Contax G are rangefinders no?

Contax G lens can be used on m4/3 mount if you find the adapter. Not available in singapore. You need to order from overseas. Look for Contax G to m4/3 adapter.

E3 is 4/3 mount, not m4/3. You are out of luck bro.

Thanks Daredevil 123,
Contax G2 is rangefinder.
What is the different between 4/3 mount and m 4/3?
Please enlighten. Bought this E3 in early 09 after recommanded by a member from the tour group and have not use it ( too heavy to carry during trips - regret :-( )

Ya. My dad has the Contax G1. with 2 lenses I think. 45/2 and 90/2.8

Micro Four Thirds shares the image sensor size and specification with the established Four Thirds system, designed for digital single-lens reflex cameras. Unlike Four Thirds, Micro Four Thirds does not provide space for a mirror and a pentaprism, allowing smaller bodies to be designed (including a smaller lens mount, incompatible with Four Thirds lens mount).
quoted from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Micro_Four_Thirds_system

m4/3 is a smaller mount than the 4/3 mount. E3 is a 4/3 mount. I have seen 4/3 to m4/3 adapter. But never seen any adapter the over way round.
