Product Description

The Fotodiox Nikon-MFT Lens adapter allows you to place your favorite Nikon lens on your MFT 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.

Fotodiox Pro Lens Mount Adapter, Nikon Lens to Micro Four Thirds Cameras - Works great on Panasonic GH3 with Nikon glass.

The lens release lever doesn't seem very robust, but I am a careful worker and have not had a problem with it.

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'T

The 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.

Be Gentle and Think and this adapter is fine for connecting your 4/3 Camera to Nikon Lens.
1st remember Nikon lens twist on going counter clockwise. The opposite direction of the 4/3 Camera & Canon Lensmounts.
Look at the little lever and slide it and watch the little pin retract. You need to hold the slide when you attach your Nikon lens. Make sure you line up the dots of the lens and adapter and then make sure the pin clicks into it's hole. I then attach the adapter with the lens attached to the body of my 4/3 Panasonic G2 camera. You will have no
auto focus and the aperture is also manually controlled by the ring on the lens. Just never get impatient and think about the sliding lever and make sure you are turning the lens and adapter in the correct direction.

Seeing all of the negative reviews gave me pause for concern, but I went ahead and ordered this adapter anyway. I'm glad I did. The copy that I received was well machined and well finished. It fit my 4/3 body (E-PL1) and 8 different Nikkor manual focus lenses perfectly. No problems mounting or demounting the Nikkor lenses with the adapter. No excess play. All of my lenses focused at infinity.

The only thing that kept me from rating this adapter 5-star is that the interior is a smooth gloss finish. It would be a truly excellent product had the manufacturer made the interior with ribbing/matte finish to reduce the chance of flair.

This is easily the best $35 I've spent on camera stuff in a long time. I have a large collection of older Nikon lenses, and this adapter makes it possible to use some of my old favorites on my Olympus E-PL2.

There are a couple of caveats you should know about:

1.) There is no auto-focus when using this adapter, so it works best with lenses that have a decent amount of "feel" to the focus ring. Some later-model Nikon AF lenses have very loose focusing mechanisms (so that they present less resistance to the in-body focusing motor) but they can be twitchy when used as manual focus lenses.

2.) You must stop the lens down to the desired aperture before shooting. This may darken the image in the viewfinder / LCD screen. This is necessary to get an accurate exposure reading, since the camera has no idea what the lens' maximum aperture is, and it has no way to set the aperture, anyway. Those of us who grew up with old-school Pentax and early Nikon cameras know this as "stop down metering". I used the camera in "P" mode -- I set the aperture, and the camera adjusted the exposure accordingly. You can tweak the exposure using the +- adjustment just as you would a normal Oly lens.

3.) No operation with "G" lenses or AF-S lenses. Sorry, but this is just a mounting adapter, and it makes no attempt to connect the camera's electronics to the lens electronics.

Caveats aside, I tried this with a few of my favorite Nikon lenses and was thrilled with the results, including the 50 mm f/1.4 AF, 60 mm f/2.8 AF, and 85 mm f/1.8 AF. All three produced sharp images with excellent detail, even at the corners.

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.
