Adapters Contax Lenses to Nikon Bodies
11 months ago

Hi,

My cameras are D7000 / D5100 / D90 / D50 however I have a 35mm film system and that is Contax does anyone know if there is a manufacturer in the UK that makes an adapter to allow me to use the Contax lenses on the Nikon bodies and if so will I get full metering

Thanks in advance

Kevin

If you insist on a UK manufacturer, I think you are out of luck, but there are a couple of solutions available to UK residents.

The first is to deal with Leitax in Spain for a conversion kit and/or installation. If your lens model permits, you may even be able to get full metering with all of your bodies.

The second is to use an adapter such as this one which can be ordered through Amazon UK. This sort of adapter gives you a choice. You can either use it with the built-in 1.4x teleconverter and obtain infinite focus and indifferent quality, or you can remove the teleconverter and lose the ability to focus to infinity.

Hello Michael,

Many thanks for your response, my apologies for my delay in answering but I am recovering from a stinking cold.

I have had a look at your solutions but they are not what I was after, I am looking for an adapter a bit like the old Tamrons, where the adapter one side was on the camera body and the lenses could be mounted and removed from the other side, so if I wish I can return to film quiet easily.

I have done a Google to n avail so any other leads will be welcomed

Kevin
