p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Anyone using adapter for Nikon G mount?


I have a Nikon 28mm 1.8G and Tamron 90mm Macro that I was getting ready to list, but was curious if anyone had any specific experience with some of the nikon adapters, particularly autofocus?

85 1.8 and 70-200 4 and 2.8 both autofocus slow but ok with the Commlite adapter.

I am using Fotodiox Pro manual adapter with aperture controls, not too expensive but works great, I have 20+ Nikon lenses and depend on occasion, I have used most of the lenses on this adaptor, haven't experienced noticeable quality drop so far. I also have tried out the Vello autofocus adaptor for Nikon to E mount, it works sometime but the stress it puts on autofocus motor is terrible and I would not recommend it.

Thank you. I think I'm going to go the Fotodiox route for now.

Got the fotodiox and didnt like the aperture control and hated the experience. Got the Commlite to use it with a A7R to manual focus. Now I enjoy using nikon lenses in the camera

I agree with Javier on Aperture control of the Fotodiox, not too user friendly and does require some attention but it gets the job done. However, I do prefer anyother adapter with better control. I have invested quite a bit in Sony and Zeiss native lenses so the use of the adapter is minimal now.

I would recommend the commlite in manual focus mode. You still get full lens data, vr, and manual focus is a breeze.

Thanks everyone. I found a novoflex on the boards I purchased for about half new.
