Metabones Contax G to m4/3 adapter as new

Now I want to use many of my full frame classic lenses only on my Sony A7S rather than the E-M1 I shall have a few high-quality m4/3 adapters for sale to fund those for the E mount.

First up is a Metabones Contax G to Micro 4/3 adapter. This shows almost no signs of use and works perfectly. It incorporates the focusing wheel that links with the 'G' lens focusing mechanisms.

It comes with original box, packing and instruction sheet, plus my original receipt.

This adapter allows use of the superb Carl Zeiss 45mm f2 Planar and 90mm f2.8 Sonnar T* lenses from the Contax G1 and 2 rangefinder cameras on micro 4/3 cameras.

Currently the cheapest legitimate price I can find for these adapters is 105, but I paid 84 inc P&P in 2011 and I'm happy to accept 65 by bank transfer to include signed-for UK P&P. That's cheaper than a new Fotodiox Pro version of the same adapter, and the Metabones is significantly smoother in use.

Here's a link to the current Amazon page, plus another to Ken Rockwell's background on the Contax G1 and 2 and their lenses:
