I've seen a few people make their own adapter for the Contax/Kiev mount 8's from the Kiev body if I'm not mistaken.

right!

it's not all that difficult to do, taking off the mount from a broken Kiev camera and connecting it with a short NEX adapter, in my case a 'faulty' Pen-F > NEX adapter

my 5N with a CZ 1.5/50 in Contax RF mount:

if I'd use it regularly I'd cut off that superfluous metal around the mount, looks kind of cool though

in case of the J-8 I'd also strongly recommend to get the LTM version and use a regular, cheap M39>NEX adapter.
