Customer Reviews

Exactly what you think it it.This is an inexpensive adapter that allows you to mate a dumb (non-electronic) Nikon/Nikkor lens with a micro four thirds (MFT, M4/3) lens mount.I am using two of these adapters with 20 - 30 year old Nikon glass and a new Panasonic AF100 HD video camera. I am very pleased with the ease of mounting both the lenses to the adapter and the adapter to the camera body.I have used cheap adapters in the past to connect Nikon lenses to cameras such as the Canon 7D and Canon 5DmkII. These MFT adapters are vastly superior, as I do not feel that I am about to break them in half. When adapting my lenses to the Canon mounts I purchased an adapter for every lens because excessive connection/disconnection would quickly destroy the adapter. These particular adapters are much sturdier and more well made. While I purchased two of them, I now see that I could have gotten by with only one. However, at such an excellent low price it is prudent to have a spare in reserve for critical shooting.BOTTOM LINE: I am very pleased. Unless you have newer Nikon glass that requires an intelligent interface, I do not see why you would choose a more expensive option than this.5Works as advertisedThere is not much that previous reviewers have missed, but I'll put in my opinion anyway - it may help solidify the star rating numbers.Note that I use the optional electronic view finder on my E-PL1 and all comments are based on the photos being taken through that view finder. I have not used the adapter with the view screen built into the camera body.Having read the reviews below I was already aware that releasing the lens from the adapter requires sliding the release button backwards towards the adapter, not downwards, so I've had no issues with releasing the lens from the adapter or the adapter from my Olympus E-PL1.However, mounted on the camera there is a very small amount of play between the adapter and the camera body. I may have gotten an example that is at the extreme range of quality control for fit. The amount of play is extremely small and does not seem to affect the photos, but I've reduced the ranking from five to four stars; even an inexpensive adapter should be a snug fit. Not enough of an issue to return the gadget, or to recommend others not to buy.(As an aside, the Panasonic 20mm 1.7 with its metal mount is VERY snug on the E-PL1 body, while the "kit" lenses having plastic mounts go on smoothly and not as snugly as the Panasonic).Using a Nikon 50mm 1.8 and a Tamron 90mm 2.8 with the adapter has been a treat; as noted in earlier reviews there is no anti-shake or auto-focus; using in aperture priority appears to be spot on for exposure levels. The magnification button (for focusing) on the camera body worked with both lenses. (A second aside - the aperture control ring on the Nikon "nifty fifty" is nowhere near as good a "feel" as the ring on the Tamron. Also the manual focusing on the Tamron is a better, more solid feel to it. Of course the Tamron costs quite a bit more than the $125 Nikon lens).(A third aside - a split screen focusing aid is missed; my first SLR was an Olympus Pen FT purchased in 1969 and the feel of the E-PL1 with the manual focus lenses is somewhat reminiscent of that camera. A split focus screen would enhance focusing - and those old memories for me).The adapter is relatively inexpensive, and pretty much works as advertised. Recommended for those who already own such Nikon mount lenses (remember, the lens must have an aperture ring, there's no electronic connection to the camera at all).EDIT: I should have noted, there is no lens bag that comes with the adapter - the owner is on his/her own for providing storage. The device comes in a plastic bag inside a cardboard box. As noted in earlier reviews, there are no instructions either. You get the box, the bag, and the adapter.4Performs as expected.I own both this Nikon F mount adapter and the Canon FD equivalent.Sure. You can spend much, much more money for an adapter which is built far better than this. And yes, if you are mounting a lens which costs over $1000 or weighs more than a few ounces (or both), I would highly advise spending the extra cash on something with an immaculate fit and finish and more reinforcement at the mount.Personally, I purchased these Fotodiox adapters to mount my moderately priced primes to a camera which cost me all of $185. If I wanted to get serious, I wouldn't have purchased a MFT body in the first place. So my expectations were low and were met by both Fotodiox adapters.That being said, I do have to give this (and the FD version, by proxy) 4 out of 5 stars for one minor design flaw. Both adapters allow the lens to focus past infinity. Luckily, this can be corrected without too much difficulty, if you find that it irritates you enough.... http://www.amazon.com/review/R2KWNX9ODAR3J1/ref=cm_cr_pr_perm?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B003EAVUMK&linkCode=&nodeID=&tag=This Nikon adapter feels slightly more solidly made than the FD version, but it also lacks the FD's ring for opening the aperture while focusing (i.e. the lens is always stopped down when mounted), and of course everything is totally manual (no contacts between lens and body at all) -- so no G lenses. Mounting and unmounting on the Nikon side of the adapter is smooth and nice (unlike the FD, which can be a bit fiddly).4Great adapter at a great price!I recently bought a Panasonic GH5, so I bought this adapter to try some of my old skool Nikon glass on it, and it worked perfectly! I slapped on my old Nikon 50mm/1.8 and it worked great (manual focus only, of course). For those who complained that they can't remove their lens from this adapter, just pull the little round metal knob back. That releases the pin that locks the lens in place. It would've been nice if they included SOME documentation with this adapter!5Good adapter, but has a learning curveAt first I had an issue with this adapter. I couldn't get a Nikon lens mounted on it; it was super stiff and resistant to the lens. You think you might be forcing it too hard, enough to cause damage. I got in touch with Fotodiox who kindly (and quickly) sent me a replacement. Using that, I figured out the problem. You need to exert extra strong force to rotate the lens around so it seats properly. IE, you need to crank the thing. Why Fotodiox doesn't provide a simple instruction sheet explaining this, I don't know. You know, "Strong pressure may have to be applied to mount lens." That's why I'm giving 4 stars instead of 5. Also, Kudos to Fotodiox for the quick responses to my issue.4Cheap Fun This adapter will work with any Nikkor lens that has an aperture ring (non-AI, AI, and D-type). If you want to use G-type lenses, it can be done with a different adapter, but not with this one. And of course, all lenses(even AF)have to be focused manually, since there is no electronic connection between lens and camera.The fit to both the camera body and the lenses I've tried so far has been adequate. There is just enough rotational play between the adapter and both the lens and body as to be detectable, but the fit is snug enough that when I turn the aperture and focus rings, neither the lens nor the mount move. The lens release lever doesn't seem very robust, but I am a careful worker and have not had a problem with it. Infinity focus is actually just past infinity, but this is not a problem for me.If I had to pay $150+ for an adapter, I wouldn't bother. I'd spend the money on another micro 4/3 lens instead. But at this price, I couldn't resist getting the ability to do something as perverse as pairing an ancient Nikkor 50mm/f1.4 non-AI lens with my tiny Olympus E-PM1... 4Fantastic way to couple older Nikon F mount lenses to Micro 4/3rds camera body.This is a fantastic product. It is a simple adapter however, you will effectively doubling the focal length on a micro 4/3rs camera. I tried this out with a 600mm Sigma F-8.0 reflector lens and it yielded a 1200 mm effective focal length-like a telescope. Incredible reach. Next I added on an old Tokink Doubler for 2:1, which turned a 600mm focal length lens into a 1200mm focal length lens, but on a micor 4/3rd camera, you double that again to a whopping 2400mm focal length. You lose two f stops in the process, so it's only good in bright light or for long exposures. The only problem at such focal lengths is any breeze will make it wobble. My old tripod was a bit to shaky for it. I am tempted to build a concrete mount for it and try it on star gazing and long exposures. Great fun. Next I tried it on a macro rail and installed a Nikkor 50mm normal lens for 35mm camera. So I had effectively a 100mm micro 4/3rds macro. I was able to blow up a small pin to an enormous size. I have several other old Nikon F mount lenses to try next. For the price it can't be beat. A Meta bones Speedbooster would work better, but at 20 times the price, I think I'll keep this one.I photo: adapter on on the extreme end.5Excellent investment.Just received adapter this afternoon. Wasted no time fitting it on Oly OMD5II with attached Nikkor 135mm 2.8, essentially transforming it to 270mm. The focusing ring on this lens is somewhat stiff and can be fatiguing. The MF assist on the OMD (assigned to a function button) did fairly well but on 1:1 viewing about 30% images not perfectly focused. Not the adapter's fault there. Those in focus came out excellent.The feel of these old Nikkors - I also have the 200mm f4 - on a 4:3 body is fantastic as if made for each other. Certainly a better shooting experience than same lens on my D750.Personally I see no need to buy the more expensive adapters. At this price I'll get one for each lens permanently attached, just need the Oly rear lens cap.5It Works! Easy to use once you learn this secret.I've personally used this adapter on several micro-four-thirds cameras. I can verify that it works on the Olympus E-P1 and E-PL1. It also works on the Panasonic GF1.To mount the adapter on the GF1, for example, line up the red dot on the REAR of the adapter with the dot on your camera's lens mount. Then twist clockwise (when you're facing the front of the camera). This is no different than mounting any other lens to the GF1.Then mount your lens to the adapter by lining up the dot on your lens to the dot on the FRONT of the adapter. Or, you can mount the lens to the adapter first - it makes no difference.On the GF1, you'll need to go to the last page of the Custom menu and enable "SHOOT W/O LENS." Otherwise, the LCD will display an error. Other cameras may require some similar setting.HOW DO I GET THE %$#@!&! THING OFF?!Now, here's the secret. The little silver joystick-shaped knob on the adapter is the lens release. It only moves in one direction: backwards towards the camera. So, when you want to remove your lens from the adapter, pull the joystick back toward the rear of the adapter. That releases the little mounting pin on the flange of the adapter. Now, you can turn your lens and remove it. As soon as you let go of the joystick, it springs back to the forward position. Simple, but not documented.Remove the adapter from the camera the same way you would any lens: push the camera's lens release button and turn the adapter counter-clockwise.WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'TThe lens has to have its own aperture ring, so forget about Nikon G lenses. Autofocus and VR does not work with any lens: there are no electrical connections between the camera and lens when this adapter is in place. Auto exposure DOES work.I successfully used an older Nikon 105mm Macro lens (not VR) and got very sharp photos. I also used my F-mount Lensbaby 2.0 successfully.The Lensbaby 3G does not work very well on this adapter. The adapter lens mount pin doesn't stick out far enough to lock the Lensbaby onto the adapter. You can use the 3G, but it will probably keep falling off as it unscrews itself.Another lens that doesn't work is the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8. No matter what I did, I could not get this lens to focus properly with this adapter. It would have been cool to have that massive lens mounted on the tiny GF1, but no dice.To wrap it up, the Fotodiox adapter works and the price is right. Buy it now.PhotoCitizen4Excellent construction and useA superb adapter, very nicely machined, easy to use. On the camera end it twists into my Olympus OMD (EM10 MkII) with a solid satisfying click. Similarly on mounting my Sigma 70-300 mm F-mount zoom on the other end. Focusing is perfect: a hair within the lens's infinity stop. Dismounting is instant, either end; but for the lens you do have to press the little lever back to unlock the locating pin. On the micro-4/3, that lens is the equivalent of 140-600 mm, and very sharp on a beanbag or tripod. [In use: set your f-stop manually (after focusing wide open), and then adjust shutter speed for correct exposure.] I also have a Fotodiox T-ring for the same camera (for mounting on an 80-mm refractor telescope): just as solid.5This is the BEST Nikkor to MFT adapter, hands down.Fotodiox mounts have had a mixed history in the past, but I can tell you this mount for Nikkor F works flawlessly. Mounts to my GH5 smoothly, the lenses mount perfectly with no play or slop, and infinity focus is spot-on. Totally well designed there's no reason to spend big $$$ with Novoflex or Metabones.Keep in mind this is a PASS THROUGH adapter, not a speed-booster type, so there's no degradation or impact on image sharpness or color.5
