M42 adapter for Contax N


New Member
Hi there,

I'm thinking seriously about purchasing either the N1 or the NX (I seriously prefer the N1, but why do they only let you get +/- 2EV compensation instead of +/- 3EV? This's a serious bummer if you use pre-exposure regularly and don't want to have to fiddle w/ the film-speed setting!)

My question is, is there an M42 adapter so that I can continue to use my older Sonnars, Flektogon and Pancolars until I can afford more of the new & pricey N lenses? Or to use C/Y-mount lenses? I understand that I'd have to give up auto-diaphram use, but that'd be quite worth it, I think.
