Product Highlights
  • Adapts Nikon G Lenses to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount

The matte black Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter from Metabones allows you to attach a Nikon F-mount G lens to a Sony NEX camera, including an NEX full frame camera. Metabones' adapters are precision-machined with brass and plated with chromium on both sides of the adapter. It is also designed to allow lenses to reach infinity focus while maintaining the correct registration distance required to support CRC lenses or lenses with floating elements.

This adapter features a clickless 7-stop aperture ring with half-stop markings and a detachable tripod foot compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo cam ball head tripods. Additionally, its matte black finish minimizes internal reflections so as to maintain image quality.

To note, automatic lens functions, like autofocus, will not be retained when using this adapter.

      i just recently purchased a Sony A-7R to use in lieu of my Nikon D800 but this FF E-mount system lacks lens selection and wanted to use my Nikon G type lenses especially the Nikkor 14-24 f2.8 for landscapes. After reading numerous reviews on various adapters on the market, I decided to go with the metabones for built quality of a Novoflex minus the "made in Germany" price tag. The Metabones falls in between the Novoflex and the cheaper Fotodiox. I chose the Metabones over Fotodiox because 1) it has a tripod mount designed for heavy lenses, 2) in reading some reviews about the Fotodiox, the aperture ring rotates on its own causing unpredictable f-stop change (some people complaint about this and decided to tape the f-stop ring).Personally, I feel that the built quality and tightness of the Metabones for little over $ was well worth it's usability and lens security.I gave it 4 stars because there's nothing too fancy about it except it's a bit over priced for a non-functional adapter!

      Nikon G to adapter side fits perfectly with just right tightness.
      Camera Mount to Adapter is loosed so that it does not lock into place. During operation, the lens+adapter combo move back and forth about 2 degree. Camera to adapter fitting should be tight in place and not moving.

      In comparison, sony Nex to A original adapter fit perfectly on both side (lens and camera). I also have a Novoflex Yashica to Nex, which also fit perflectly and tight on the camera to adapter side, so this rules out the issue at the camera mount, but rather it's a adapter issue.

      Other than that, i like the smooth aperture ring.

          Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black):

          I needed to mount a Carl Zeiss 100mm f2 Makro Planar lens with Nikon F mount on my Sony A7R body. First I purchased an inexpensive Vello adapter and the lens wouldn't lock in place with that adapter and was at risk of falling off the camera when I manually focused the lens. With the Metabones adapter the lens locks securely in place and I am able to focus from infinity to 1:2 macro which is the lenses closest focus. There is no better option on the market.

                I bought the Sony a7s full frame and wanted to use Nikon lenses I have.
                This Nikon G lens adaptor mounts the lens easily. I had a cheaper adaptor I bought with the camera and it is stiff and does not work like the Metabones.
                I have the Metabones Speed Booster for my Sony Nex 7that makes
                it FF for any Nikon lens (manual) so this supplier makes good stuff.
                This adaptor lets you mount any Nikon lens you want on the 7 series.
                The Canon version actually works electronically with the camera not just
                manual I believe.

                            Contrary to the answer submitted by a B&H staffer that this adapter only works with G-Nikkors, I was pleasantly surprised that it ALSO works with AF-D and AIS Nikkors. With the adapter aperature ring set at "7" (minimum aperture), one can use the aperture ring on non-G lenses. It also works with the AF-D lens aperture ring locked at minimum f-stop and varying the adapter's ring. I prefer former procedure as I do not have to guess the actual f-stop used.This adapter is preferrable to cheaper ones which controls exposure with a separate diaphragm within the adapter (I should be clear that this adapter adjusts the lens's own diaphragm).I took off 1 star for the lack of instructions and the absence of the ball-bearing mechanism to allow me to convert the clickless diaphragm ring to a clickable one. The Metabones website stated that all adapters came with the click-stop conversion kit.

                                    Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black):

                                    My Nikon G to Sony NEX adapter arrived in Australia very promptly. It was easy to fit to lens and camera. A good solid fit, not too loose, not too tight. With the Sony's focus peaking function it was quick and easy to focus manually. The main lens I bought this adapter for is the Nikon 70-300mm tele zoom. I found it particularly sharp on a tripod with VR turned off. The Metabones adapter works exactly as I expected and the price is okay. What more can you ask?

                                    Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black):

                                    Metabones is not good with a quick response to questions. No phone contact, just email. I had a hard time finding out just how this product worked, but eventually found a knowledgeable B&H voice who filled me in. Essentially it is just a tube that holds a Nikon lens away from the Sony body so the focus falls on the sensor priorly. There is no information passed through the tube beyond the photons. So you must pick focus, exposure and shutter speed on your own. However, you can look at the histogram on the image in the camera and get a pretty good idea of exposure. Focus may be a bit harder. I wouldn't recommend relying on this to adapt a Nikon lens for a basic setup, but it certainly is useful to adapt a special purpose lens for a special shot. The product seems well made and does what it claims.

                                    Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black):

                                    I'm using this on a Sony NEX-EA50 video camera, mounting several Nikon "G-style" lenses. Overall, I'm pleased. It appears to be a solid, well-constructed product. The aperture control ring moves smoothly, and is silent (no clicks). There is no marking showing the aperture, and I plan to experiment with this to see if I can make my own label. The feel of mount is not as smooth as Nikon's own products, but it is not bad. Considering the cost of the Novaflex version (about 3X more money), I can live with this.

                                    The foot does fit an Arca-Swiss style clamp, and has a 1/4-20 threaded hole on the bottom. I don't think this will be of much use to me, since the camcorder body extends below the foot.

                                    My use is for HD video - which is 2MP. The images look good and I can't detect any image quality issues with misalignment of the lens. I did not test this with still cameras (usually 16-36MP in the Sony lineup) so it this is your application, my experience may not apply. As a owner of multiple Nikon D800 bodies (36MP) I am well aware that most adapters introduce IQ issues due to less-than-perfect alignment.

                                    Overall, I'm happy. I'd rather have the Novaflex, but decided to see if the Metabones is good enough. For video, it certainly is.

                                      Its sturdy and has nice parts. The Nikon lens is very stiff in mounting and removing. I want to take some sand paper to the adapter. It just isn't an enjoyable experience which it should be for $[$]

                                      Comments about Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black):

                                      I needed an adapter to use my Nikon G and AI lenses on a Sony NEX-6. I wanted an aperture adjustable adapter (for my Nikon G lenses) that provides a 1/4"-20 threaded foot to use my heavier lenses without straining the camera tripod socket. I first looked at FotodioX adapters because they are less expensive and spoke with one of their techs. He was very helpful, but FotodioX does not offer and aperture adjustable with a tripod mount. If you do not need the tripod mount, consider FotodioX. They have superb customer service (ask for Luis Baltazar).Metabones offered aperture control and tripod mounting. I now can use my collection of Nikon G lenses with aperture control and tripod support if needed.Great product and giving the quality, reasonably priced. Only down side is that it is not made in the USA.
