Sony E body + Contax G lens
COMPATIBLE MF MA AF AR
Allows using full focal length (even with AF) and manual aperture settings.
The Contax G was introduced by Yashica in 1994, as a competitor of the Leica rangefinders. The titanium-clad Contax G1 and G2 bodies had AF, therefore their native lenses had AF capability too. The lenses can be used on E receptacles using electronic adapters (the optics were designed by Zeiss, in comparable quality to the cameras).
G lenses are pretty small, so they fit the tiny Sony cameras well. Currently it seems to be only one adapter with AF support, manufactured by Techart. Of course, analog adapters are also available, but their capabilities are very limited.
