Question to Contax G adapter owners
Sep 6, 2013

I recently purchased a Contax G 90mm lens and a Fotodiox adapter.

I am quite happy with the adapter in terms of quality, it does what I expected it would do very well, particularly for its relatively low price.

I am slightly disappointed that the focusing feeling is not so good (a little mechanical friction, although no real hard-stop) as with standard or high-quality manual lenses, and thought there may be other adaptors that can possibly provide with a more dampened and "butterry" smooth feeling.

Has anyone used different adapters and finally found one that simulates the focusing ring feeling of a good quality lens ? Or is there a trick to play on the Fotodiox adapter, such as greasing it that would allow for a better feeling ?

Sorry to sound so snobbish, but a good lens should provide with good feelings... Any help would be appreciated !

Marc
