Indeed, I got 50N becau ...

Another follow up. SKGrimes just fixed the existing bayonet ring at minimal cost. I have lens & hood back now, and it works fine.

As follow up, USA service is out of the part for this hood. (They said they had only a couple spare rings for larger hoods.) They said Contax Japan doesn't have them either. I called UK, and they d ...

Thanks for advice. I'll do that. Does anyone have any suggestions about how they have used local repairs? I suppose I should bring my body so they don't try to slap on a Contax body to test. Any o ...

I got some sand in the focus of my converted Planar. I can hear it sometimes when autofocusing. I can hear it more when I turn the focus ring manually. I can see a few pieces of sand in the manual ...
