M42 to Contax

has someone already used a M42 lens with an adapter to Contax/Yashica? In this case, do you know if focusing can be to infinity?

Thank you,

I have several of the adapters and they allow infinity focus.

Thank you very much Bob!

It's surprising, because flange back on Contax (45.5 mm) is longer than that of M42 (45.46 mm)...

I was talking about flange distance, not flange back, sorry!
