    Contax G to NEX adapter at Amazon

    Have any of you tried this RainbowImaging adapter for Contax G lenses to the NEX? Its being sold through Amazon?

    http://www.amazon.com/RainbowImaging...706216&sr=1-25

    It's cheaper than the Kipon one I've been planning to get, which actually makes me suspicious, but it would probably be delivered more quickly than a Kipon from Hong Kong would be.

    If anyone has a Kipon adapter for sale at a decent price for each of us, however, that would be the neatest solution of all.

    All the best of the season,

    I have the Kipon for the Contax G to NEX but I have a couple of Rainbow imaging adapter for the NEX. The quality is very similar and they all worked fine except for infinity focus. All the adapters I got err on the conservative side so they all went over the infinity focus when you line up the distance scale at infinity.

    I guess in that other post I could have listed the link. Oh well, it was for the SpyderLenscal. I have since gotten it and it is wonderful for checking lenses and setting micro focus .
