I stumbled across an online forum conversation about the likelihood of an adapter being made for Contax 645 lenses to mount on the Leica medium-format S cameras. Here's the link:

http://www.reddotforum.com/showthread.php/427-Contax-645-lenses-with-Leica-S2

Leica has lowered the entry cost for these new S versions, probably because the hi-rez Nikons and such are cutting deeply into their corner of the market. I'd think anyone with a Leica S would love to see these lenses become available for use on S cameras, tho I know how busy you are and how rigorously you must stick to one project at a time. I'm just making the link available to people here to see what happens, if anything.

Who, me? I'm saving my pennies for the NAM-1 conversion.

We think the idea is great. However we are not able to confirm or deny anything about our future roadmap.

Yes! And I've ordered one, which makes me very interested in adapting the Contax 645 lenses on other camera systems too.

I understand there's the converted NAM-1 / Canon to NEX option, anything else?

Thanks!

Edit: And how about a Leica S to future FF NEX adapter?

Electronic adapters with autofocus for Contax 645 lenses are either to Leica S mount by Leica themselves, or to Canon EF mount by us. We are not aware of any other fully electronic Contax 645 adapters.

As for your other question regarding Leica S to NEX adapter, we think the idea is great. However we are not able to confirm or deny anything about our future roadmap.

Hi, it's been 1,5 year since I posted here and I thought I might let everyone know I'm still interested in an Leica S to Sony NEX/FE mount adapter. Even more so, with the new generation ~50MP sensors coming in early 2015.

Occasionally the question comes up in other fora and I thought posting a link to one such thread could be of interest to future readers in search for such an adapter:

Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope one day a Leica S to Sony E-mount adapter will materialize.
