My experience with Rainbow Imaging Contax g/Nex adapter

I'm sorely disappointed with the experience of focusing with the adapter. The focus ring is really abrasive and notchy feeling. And the release tab is right where I want to put my left hand fingers for focusing. Honestly, I can't see myself using this adapter for more than 10 seconds. What a shame! I sorely wanted to start using my Contax G lenses on my NEX 3 and utlimately NEX 7 when it becomes available.

Guess I need to consider the Kipon and Metabones adapters. I was hoping not to spend that much money, but maybe in this case, you get what you pay for.
