FotodioX CTX (G)-NEX-P overview

  • 1Description

The Adapter for Contax G Lens to Sony NEX Mount Camera from FotodioX allows a Contax G lens to attach to a Sony NEX camera body. Adapting a larger format lens to a smaller format sensor provides optical as well as practical advantages. The smaller image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration by using the center or "sweet spot" of the larger lens' image circle, thus providing edge-to-edge sharpness.

Although the lens will fit physically, automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or other electronic functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. Manual or aperture priority mode must be used when this adapter is attached. Its all-metal design and polished surface provide smooth mounting and long lasting performance.

Focus dial and internal focus pin.
Leaf spring mechanism for 'No Play' fit

    FotodioX CTX (G)-NEX-P reviews

    Adapter for Contax G Lens to Sony NEX Mount Camera is rated 3.2 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good but with a shortcoming It is a good and smooth fitted adapter but come with a shortcoming. One has to install the lens first to the adapter and then to the camera. To remove the lens one has to remove the lens and adapter from the the camera first, unlock the lens and remove the lens from the adapter. There is no unlock button on the outside of the adapter.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poorly engineered item to avoid I have two Contax/Carl Zeiss lenses, the 21mm f2.8 Biogon and the 45mm f2 Planar. This adapter works OK on the 21mm lens although its difficult to attach to the lens and there are no instructions. The 45mm lens is a totally different story. I couldn't get it attached and on one occasion thought it was attached and the lens fell off the camera onto the floor. Fortunately there was a thick carpet and the lens wasn't damaged. This item is a menace to your gear. I would recommend the Metabones adapter which many have praised.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Average quality I have owned 3 contax g adapters made by Fotodoix. The best one is an old version which has a bushing surrounding the screw. That is the only one which turns the G45 smoothly. The newer ones either stuck nor unsmooth on G45. This one is the newer version, which I dislike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than Metabones... Fotodiox has stepped up their game in the last couple of years. Their Pro adapters are quite useable, and I believe their quality control is now better than Metabones. My opinion, your experiences might well differ.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid, smooth adapter A good, solid adapter with smooth motion of the focussing ring, much better than the cheaper counterpart. No autofocus, but adapters with AF cost much more. My Contax lenses with this adaptor reach focus at infinity and overshoot it by a tiny bit, but this is better than not to reach it. All in all, higly recommended if you don't need AF.
