Re: Contax lens on Pentax?

You need to look here:

I have used some Contax Carl Zeiss prime lenses on Pentax DQSL. They were rebuilt with Leitax mounts, but now I returned them back to their native C/Y mounts.

Genereally I found APS-C sized DSRL to be too tricky to manual focus because of smaller viewfinder and need to manually operate the aperture. Even the viewfinders of best APS-C crop DSLRs (as Pentax) aren't comparable to ones on 35mm film Contax. Now I am using these Contax lenses on mirror less cameras, but Pentax - with native Pentax AF capable lenses.

P.S. Pentax related questions ask in Pentax SLR forum - you will get more answers.
