A Gentleman in the Farmer's Market used a Contax in 1958
I sometimes go to the Farmer's Market in downtown Pensacola (on Saturdays), and I buy some baked goodies from some gentleman (with a German sounding last name). Today, I had with me my M8 that I just got back a couple of days ago from Leica NJ, and this gentleman commented on how beautiful the M8 is. Then he commented on having used a Zeiss Ikon in 1958 in the war. I asked him if it was a Contax, and he said Yes. I told him that I wanted to show him a really beautiful Leica (my M3), to which he said "even more beautiful than this one"?
I am planning to take with me my Contax IIa to the next Farmer's Market, and I will ask the man if he had some war images he can share with me. It is so nice to "run into" such RF users in places you would not expect.
I just thought to share this with you.
