Just got my contax g 28mm, 45mm, and 90mm with the Novoflex NEX/CONT adapter.
Can not get the lenses to attach to the adapter. they just flop around inside the inner ring of the adpater. Obviously I"m anovice at this. Got my voightlander instantly attached to my M to E mount (Novoflex also.)
Am I missing something here??? I can't find any exact directions (probably too simple an operation). Feeling foolish but left wondering if this is the right adapter - are there NOvoflex for Contax/Yashika adapters that aren't contax G??
The Contax G mount, which was for the Contax rangefinder camera, is not the same as the Contax/Yashica mount, which lenses were used on the Contax and Yashica single lens reflex cameras.
The Contax G lenses were smaller diameter than the C/Y lenses and it was not possible to fit the "G" rangefinder lenses on the C/Y single lens reflex cameras, and vice versa.
The Novoflex adapter which adapts the Contax/Yashica single lens reflex lenses to the NEX body won't work with Contax G lenses.
The Novoflex adapters are really nicely done and work without a hitch on the NEX cameras, but you need to be sure to get the right one. Sorry for any confusion.
