Hi

I have access to a number of CZ lenses that were used with an ageing Icarex camera. The lenses are bayonet mount (Carl Zeiss Tessar) and I have been searching for an adaptor but I am a little confused. I see that some forum member are using Zeiss lenses and I am hoping that some of you could guide me towards what sort of adaptor I should be looking for to use on the Panasonic G1.

Thanks in advance

Joe

You may have to fashion an adapter yourself. The Icarex had a unique mount, one of the reasons for its demise.

Thanks for the info Hikari.... yep, it seems that way. I have had no luck finiding anything on the net. I am going to send an enquire to Zeiss and see if they can help me. It would be such a pity to let these lenses die.

You may want to broaden your search to include Icarex lens adapters for other bodies, too.

I have no experience with the Icarex adapters, but it appears there's one for Canon EOS bodies, for example. You could simply stack the Icarex-to-EOS adapter with an EOS-m43 adapter and have a workable combination.

While stacking adapters might sound clumsy, it actually works pretty well. I already have a few adapters designed for Canon FD and Pentax M42 screwmount. I use them with my E-P1 and G1 in combination with one intermediate adapter, rather than buy another whole set just for m43.

Bcostin... many thanks. You confirm the info that was sent to me from RainbowImaging.

I have just bought two other adaptors one for a Revuenon and another for a Rokkor... added to the FD I already had, so I think the Zeiss will have to wait..... patience...... but it is difficult... isn't it? I would so love to try the Zeiss lenses!!!!!!!!

Cheers
