    Contax/Zeiss lenses on 4/3?

    Anybody got experience/opinions on using some of the old Contax Zeiss lenses on an 4/3 camera
    Are there lenses out there that offer interesting bang for the buck?

    Because I enjoy experimenting with vintage lenses, I have recently acquired a 50/1.5 Carl Zeiss Opton Sonnar that I will be using on the G1. Two others: 50/2.8 Tessar and 85/2 Sonnar. I have a 50's era 85/2 Nikkor that is a copy of the Sonnar design, it would be interesting to compare those two.

    OK.. I was thinking more along the lines of the old contax/yashica lens for the RTS SLR.

    there were zeiss lenses... apparently ... going by price the 21/2.8 distagon is a goodie... and there are 50/1.7 and 1.4 that are supposed to be super sharp... anybody tried these out... adaptors to 4/3 seem readily available and prices... apart from the distagon mentioned above while not cheap are in same range as leica r or less

    I have been eyeing Contax/Yashica mount lenses as well...although first I was looking at some Leica R. I missed 2 or 3 good deals in the past few days...
