    I forgot, but I'm also looking for an Amedeo Nikon/Leica M or LTM adapter for the Sonnar.

    I'm fairly sure that the Zeiss 50/1.5 Sonnars were made in Contax mount not S mount. The two mounts are similar but the focus pitch is very slightly different between the two, so Zeiss Contax (RF) lenses will physically fit into S mount cameras and vice versa but the focus would be off in each case, which I understand is why Amadeo Musceli produces separate adaptors for Leica M to Contax (RF) and Leica M to Nikon S mount.

    I have a Nippon Kogaku Japan 5cm f/1.4 Nikkor-S C (Sonnar) lens and an Amadeo Nikon to Leica M adaptor with machined pits for 6-bit coding that I would part with. Please PM me if you're interested.

    Pete.

    Pete,

    thanks for your answer. What I read about this edition of the new Sonnar is quite confusing, with people saying it is a contax mount and other saying Nikon RF mount. But as Zeiss charaterizes it as a S-mount, I'll believe them for now, use a S-Mount/Leica M adapter for the moment and try to find a Contax/Leica M adapter later and test it.

    Alahome, thanks for the tip but it seems to have been sold already ! No luck !

    Nikon RF mount is also known as Nikon-S mount.
