            Comments about Contax G Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Champagne):

            At first, it is difficult to line up the lens to attach into the adapter, for there is no marking or reference point on the adapter. The locking switch is confusing on its position. After couple time of practice, it is just fine.

                Comments about Contax G Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Champagne):

                This adapter is a perfect example of form follows function. This adapter may not be the sleekest, lightest, or the most attactive option, but it is certainly the most functional.The oversized focus ring falls nicely in hand, and comfortably lengthens the focus throw for precise manual operation. The overall focus feel is very smooth and well weighted. NOTE: the focus feel is highly dependent on both the condition of the lens, as well as careful attention to proper mounting. In my case, I was fortunate to be using a brand new Planar 2/45, so the results are fantastic!!!A quick note on finish. I ordered the silver/champagne finish in order to match my silver lens. The finish is incredibly high quality, and really blends nicely with the finish on the lens. I applaud Metabones for offering this special finish.Overall, I am beyond pleased with this product. The Contax G Planar 2/45 is hands down one of the best lenses in existence, and this adapter, used along with my Sony A7, has provided a truly first class experience. I honestly feel this adapter provides a better user experience then most adapter M-mount lenses. The secret is in the size of the focusing ring.The only thing approaching a complaint for me is that the large focusing ring does crowd the space between the lens and the camera's grip. That said, I would say this is more an issue with the camera's diminulative size, rather than the adapter.

                Comments about Contax G Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Champagne):

                I bought this adapter for mounting Contax G90 lens to A7R. This adapter made in good material and via good process. One star is deducted - due to the infinity position is not accurate, need to turn back a little.
