Product Highlights
  • Adapts Contax/Yashica Lens to Sony NEX

One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Contax/Yashica Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Contax or Yashica lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

          Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Contax/Yashica Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

          Hands down the best and highest quality lens adapters are made by Novoflex. They are usually much more expensive than the Asian adapters but you're paying for consistency between adapters. Highly recommended.

            Coupled this to a Zeiss 200mm/f2 ApoSonnar telephoto lens and a Sony A7S camera. Provides a rock solid connection. Tighter than Metabones, but NOT too tight. Perfect fit and finish is also top notch. It's costly but exceptionally well made.

                Contax lenses to Sony A7 for photography and film making. Tighter fit than any other adapter including metabones. Solid build and hi end tolerances which is everything in this application. I see zero flaws with this adapter, it is the best one and by looking at the price they know it.

                    It would be lovely if it could be shorter, but hey... physics!There's not much to it, other than a Sony E mount "male" end and a C/Y "female" end. Both fit very nicely. Not loose, not tight. Feels like what one expects from a German company - precision.I've used it several times with the 25 2.8, 35 2.8 and 50 1.7, and there is no problem with focus... the images seem every bit as crisp as the ones I take with the new Zeiss 35/2.8 FE on the a7R.If you've got old Contax glass, this little thing should make you quite happy. I'm just loving using those lenses again, after not doing so for like 10 years. Reminds you of the different way you have to approach MF photography, in a good way.

                    This adapter is everything you expect of a Novoflex adapter. It's solidly built, attaches the lens without any play or wobble, and works perfectly for focus. But Contax/Yashica lenses are big and heavy and this really needs a tripod mount.

                        Novoflex adapter puts Contax/Yashica lenses back to work on Sony NEX5N. Solid construction and precise fit make the Novoflex adapter the best choice for adapting premium lenses to the remarkable NEX5N.

                          It replaced an earlier purchase that did not work as well.

                          Strongly recommend this product, I use it with a Sony NEX-7, a Tamaron 2X adapter and a Sigma 28-200 manual focus lens. I'm very pleased.
