What are the chances of a Contax G to Nikon Z adapter?

This is a long shot, but I'm wondering what the brain trust on this forum is thinking.

I have all but decided on a Nikon Z over all other mirrorless systems, but there's one sticking point: I'd love to use my Contax G lenses on it without hacking them up first. Do you think there's even a slim chance that an adapter might be on the way?

Why not? Our chinese friends are jsually pretty fast at machining adapters. The G adapter is a bit complicated but hey,, nothing's impossible.

Nikon Z is going to be a very popular mount, so I would guess a Contax G to Z adapter is pretty much inevitable. A Techart AF version isn’t even out of the question, as they already make one for Sony E mount, but mf adapters are almost a certainty. Eventually.

You should just contact Novoflex in Germany and ask them. They deliver excellent quality, and already offer more than 100 (!) different adapters for almost all different lens/mount combinations, even rare ones.
And they also have already several adapters for the Z mount.

This is all good enough for me!

Don't need the adapter immediately, just want to make sure that I can still use my G lenses when the G2 goes up to the great repair shop in the sky.

I'm using a Haoge C/Y adapter on my Z6 with both my 28/2.8 Distagon and 50/1.7 Planar (both focus to infinity) and very happy with it, $50 from Amaz. and snug fit on both ends. Maybe contact the company and ask if they have one in the works(?)

Should be possible already. E.g metabones G/E-Mount, then techart E/Z.

Should be several, as a matter of course.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a native G to Z from Techart. The Techart G for Sony E works great, I had one for a while.

I would love that--the adapter you mention is the only reason I even considered a sony mirrorless.
