Hi there!
I found on sale a few of this lenses at a good price and I'd like to buy one. Since the "electric" version, for some reason, comes at way less, I was wondering if the electric contacts may cause some trouble using an adapter ring or if both versions of the lens are as easy to adapt.
Thank you for your help!

Lucio, I have 4 electric lenses, including the CZJ Flektogon 20mm F2.8. No problems with adapters for Sony Alpha.

Thank you very much, Gerald. I was just worried that the pins for the electric connection couldn't get completely pushed back inside of the lens body by the adapter ring and that the flange distance would therefore be excessive, but I guess from what you say that those pins work just like the diaphgram pin.

Those pins are spring loaded.

Thank you too, Koji, I just ordered the lens! Smile
