Re: Vario Sonnar on a X-E1

I use most of my Contax lenses on my XP-1. Adapter is from Rainbow imaging, and is surprisingly nicely made for the very low cost. I find the extra grip and mass of the Really Right Stuff plate and grip combo is almost necessary to make the camera balance well—I would imagine with the smaller  X-E1 body they will also balance better when an accessory grip is added. I did use to use them on a Lumix GF1 body, but there the imbalance was so much that it was really just holding the lens and the Lumix body was more like an accessory off the back of it...
