Will older manual models of my lenses work on the newer models



Hi Charles,

the short answer is: no

You can neither use your manual focus lenses on any Contax N-mount camera, nor can you use the new autofocus N-lenses on your manual focus bodies.

This is the same procedure as Minolta, Canon did already over 10 years ago (new lens mount) and soon Nikon will have this incompatibility older and newer lenses too.
