the idea of an autofocus rangefinder chills my blood.
Quoting from Dante Stella:
"Since rangefinders have no groundglass to illustrate what is happening in the rest of the field, most rangefinder users are doing manually the exact same thing that single-point AF is. Sorry, guys, but if you're a slave to the RF, you can be replaced by contrast-detect or phase-detect autofocus"
Or ideally IR focusing if I might add.
Personally I love rangefinders for the lenses, the form factor, the viewfinders, the ergonomics and the sound, but RF focusing leaves me cold to be honest. The Contax G was awesome but it needed a better AF system. The Hexar AF is perfect but it doesnt change lenses. The x100 is good but no lenses and not FF.
Round and round they go, but they never get it 100% right...
