Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 T* Planar made for Contax/Yashica

Sorry for the newbie question but I dug around and couldnt find the answer in the forum. I apologize in advance if this has been answered already.

I have an old Contax 139 with a Zeiss 50mm f/1.4 T* Planar and was wondering if it is possible to use this lens on my K-X? Do I need some special adapter or does the lens mount need to be modified.

Any help would be appreciated.

You'll have to modify the mount. This forum has a number of courageous "mount-changers", I'm certain one of 'em will chime in on how to do it!

I don't belong to the courageous mount-changers (yet), but for basic info what's needed you should check out this site.

Good luck!

A Google search would turn this up:

Zeiss Contax lens for Pentax cameras

There are cheaper versions on Ebay.
