Product Description

The Fotodiox FD/FL- Nikon Lens adapter allows you to place your favorite Canon FD/FL lens on your Nikon camera body. This adapter gives you the ability to use your irreplaceable prime lens and saves you the cost of purchasing new lenses. The adapters are precision made to insure the perfect fit. The lens will fit physically, but the automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, and other functions will not operate correctly while using this adapter. In this case, "stop-down mode" will need to be used when metering, since the lens does not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot in manual or aperture priority mode. Infinity focusing is guaranteed.

Customer Reviews

As far as I'm concerned, this adapter was a waste of money.
Nature Lover
The adapter is very well made. the lens is tightly secured to the camera, as it should be.

I have 5 canon FD lenses: Kalimar 28mm wide angle, Canon 50mm, Vivitar 55mm macro, Tokina 70-210mm zoom and a Vivitar 400mm telephoto.
At the time of this writing I have purchased 2 Fotodiox FD-NIKON adapters, used in all the lenses above and I really happy with them. I am buying a third one soon.

Is it worth? It depends:

If you have a couple of old FD lens, the adapter is a small price to pay to put your lenses back in use, but if you have to buy the lenses and the adapter, you might check the price of a used Nikon lens first.

These lenses are great for video as they have aperture rings and they create a creamy look to your footage.

You will lose some light (around 0.6 stop) and there is also a crop factor to consider (1.26). If you are using on a D7000 (1.5 crop factor) your 50mm will become closer to a 100mm.

This crop factor might be an advantage as you can have a nice telephoto. My Canon 50mm became a nice telephoto with a very thin depth of field.

Please consider getting an adapter for each lens, as moving them between lenses is tedious and time consuming and the screws start getting loose after a couple of changes (you can tighten then).

If the Locked -Open dial on the adapter is on the open position, you can change the aperture to your heart's content. If it is locked, the lens stays at its widest aperture. I usually set it to locked mode prior of installation and then change it to open and leave it alone forever. If you cannot change the aperture after you installed the adapter, just take it out, change the mode and put it back again.

You will notice that the image might be soft on a lens' widest opening and you can fix that by closing a couple of F stops.

Bought this adapter to use Canon lenses on my Nikon body. Works great! Don't forget, it will crop the image on a D40 and D3000. Wide angle and fisheye lenses may disappoint you. All other focal length lenses work great with the adapter. For manual mode only. It's a sturdy and solid adapter.

This product works, with some things in mind. First off, know what your getting into before you get excited. Its not going to take your fd lens and make it a perfect use lens, you will be "limited" depending on how you look at it. Metering, is not possible (unless you have a nikon that you can manually put the aperture settings in (i have d40 and cannot do so)), second, your lens is going to be alot different than it would be on your 35mm. I know theres a 1.5x difference between the look on your 35mm and digital, but the adapter I think may even make it more. I have tested it with a FD Tamron 28mm lens, a Promaster 100-200mm Macro, and a 100-200mm zoom with 2x teleconverter. The product works as described and as pointed out in the other review, the aperture lock is not self explanatory, but useful once you realize that what to do. I will attempt to post pictures another day. All in all, it took 3 lenses that my grandfather had passed onto me, and allowed me to make the more useful (I dont shoot 35mm often), but like I said, eliminate your expectations and realize that $40 cost, will save you some money instead of buying other lenses, but your old fd lenses, just wont replace a real nikon cpu lens, but you will definitely make it worth your while rather than selling the old fd lenses.

Delivery fast, came as expected, fotodiox is great and will do business with them in the future.

A friend of mine had bought this lens: Nikon 35mm f/1.8G AF-S DX Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras and raved about how good it was in low light situations, with the cost of depth of field of course. That lens, however is expensive at its retail price and sold out everywhere. About 18 years ago I had inherited my Dad's old camera equipment, much of which he had inherited from HIS father. I noticed that among the equipment were 2 Canon lenses, one of which was a 50 mm 1.4 aperture lens. When I found this adapter I thought Great, I can spend a fraction of the price and get a lens that can help me get great portraits of my daughter in low light (Like my living room).. of course I wasn't expecting it to be as good as the Native 1.8 Nikon lens, and I'd have to do everything Manual, but I'm up for some experimentation.

I got the adapter and was able to connect the lens to the camera no problem. I immediately set the aperture to 1.4 and started snapping pictures and learned that manually trying to focus something at 1.4 was nearly impossible... I think this is partially true with any 1.4 lens, but I think the conversion made it even more difficult to focus. I don't know if this is this product's fault or just an overall downside of the conversion. With the Aperture set to about 2.8 I was able to get things to focus fairly easily. The next thing I noticed however, was really disappointing. The lens doesn't seem to let in nearly as much light as I thought it SHOULD let in. I'm guessing this is a negative side effect of using a canon lens on a Nikon body though and not the fault of this product. Anyway, a photo taken with the same settings and a 5.
