Great adapter for large apertures


from Mexico  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

This adapter is Top Notch. Is all made of metal and fits perfectly well on the Nex-5 and on the Nikon glasses. The adapter has an aperture ring, so you can control the aperture even if your glass does not have a dedicated aperture ring, like the G lenses. I tested it with a Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G AF-S ED VR II and with a Nikon 50mm f/1.4G. The adapter worked great on the 50mm glass... its just great. But using it with the 18-200 was not... on smaller apertures the image is too dark and you have to compensate with larger shutter speed numbers and greater ISO´s... even a tripod is recommended to avoid blurred images I think this adapter is great if you want to use lenses that are in the range of F1.4 to F2 .... maybe up to 3.5 if you want to operate your camera without a tripod, but that would not have sense as the Nex-5 stronger point its portability. Its a great buy but only on larger apertures.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  I have a nikon mount tokina 11-16, but the aperture is currently stopped all the way down. I do not have a nikon still camera to open the iris. Will this adapter slide the mechanical lever on the lens to the wide open position when I install it, thus allowing me to us the iris on the adapter? Or, do I have to set the lens wide open on a camera first, remove it and begin using the adapter with iris control that way?
KRIS W  Hi. I use this adapter with a Zeiss lens and it does seem that the adapter ring mechanically engages the lens aperture directly. So I believe (but can't be sure) that this should work for you. When I use this adapter/lens combo the lens aperture ring is stopped all the way down to f22. Then I use the aperture ring on the adapter to open and close the lens aperture. It is not exact as you don't know what aperture you are actually shooting with - this is due to the fact that the adapter simply has a + / 0 ring that smoothly opens and closes the iris rather than giving you specific set stops. I hope this is helpful. Good luck.
Shopper  if this work for AF-S nikkor lens?
RICHARD B  AF-S just means that the focus motor is in the lens instead of in the camera body. If you look closely at the adapter there are no electrical contacts. Yes the lens will work but you must focus manually. The blue ring lets you adjust the f-stop on G lenses.
Shopper  this adapter can use for Nikon D90 auto focus?
STEVEN W  This adaptor does not go on a Nikon camera. This goes on the Sony NEX camera and then you can put any Nikon lens onto this adaptor, thus allowing you to take pictures on the Sony NEX with the Nikon lens. Your question suggests that you were thinking you put this adaptor onto your Nikon D90, but it goes on the Sony camera. When using Nikon lenses on this adaptor, you lose all auto functions, you must manually focus, no f-stop data shows up on the Sony camera, and no EXIF data is recorded onto the memory card. Although you can manually change the aperture by turning the blue ring, it doesn't register as individual f-stops (which would have been a nice feature). The ability to autofocus Nikon lenses would have required Novoflex to have electrical contacts on this adaptor that tapped into proprietary Nikon technology, which they probbly don't have rights to.
