Novoflex NEX/CONT overview

  • 1Description

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.

    Novoflex NEX/CONT reviews

    Adapter for Contax/Yashica Lens to Sony NEX Camera is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 13.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works as advertised 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very rugged, Solid, needs tripod mount 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It doesn't get better than this! I have a big and heavy German made Zeiss 180mm f/2.8 prime lens and I previously used a cheap adaptor with it on my A7R. It had tons of play and wobble. Just got this Novoflex adaptor and it's superb. The connection is not loose, nor is it too tight. It's just perfect. This is my third Novoflex adaptor and while they are expensive, they are worth the cost in my opinion.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best C/Y Adapter for a price 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than any other 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Top quality for the Price 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for I use this adapter with a Zeiss 35-70mm F3.4 on my Sony A7ii. I was previously using a Fotodiox adapter (not pro) which had some play on the Zeiss lens. The novoflex adapter feels like an oem fit. It has less play than my native FE lenses. Flare and image quality appear to be a controlled better with the Novoflex adapter over the fotodiox as well. It really does give you better pictures. I also tried this adapter with a yashica 80-200mm F4 lens and there is some play but the same lens with the fotodiox adapter felt very loose and possibly decentered. If you are a pixel peeper you will want this adapter. As a side note, I also tried the K&F Concept C/Y-NEX adapter and it was way too tight on my A7ii. Oddly the K&F Concept Minolta-NEX fit fine.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works flawlessly with a NEX-7 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.
