Recently purchased a Zeiss Vario-Sonar 80-200 / F4 and now I'm wondering whether or not there's a lens collar, foot, or support that can be mounted to it? Maybe someone's been ingenious enough to figure that out... but it looks like a stretch. Just wondering what others have done. Suggestions welcome! Thanks!

Oops, only saw this now JT. There are some pictures in my photolist with the novoflex adapter with NEX7 and resp C/Y 60mm macro and C/Y 100mm.

I now have had the novoflex mount for several months and can confirm it is absolutely perfect.

I would also be interested in a collar that could replace the stock tripod mount.  The stock mount on a 300mm 1:4 Zeiss is very wobbly and provides little stability for the lens.

Hi, Maybe you could have a look at Novoflex. They have several collars to fit on lenses.


I've just ordered one myself for the Novoflex adapter from Contax C/Y to E-mount.

Cheers, Bob.
