    With all the new optics from Phaseone-Schneider and a sync speed of 1/1600s I personally don't see any reason to not to abandon Contax if one can afford the switch.

    There is the older Mamiya M645 80/1.9 out there if you could find one. I have seen images from it and it was very nice. Also there is a lot of good feedback regarding it. They can be tough to find because those who have them are reluctant to part with them.

    I know the 80 mm 1.9 great lens but it is not an AF lens and the Zeiss lens is a little bit better. The AF makes a huge difference!

    Even if there was such an adapter it would make the AF useless as the sensor will be pushed back a few mm...actually the viewfinder will also be useless...unless you could adjust the mirror/ focusing screen...
