    Contax Distagon 28mm F2.8 on Nex-7 or Nex-5

    Has anyone used the Contax Distation T 28mm F2.8 lens on either the Nex-7 or 5? I found this mount adapter at Fotodiox which would work as it's the C/Y mount to nex, but they only list up to the Nex-5. The mount appears to be thick and I wondered if it would add any color cast or vignetting issues. I used this lens for a while on Canon and know it's a very good copy and figured it might be a good manual focus wide angle for the Sony.

    This is the mount on Fotodiox's site that I am assuming will work.

    Any Feedback is appreciated.

    It should work without issue. No worries re: vignette or color cast from the adaptor, it merely re-establishes the proper lens registration distance. I got my adaptor from Rainbow Imaging and it works fine on all my C/Y mount lenses.

    Thanks, to all for the info. The Nex-7 is really shaping up to be quite a powerful camera.

    Works great indeed! Very sharp and no colour casting.
    Like all C/Y Zeiss lenses.
