With any converted Contax N lenses with firmware 3.00, you may simply apply power to the lens and you can use the lens' aperture ring to control the aperture. You simply apply +5V to pin 1 and pin 4 and ground to pin 8.

This means you may buy an m43 to EF adapter off the shelf and somehow you bring power to the Contax N lens (e.g. via an external battery pack) you may control the aperture of the Contax N lens using the lens' own aperture ring.

We do not have any plans to look at the m43 mount. Our highest priority is to increase customer satisfaction by reducing the turnaround time of our Contax N to Canon EF mount conversion service. Our second highest priority is to finish the Contax 645 project. Only after finishing our 2 highest priorities will we start looking into other ventures.
