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!

    Almost useless! The adapter's mechanical tolerances were so bad that I could only attach two of my large collection of Nikkor G lenses - and they were so tight that I feared damage to their mounts.

    I replaced this adapter with a Novoflex equivalent which works perfectly with all my Nikon lenses. Lens attachment/detachment is silky smooth with the Novoflex.

    Thank you, B&H, for your wonderful return policy. You're the BEST.

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

    Successfully allowed me to use DX lenses on a A6000. Manual focus and approximate aperture settings are a limitation, but this is a useful tool for situations where autofocus is not important. I used it to successfully repurpose a DX ultrawide lens for landscape and architecture, with good results.

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

          We use the Metabones adaptor to connect Nikon 85mm G Lens to the Sony A7II. The way you focus with the product is to use focus peaking with the camera. I would not hesitate to buy it again. Taking pictures with both the lens and using the adapter are incredible! 1st one we ordered we had to return because it was so hard to put on you had to practically force it on with extreme force and almost scraped our lens to get it on. That one we exchanged. The second one works I believe as designed and is pretty easy to install between the Nikon lens and the camera. Still is a little stiff, but nowhere like the last one. Makes me wonder if you need to buy multiple ones for each Nikon lens you own rather than keep taking them off and on. Using it has changed our life of photography! The Sony focus peaking lets you so precisely control where the focus goes that we are now taking incredible photographs and way better than what we were getting with the Nikon D90. In that regards, it is a complete no brainer to get it.

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

          First use was to attach my new Sigma 35mm ART to the adapter. The leaf tensioning springs bent and locked the lens to the adapter. Took an hour to get it off. However, B&H processed the item return without a hitch.

                  Attached it to my new FS7 put on my nikon 24-70 no problems nice and smooth. Changed over to the 50mm and couldn't get the lens to mount. Closer inspection showed that one of the springs had lifted up and was preventing the lens from turning fully.

                  Not impressed at all. As I am in the Caribbean returning the item is not practical as it cost as much to exchange it as it does to get a new one.
                  Will try different brand next time.

In the sony menu I had to set release shutter with no lens to make it work. Image quality is great.

                              First one broke after 3 weeks of very light use. Not sure how to rate this b/c I don't know yet if that was a fluke or not. B&H exchanged it for a new one because it was less than 30 days.

                                I got the adapter to use with my Sony FS7, and Nikon lenses.
                                It's well built, there is no play, and the lens mounts nice tight to the adapter.

                                There are some cheaper solutions, but I'm not sure you'll get the same quality.

                                      The adapter is well made. The threads on both sides of the adapter are machined well, with very tight tolerances. My Nikon G lenses fit snugly and the connection to my Sony A7II is good.

                                      I'm getting used to the aperture control, but I've had no issues. I wish that it clicked between each aperture value, but not a huge deal.

                                      Not much else to say. I'm happy with the adapter.

                                        Quality adapter. Snug fit. No need to invest in other lenses. Can use my Nikon lenses on my Sony a6000.

                                          I use this to put some old Nikon lenses to use on Sony E-mount cameras. Sure, everyone will miss auto focus and auto exposure, but this adapter is well built, fits both the body and lens without any looseness, and dos exactly what it is supposed to do. With the shortage of lenses for E-mount this is a good way to expand usefulness of the camera.

                                            This adaptor performs exactly as advertised. The stop-down mechanism seems accurate. It is very smooth and step-less. The adaptor provides excellent fit to the body and to the lens. Very close tolerances.

                                                I use this adapter for my Sony A7s. Metabones has made a great production again. No issues at all with this adapter. Would definitely buy it again.

                                                Got this to use some of my Nikon glass on my Sony a6000. It does all it is suppose to do, can use all my lenses. I did find it difficult to focus quickly and accurately. Once you are used to the sony autofocus its hard to go back to manual focus. Prefer to use my sony lenses when possible but with this adapter I am now able to use some exotic nikon glass when needed. Fits well .

                                                  I use this adapter between my Nikon D lenses and an the Sony A7 camera. I've tested several shots with my AF50mm 1.8D. I tested both landscape with stopped down aperture and various selective focus to really test the depth of field settings and the adapter gave me consistent results to what I would expect from the lens.Because my D lens had an aperture ring as well, it is important to lock either the adapter or the lens closed (either "7" on the ring or your highest aperture on your lens). And be sure to mount the ring to your lens while the adapter is set to "7". I decided to set aperture using my lens so I set the adapter ring to "7". I got good results with these settings.Because the Sony A7 has color peaking when using manual, the fact that auto-focusing is not available when using this adapter did not present any limitations. The Sony manual focusing with color peaking is smooth the magnification provides precision results. Looking forward to testing my 70-300 and my 85mm prime as well.Overall this adapter performs exactly as advertised and I would recommend to others.

                                                      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.
