I just saw the announcement for the new EOS/NEX adapter with autofocus. I see it is only enabled for newer (>2006) EOS lenses. Does the adapter work with converted Contax-N lenses ?

Unfortunately Contax N lenses converted by us will only work in manual focus mode. Autofocus is disabled.

Why is this? It's a bit inconvenient since I don't own any Canon lenses!

Our apologies but before we released AF we tested a good variety of lenses. Some of them autofocus very accurately but some others would sometimes do so inaccurately on NEX, even though they work perfectly fine on EOS. We had no choice but to disable autofocus for them, because they don't actually work.
