Contax - EOS adapter problem - Photography

I have the Contax EOS adapter manufactured by ZOERK. The adapter exhibits a real problem: it can't hold tight certain lenses- and most important is the 85 1.4 PLanar (German.) The lens can easily slip away from the adapter-body. Now I have to look for a new adpater because that particualr lens is awsome, plus, I'm not impressed by Canon lenses. I was wondering if anybody ues that particular lens on EOS, and hence, which adapter? regards to all, J....

    I have the Contax EOS adapter manufactured by ZOERK. The adapter
    exhibits a real problem: it can't hold tight certain lenses- and most
    important is the 85 1.4 PLanar (German.) The lens can easily slip away
    from the adapter-body. Now I have to look for a new adpater because
    that particualr lens is awsome, plus, I'm not impressed by Canon
    lenses. I was wondering if anybody ues that particular lens on EOS,
    and hence, which adapter?

    Why not ask Zoerk to fix it? They aren't exactly a large-volume
    outfit, and might be interested to hear about your problem. For $249,
    it ought to work!

    I did and they promissed replacement. I want to get another adapter
    anyway, so I was wondering if anybody uses the Planar 85 1.4 on EOS?
    How effective is the locking system of ther other two adapters in the
    market?
