    I'm posting this for a friend. He's got a Contax Aria and is curious about lens compatability. Is the Contax mount special or can he use Nikon/Cannon/etc without any problems? I wish I had more input, but I use the Pentax K system, so I have no idea about other lens styles.:er:

    It is a proprietary mount. The lenses produce stunningly sharp images. They are as good as any 35mm lenses ever made.

    I loooove yashica lenses, they are so cheap and produce exceptional images (they are Zeiss designs manufactored in the same factory but no T* coating).
