Excellent adapter for the price!

By

If you want to use your neglected mf Nikon lenses, made the way Nikon used to make them, then this adapter will mate nicely with your NEX-6,7,5n, etc. If this becomes a favorite shooting mode, you may want to upgrade to the $250. German made model--on the other hand this may prove to be durable enough, maybe with slight "play" with the heavier lenses. So far so good with the primes I use. Recommended. Thanks Adorama for branding useful, quality products, and pricing them reasonably!

Great for the price!

Nice adapter! The only thing it needs is a tripod collar but you can usually buy one separate for your lens type. Light weight.

It's Like Buying A New Camera for [$]!

By

Ordinarily, I use my Sony NEX-5 for street work and candid photography. The 16mm f/2.8 that came with the unit as a kit works just fine, but I needed something that would allow me to shoot more effectively at night. This Adorama adapter, priced at [$] seemed like a good choice for getting my Nikon f/1.8 D lenses attached to my NEX-5. My only real complaint so far is that it doesn't work with the Nikkor G lenses, but in combination with D lenses, it works with no problem. NOTE! Be certain to change your NEX default shooting settings so that the shutter releases without the lens attached. If you do not change this setting you will see an error message that says the lens is not recognized by the camera, and it will not work. Once you adjust to working with manual focusing you will see very impressive results, and possibly even experience a little reluctance to return to auto focus. Very satisfied with this adapter so far!

Questions about this item:

alma s  Will it work with a Nikon DX SWM ED? That is a lens i used in my Nikon D70, 55-200mm
PAUL A  Any F-mount lens can be attached using this adapter. Be aware however that autofocus and VR will not work. You'll need to focus manually.
alma s  Is the lens in question an F mount? I don't know anything about these obscure lens nomenclatures Thank you for any further clarification, I need it.

Allen G  Does this item have a feature which can actuate the diaphragm leaver on the lenses? The picture seems to show a moveable ring around the part.
ROBERT G  This is not actually a rotatable ring; it is merely a knurled gripppy ring to assist to in mounting/demounting the adapter. The lens does not maintain maximum aperture when mounted to the adapter; the aperture closes down to whatever you set the aperture. It's not unlike my introduction to SLRs, the Contax S. Yes, there was not only time when we had no autofocus, we didn't even have "automatic" lenses. The Contax S's lenses had a locking ring to set to the desired aperture. You opened up to maximum aperture to focus, turned the ring to set detented aperture to take the picture. Welcome back to basic photography!
Allen G  Nikon G type lenses don't have manual aperture control. Without camera actuation they default (spring) full open.
