Dear Marc,

I have same adapter for my Contax / Kiev silver Jupiter 9.

Please note that there was two versions of Contax / Kiev mount:

1. Under 50mm - witch is very difficult to adapt on NEX

2. Above 50mm - witch is easily adapt with adapter you have linked.

You had no problem, since Jupiter 11 is 135mm. (My J-9 is 85mm)

But for 50mm J-8 it is whole different story. You should forget it in Contax / Kiev mount, and buy it in M39 mount.


Thank you for your explanations.

Anyway, I just shot some pictures of the Kiev mount on my Jupiter 11 and of the Fotodiox Nikon(S)-NEX adapter, so I may as well post them should they ever help anyone in the future:

I personnally have no intention to purchase a Jupiter 8, by the way !
