This is a solid adapter!

I tried it using a Nikon 50mm 1.4, the older model, and it not only takes gorgeous photographs with the E-P3, it also looks awesome.

A superb range of Micro Four Thirds lenses from Panasonic and Olympus already makes this camera system optically very versatile.

This adapter is clearly well-made (in Japan, despite the classic German brand). As shown in my attached customer photos, the solid and well-finished construction includes machined metal lens mount and camera mount flanges: a quality feature not found on some cheaper adapters.

Lens and camera fit is slick. As soon as I got it, the first lens I mounted on my Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF1 12.1MP Micro Four-Thirds Interchangeable Lens Digital Camera with LUMIX G 20mm f/1.7 Aspherical Lens was my old f8 500mm Reflex-Nikkor. Amazing: due to the maths of Micro Four Thirds this gives me a compact 1000mm equivalent lens. Document copying and macro work with the 55mm f/3.5 Micro-Nikkor await. There's a bunch of fine old lenses, disused, in black boxes in attics and garages around the world, waiting to be connected to new Micro Four Thirds cameras with this adapter, and adapters for other makes. More lately I have been experimenting with the Reflex-Nikkor on my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2 16.05 MP Live MOS Interchangeable Lens Camera with 3-inch Free-Angle Touch Screen LCD and 14-42mm Hybrid Lens (Black). Some test shots are attached.

The trick with this and other adapters for old lenses to Micro Four Thirds camera bodies is to turn off any camera default for automatic lenses. On the GF1 and GH2, this means getting into the Custom Menu, and turning "on" the option, "shoot w/o lens". That's counter-intuitive, because you do not intend to shoot without a lens -- just without one of the usual fully integrated Micro Four Thirds system lenses.

I bought this adapter so I could use my Nikon lenses on my Olympus E-P3 micro four-thirds camera. It works perfectly.

Just as I was told, I won't be able to use auto-focus, and the camera won't 'read' the lens settings like it will for an Olympus MFT lens. But in manual mode, focusing and adjusting the shutter speed myself, it works beautifully. I tried it using a Nikon 50mm 1.4, the older model, and it not only takes gorgeous photographs with the E-P3, it also looks awesome.

The Voigtlander adapter is built like a prime Nikon lens - metal, solid and built to withstand a nuclear strike. I like that.

If you understand manual mode, and have no fear of setting the len's f-stop and focus, along with the camera's ISO, WB, and shutter speed - get this adapter. If, however, all that intimidates you, fair enough. This adapter will either sit unused, or preferably, it will allow you to push your photography to the next level, by ditching 'iAuto' and learning the intricacies and joys of fully manual photography.

Solid piece of construction. I use it to mount several prime Nikkor lenses on an AF-100 Panasonic Video camera and have not had any problems. Comes on and off smoothly both on the AF100 and when separating the Nikkor lenses. Just wish it was a bit cheaper.

Decent adapter for Nikon lenses for a 4/3's camera. (it works with Pentax as well I believe) I have a Panasonic GF-1 and was curious about hooking up a few telephoto Nikkors to it. Pretty cool. I hooked up my 80-200D..my favorite lens, (no VR) to it and of course have to attach it to a tripod but the combination worked well. Also 85mm 1.4. Super sharp...almost to sharp.. But of course this has nothing to do with the adapter! Or does it? Panasonic doesn't make a fully functional adapter for Nikons...wish they would...just Leicas and contax and Olympus 4/3 lenses..i believe Panasonics adapters offer some auto functionality...check it out yourself. So, with this Voightlander you have no auto focus or recognition of the lens on the camera..so if you are intimidated by manually setting exposure and focus..don't go here. My subject matter is mostly people or static objects so I like narrow depth of field and with a 85 or 80-200 zoom believe me..it's really narrow and background totally out of focus. Nice bokeh!
The adapter seems well made but I'd be careful with your expensive glass..don't force anything...However seems decent..I guess for 180 bucks it should be. There seem to be many available..less and more expensive. For me I generally go with the name brand. In this case it is really just out of curiosity...after all attaching a 3 lb lens to a GF1 seems to defeat the purpose I got the camera for..which was to have something decent for those unplanned photos when out and about. And didn't want to schlep 6 lbs of Nikon with me...the GF1 is a nice discreet piece of equipment and excellent 20mm lens..also got the 45-200..not bad for the money.
I gave the Voightlander 4 stars because it seems a bit pricey..otherwise so far, after 2 days of actually using it, it hasn't fallen apart yet. happy hunting.
