The lens has had great test reviews in the magazines, although I 
have no experience with it.

The cost of a conversion has been excessive,  more than the cost of a M6

Unless you can get a great deal on the conversion, it would be much
cheaper, as well as more versatile, if you just kept a Contax body for
that lens.
