try the “adapted lens” forum.

Assume you mean the contax N AF lens.

Best to google it: For the N version:

Mediocre -especially at 300

opinions DO  vary - more copy variation than expected

heavy

not a patch on the c/y 100-300 which costs 3X more.

What usually puts people off is that you need an expensive smart adapter ( eg fringer 300 gbp ) to get it to AF and control aperture on sony E

You can use a dumb adapter but this has an iris which will just vignette. The aperture needs electronics to work it.

Otherwise - jolly super
