Does anyone make an adapter to mount Contax/Yashica lenses on Nikon
bodies? I'm thinking of bidding on a Contax Zeiss lens but I can't
find a suitable adapter anywhere.

TIA

If you did find an adaptor I don't think that you would be able to focus to infinity unless the adaptor had some glass in it. I believe that the registration distance from the mount to the sensor plane is 45.5mm for the Contax/Yashica lens and 46.5mm for the Nikon F mount. I don't think that 1mm gives enough room for a plain adaptor.
