The Metabones Nikon G Mount Lens to Sony E-mount / NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black) features a strong leaf-spring structure that strengthens the adapter-lens connection and ensures tightness of the lens in order to reduce wear and prevent focus errors and optical alignment issues from appearing. It uses matte-black treatment to keep internal reflection to a minimum in order to maintain the maximum optical quality possible with the lens.
The Metabones Nikon G Mount Lens to Sony E-mount / NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black) follows this tradition of uncompromising precision, robust build quality and outstanding finish.

I've purchased two and both had the same problem... the retainer springs block any/all of my Nikon G lenses from mounting securely. My first try I it was just tight and turned the lens with some force resulting in a bent.. actually smashed.. the retainer spring (the little metal clip inside the adapter that creates tension to keep the lenses from wiggling). Returned and bought a new one thinking it was probably an isolated incident and things would be different on my second try. Same problem. Called a friend who recently purchased this item and he was experiencing the same thing. He was able to bend the springs a bit and get his lenses to mount but was very unhappy with how hard it was to mount/unmount his lenses. I have brand new Nikon G lenses and this adapter seems like it will either damage my lens or damage itself if I apply the pressure necessary to get the lens to turn into position to lock. After reading reviews online and looking at B&H's recent ratings on the product, I'm convinced that Metabones is selling a batch of defective adapters. I'm confused as to why the company doesn't have better quality control... like actually mounting a lens as a final step of the production line?? Call my crazy.
Works as it was made, my only complaint, it will not allow Auto Focus. They make one for Canon that allows AF but not for Nikon?
I use this adapter on my Sony A7R. This adapter feels extremely solid and well machined. The connection to my Nikon lenses is tight; tight enough that it feels like a part of the lens once it is on. Be aware that this is not a smart adapter, so you must control the aperture with the adapter's aperture ring and your pics EXIF won't display any aperture data.
Solid. Focuses to infinity. Nice amount of travel in the iris control. The arca Swiss mounting point on the collar really helps with longer lenses.
