Greetings,

Do you maintain waiting lists for those of us who are drooling for these lenses but who don't have our own to convert? It would be great if there were a list for that, and we could watch the progress as names were crossed off the waiting list (and our turn approached!)

Thanks very much.

Sometimes some are listed for sale here, but typically it's up to the photographer to find them on eBay, Photo.net, retail shops that still have a few, etc. Sadly, I watched as 50/1.4-N's were at $350 this past winter jump up to $850 as I am waiting for development of that mount.

Thanks for the info. (Not what I want to hear, but expected, I guess.) I'll keep hunting!

Italy usually has the best Contax prices.
Germany, the highest.
Check the Alternative Digital Systems & Lenses at http://www.fredmiranda.com
Lots of Contax guys post there and have leads to share.
