Hello and first question


New Member
Hi there,

i am on the edge to purchase an contax 645 system with 80mm kit lens.

i am having a canon eos 5D II + 85mm 1.2 and TS-E 17mm.
i probably will sell my canon stuff to buy the contax and shooting film first until i have enough money to buy and digital back.

did i say sell all canon stuff? i am really in love with the TS-E and was wondering if its somehow possible to use an adaptor for EOS to C645 mount(is it called this way?) and keep it!
The image circle of the TS-E is huge so it would be definetely funny to test it with the contax.

so are there adaptors known to mankind to use canon lenses with this 645 system?

Yashica 28-70mm f3.5-4.5 AF compatability

I have a Contax RTS (not a II or III). I am looking at a Yashica 28-70mm lens. Is the lens a C/Y mount? Also, I assume that the lens is MM, if so, will it work with my AE system? If the lens is AF, will it work as a manual focus on my RTS?
Basic questions, I know, but just getting started.
