotar is an absolutely incredible lens and the camera is the most discreet thing I’ve ever owned.
