Voigt C-VM E Close Up Adapter

Voigtlander C-VM E Adapter

use classic Zeiss Contax  Rangefinder internal mount 50mm lenses in combination with the Voigtlander VM Close Up Adapter on full frame Sony Alpha 7/7r/7s or smaller format NEX cameras!

Mr. Kobayashi of Cosina had the interesting idea of adding a lens mount to his best selling Voigtlander VM E Close Focus adapter to create a focusing lens adapter for the popular internal mount classic Nikon and Zeiss Contax 50mm rangefinder lenses.   This makes good sense as the Voigtlander close focus adapter is a precision focusing helical.   Time will tell if the inventive Mr. K adds more lens mounts for non helical mount lenses.

This adapter is machined with such high precision that it does the original Contax Rangefinder camera mounts proud!  The VM-E Close focus adapter provides helical focusing without rotating the lens and it aperture ring - unlike the classic Contax rangefinder focusing experience which rotates the 50mm internal mount lenses.  Above shows a classic Zeiss Ikon 50/1.5 Carl Zeiss Sonnar from the mid 1950's mounted on the Voigtlander C-VM adapter mounted on the VM-E Close Focus Adapter mount on a full frame Sony Alpha 7 camera.   Of course the same combo will also mount on all of the smaller fromat NEX cameras.

 

These pics show the 50/1.5 Sonnar mounted only on the Voigtlander C-VM E adapter offered here.  The Voigtlander C-VM E adapter MUST be used in combination with the Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter (purchased separately HERE).  The C-VM E adapter is ONLY for the classic internal mount Zeiss Ikon 50mm rangefinder lenses.  It will not mount the other focal length external mount classic Zeiss Ikon lenses, nor the autofocus Contax G series lenses.

 

A family portrait of many of the classic Zeiss Ikon Rangefinder internal mount 50mm lenses which you can adapt to the Sony NEX series (small format or full frame A7/7r/7s Alpha) by using the  Voigtlander C-VM E adapter offered and Voigtlander VM-E Close Focus Adapter in combination.  Shown are various 50/1.5 and 50/2 Sonnars and 50/3.5 Tessars.  Notice the earlier nickel lenses produced for the alpha of the classic Zeiss Contax Rangefinder line, the Zeiss Contax I of 1932 shown above.
