If you had a Contax G, loved the lenses but moved on to M bodies because of better ergonomics, what lenses did you purchase for your new system? How did they compare to the Contax G glass?

I still have my G2 with 3 lenses,90, 45 and 28 which I love, I moved to a 5D ii with various lenses and the Zeiss 21mm f2.8, but now I seem to be using my X-Pro1 more and more but can't decide on which Zeiss lens to buy!! I was never really to happy with the 5D's sharpness

"better Ergonomics" on an M body? ?

Staying with G by all means, I'll never be an ex-.

I have and use both the Contax G and Leica M systems. I think the Contax 90 and the 90 Elmarit-M are about equal. I prefer the Contax 45mm to the 50mm Summicron, but also prefer the 50mm summilux ASPH to both. The current ZM 2/35 is better than both the 35 summicron ASPH and the contax 35. The 28 summicron ASPH is in a different league than the Contax 28.

I have, and use, both systems. I'm not sure that the M bodies have better ergonomics.
However, I prefer the G system glass, particularly the 45 and 28.
