Exceeds expectations in every way!

I had no idea when I ordered this that it would be so well manufactured and assembled. The adapter is surprisingly solid and durable, as well as a nearly perfect fit on both the Nikon F lens mount and Canon EOS body mount. There is no wiggling, tilting, rotating, or movement of any sort when a lens is attached. I was easily able to attach any number of older Nikon lenses to my 30D body, with no snags whatsoever. The focusing (although only manual) yields excellent (let me emphasize, excelle...

I had no idea when I ordered this that it would be so well manufactured and assembled. The adapter is surprisingly solid and durable, as well as a nearly perfect fit on both the Nikon F lens mount and Canon EOS body mount. There is no wiggling, tilting, rotating, or movement of any sort when a lens is attached. I was easily able to attach any number of older Nikon lenses to my 30D body, with no snags whatsoever. The focusing (although only manual) yields excellent (let me emphasize, excellent!) images, just as sharp as any equivalent lens made for the EOS system. I am thoroughly impressed with this product, and would suggest it to anyone with a large collection of Nikon lenses who wishes to use them in an EOS digital or film environment. It absolutely satisfies that need. The last point that must be made is the advantage to this specific product over other manufacturers. The premium is, quite frankly, unnecessary. Stop reading and add this to your cart!

TERRIBLE

I bought this converter to use Nikon lenses on the Canon 5D, but it causes the lens to wobble and is not made well. Also my 70-200 Nikkor does not fit on this adapter, the lens I wish to use for video. The 5D is not a good camera, being hard to adjust manually and is "noisy" in shadows. The Nikon D700 is better, but does not shoot video. I returned this converter.

works as advertised

By

Sturdy construction. Does what it is supposed to do - adapts Nikon F lenses to the Canon EOS body. Adorama's price was the lowest, but the item seems like it should cost less.

Solid performance

By

Works well with my old Nikkor 24mm 2.8 on a Canon T3i. It's a little difficult to get off of the lens, but I don't plan on taking it off too often. The interface with the camera is tight, with no play. This is a small lens, so I can't speak to how it would work on something larger.

I would buy this product again

By

I use this product on a 30 year old Nikon 400mm telephoto with a Canon EOS body. I was very surprised how well it works and the pictures I got. I thought I was going to get rid of that lens, glad I didn't and glad I found the adapter on your web site. Thanks Adorama

NIce Build Quality, but a little Wiggly

By

Not a bad adapter, once you've adjusted the spring tension manually. Otherwise, there's a good deal of twist play in the lens (which makes follow focus impossible.) Adorama should check the tolerances and make sure that these are rock solid before sending them out. The units are nicely machined and look great and are definitely a step above the HK Ebay specials, but could be improved through testing.

Disappointed...

By

I had high hopes for this product, but was a little skeptical after seeing the price... And sure enough, my negative feeling came true immediately after I seated a lens on the camera. It doesn't lock securely... it has a sloppy "play" feel to it. Which, in turn, gives me 50/50 chance of being in focus. So, if you like those odds, then go for it! Me, I'm looking elsewhere for a more reliable product.

Works perfectly for manual focus lenses

By

I don't know why this is giving some people problems with focus, unless it's the lens. It should be a simple matter of lengthening the flange-to-focal-length distance by 2.5mm, and this measures exactly that by my calipers. I.e. it is accurately spaced. I do wish it was a little cheaper. I also ordered a Contax > EOS adapter, similar build, same mfgr (Fotodiox)and it cost half as much. Maybe the machining is more complicated? Not much else to say about this item - it is basically just a fancy bushing.

You get what you pay for

By

Well it works, in that you can attach a Nikon lens to a Canon body, in my case a Rebel XSI. However, infinity focus is NOT where it should be, thus you cannot simply rack the focus ring to infinity and expect you image to be in focus. It is badly out of focus on infinity, and you must stop the ring prior to the infinity symbol to have sharp focus. It's also a bit loose and jams the aperture ring at times. I am able to make it work, and focus, using the Live View on the XSI. Curious to see how the more expensive ones fare in comparison.

No better than cheap [...] adapters

By

I purchased this because the cheap $10 adapter I bought off [...] focused a bit PAST INFINITY, meaning if you want to achieve infinity focus in your image, you actually need to set the focus on the lens a little SHORT of infinity. Turns out this adapter has the same problem. It also has an almost identical build quality to the cheap [...] adapters. Additionally, it's a bit misleading to advertise this as an Adorama branded adapter when it's actually a Fotodiox adapter. Had I known this from the start I would not have purchased it, as I was already aware that Fotodiox adapters focus a bit past infinity.Bottom line is, a cheap $10 [...] adapter provides equal performance for a fraction of the price.

Not as good as hoped

By

I'm glad that the other architectural photographer had good results from his but my adapter on a 28PC produced images with complex geometric problems that makes it useless to me. I borrowed another adapter from a friend and it was much better. Of course it cost five times what this one does. It will be ok for most types of photography but architectural work is extremely critical and my adapter did not cut the mustard.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have body Nicon D3100 and lens canon EF 80 -200mm - need Adapter?
Richard C  It's ok, a little tricky to get off. Release spring mechanism could be a little larger.
Jason C  I have a EOS REBEL T3, will this work?
DAVID E  It depends upon what you mean by work. You can mount Nikkor lenses on your Canon camera. My old fixed focus 50mm and 85mm lenses produce fine images on my T1i. There is NO automation. You must operate fully manually - 'M' mode. There is no autofocus, no stabilization. I use these lenses for astrophotography - fixed F# and minutes-long exposures, so manual is just fine.
Katherine B  I just bought this and was able to attach it well, no wobble, focus seems fine. Now I want to take it off and I'm having difficulty. It came off the camera but I can't get it off the lens. I know Nikon mounts opposite of most lenses. Which way do I turn it, clockwise or counter? It feels really tight and I'm afraid to force it.
MARK J  The small tab is a black metal piece on the inside of the adapter. It is connected to a spring. While you may not want to buy more adapter, it is a bit of trouble to undo. I only have one adapter.
