Now you can use inexpensive old lenses with your NEX
on October 22, 2013
I used to have Nikon DSLR until I sold it. I kept some of the lenses around, and good thing I did.
The adapter's mount screw quality is pretty decent. The lens fits perfectly with minimum effort. In comparison, I bought another brand on eBay which had more features but it did not have the same precision. Unlike this adapter, once you put the lens on that one it was very hard to take it off.
They are cheap enough so that you can buy one for each of your Nikon lenses, and leave it connected. Obviously you will need E mount caps to close the backs.
I wish it had a tripod mount. If you are putting any heavy lenses on, I would not mount the camera on a tripod - I would just hold it by the lens to avoid any excessive force being applied to the mount screw.
Oh, and don't forget to setup your camera properly before using this since there won't be any auto-focusing, metering, or any type of communication between the camera and your lenses. (Release w/o Lens: Enabled, MF Assist: On, Focus peaking: On)
