So, am I incorrect on this...there is NO Contax RF to m43 adapter. They do not exist...right?

I'm sure you already tried that...
Found Contax/Nikon and Contax/Yashica and Pentacon-6/Kiev mounts...

There isn't just one Contax mount. The lens you have is the one you can't get an adapter for. That mount only removes the front part of the lens. The helicoid is left behind. There is no adapter for that. For the Contax screw mount there is.

So far the options are a bit silly (for an $18 lens). There is this one from the eBay seller Amedeo at $179
...or I could go the 2 adapter route and get a Contax/Kiev to Leica M mount adapter for around $250 and then an M mount to m4/3 for another $25-$30. Kind of defeats the whole point of an inexpensive FSU lens. Good thing the rest of my FSU lenses are m42 (this is why its important to READ THE DESCRIPTION when bidding on eBay)...oh well, lesson learned. Into the junk drawer it goes.

I have the amadeo adapter - but primarily for my Sonnar mounted 1959 J3 / collapsible 50 f2 Sonnar / Helios and several J8 on my Leica M8 .
This will allow me to adapt to my G1 with a Leica M / m43 mount .
Using USSR , Kiev mount lenses on m43 is not an easy option , though the focus alignment problems of screw versions is eliminated on my G1 .

Your best bet is to get the Amedeo Adapter for the Helios-103.
Or- you could get the close-up helical for the Summar and mount the Helios in it. That was hard.
