My friend will send me Zeiss-Contax Planar 50/1.4 lens. I think it is C/Y mount. How can I use it on my Pentax ist?

No answer from me, but I's be interested in knowing if this is possible. I have a 1980's generation 50 mm Yashica lens which took very sharp images on my Yashica FX-D film camera. Right now it is sitting in a box in my basement. Would love to be able to use it with my DL if there is an adaptor that would work. Jay

If it is a standard M42 mount, there are plenty of adapters out there to K-mount. I've read it is highly suggested to use the official Pentax one to ensure compatibility - but I have no first hand experience.

You can't. I had one. So far there are no adapters for it for Pentax. But there are adapters to use it on Canon EOS. But they are very expensive. Try Cameraquest.com and others by looking on the web.

I have (3) Carl Zeiss Lenses(Contax MM mount)which I would love to use on my DS-if anyone knows how I would be very interested.

So you can modify your body or you can modify your lens.
