Product Detail
Today, Leica has announced the Leica S-Adapter-C, which allows Contax 645 AF lenses to be mounted on a Leica S system camera (S2, S2-P, or S typ 006) with full functionality, including auto focus and aperture control. From Leica:

Leica Camera is pleased to introduce the Leica S-Adapter C which will be available from this June. With this adapter, Contax 645 lenses can be used with the Leica S (Typ 006), Leica S2 and Leica S2-P cameras. The adapter enables owners of the Contax 645 system to switch effortlessly to the Leica S System.

The Leica S-Adapter C when used with Contax 645 lenses on any of the Leica S cameras offers the following:

-Autofocus and manual focus with focus confirmation
-Automatic aperture
-Using the EXIF data of lenses of Contax 645 system
-Use of corrective lens profiles for the Contax 645 system when converting the RAW files in Adobe Lightroom or Adobe Photoshop.

When using the adapter with Contax 645 lenses, the aperture is selected with the manual mode or the automatic setting of the camera.

Stefan Pick, Contax photographer for many years, was the first to test the S-Adapter C in conjunction with the Leica Stand Contax 645-lenses. Stefan Pick said, “Initially, I was pessimistic about the adapter solution, but already from the first use I was enormously surprised how quickly and how well the auto focus on the Leica S works - faster than on Contax system in the past. The image quality as a result of the combination of Contax lenses on the Leica S is gigantic. Therefore, the connection of the Leica S with the Leica S-Adapter C is an extremely affordable entry-level solution to the Leica S-System and a better quality solution as a digital back, for photographers who own the Contax lenses from the past.”

The Leica S-Adapter C supports the following lenses from the Contax 645 system:

-Distagon T* 3.5 / 35 mm
-Distagon T* 2.8 / 45 mm
-Distagon T* 3.5 / 55 mm
-Planar T* 2.8 / 80 mm
-Apo-Makro-Planar T* 4 / 120 mm
-Sonnar T* 2.8 / 140 mm
-Sonnar T* 4 / 210 mm
-Tele-Apotessar T* 4 / 350 mm
-Vario-Sonnar T* 4.5 / 45-90 mm
-Mutar 1.4x T*
-Auto Extension Ring 13 mm
-Auto Extension Ring 26 mm
-Auto Extension Ring 52 mm

The Leica S-Adapter C does not support auto-focus for the following components:

-Apo-Makro-Planar T*4 / 120 mm as it is a MF lens
-Automatic bellows

The adapter will be shipping from Leica in June 2013 and will be available for $1,950.
