C/Y (Contax/Yashica) Adapter Advice Requested
Jan 6, 2014

I want to mount one of my favorite lenses, Contax/Zeiss 100mm Makro on a 1DMKIII, or 5dMKIII.  I primarily want to use this setup for macro.  I've seen a lot of adapters and even some the OptixPCB Version 6.  Unfortunately, a good chip can be placed on a bad adapter and the other way around.

I've searched for some guidance, but haven't really come up with any good advice.
