Product Highlights
  • Adapts Nikon Lens to Sony NEX Camera

One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Nikon Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Nikon lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

      This adapter works like a charm. I've used it with primes, zoom and telephoto lens. Anywhere from a 17-35 f2.8 to a 200-400mm f4. No problems, no vignetting. With manual lenses, just set the stop on the adapter fully closed down and then drive the f-stop from the lens to get a real idea of your exposure on the scale. I traveled with this adapter to Cambodia didn't experience any problems with the shift in temperature as we traveled. Pretty solid and reliable. Just make sure you support the bigger lenses like a 70-200mm f2.8.

      This adapter is built with high quality materials and well finished, but it is much more expensive than the other brands now available. I use it to fit my Sony Nex-5 with some Nikon prime lenses such as the 105mm f/2.5 manual focus. I primarily work with Nikon or Sony reflex cameras and keep one or two Nex-5 bodies in my bag, fitted with the lenses that are rarely used, so I don't need to change lenses in the field, wasting time or risking to get dust trapped inside the camera bodies. One such lens could be my Nikon 10.5mm f/2.8 Fisheye, but for my disappointment this lens revealed a major problem in the manufacture of the Novoflex adapter. I got vigneting from the small sunshade because the lens mount is slightly twisted, rendering this combination useless unless a good amount of cropping is done! Other problems are the lack of a scale in the f-stop lever and the awkward lens release lever. To much for the price charged.

          It fits perfectly to the SONY NFS700+Nikkor lenses.
          Strong and well crafted it has a aperture control ring that helps to control the focus.
          Unfortunately it have no automatic diafragm control.

            Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Nikon Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

            This adaptor allows me to use the best Nikon glass on my Sony NEX VG30 and Sony NEX EA50 large chip video cameras.As a professional still photographer and videographer, I have the best Nikon glass--being able to use it for video is extraordinary. Best part is the ability to use the f/2.8 constant aperture lenses. This in turn allows the video camera to be really usable in low light without upping the gain. Adaptor is super well made, connects tightly with a solid click. Variable aperture ring works great on Nikon G type lenses.I opted for this more expensive adaptor because I wanted the best--it is really cheap for the value it gives me compared to the price of the lenses attached to it and the cost of the cameras.Nicely machined, smooth motion on the aperture ring with solid lens mounts. Typical German quality--overengineered and works beautifully!Couldn't be more excited to have this essential piece of equipment.

                This adapter works perfectly in fitting the huge range of superlative Nikon F mount lenses onto the revolutionary Sony A7R 36MP or A7 24MP bodies. The fit of the adapter to both lens mount and body mount are flawless. The important advantage of the Novoflex design is in the function of beautifully finished blue diaphragm actuator ring. With one simple twist, the photographer can shift from full-aperture focusing to stopped-down shooting.

                  Adapt Nikkor lenses to Sony E and EF mount cameras with aperture control. A quality product at a premium price. Some have complained about the small lens release button and it is small but it isn't really a button, it's a lever and from reading some of the other reviews it seems some don't relize you pull back on it rather than push it like a button. Once you figure that out it works well and gloves aren't a problem. Looking forward to using it with an A7r

                  Allows use of Nikon lenses with Sony Nex cameras, but doesn't transfer any electronic functions, and everything is manual. I did not read the fine print, ordered the lens, and was disapointed. My own fault, but this is a simple mechanical device, well made, but in no way worth $[$].00. There are other dapters for 1/4th the price that do the same thing. I returned it.

                  Following a considerable amount of research I decided upon the Novoflex Nikon to NEX adapter for my NEX VG900. It works flawlessly, and although there were those who complained about its small lens release button I have not found it to be an issue.

                        Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Nikon Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

                        Just purchased this adapter for my Sony NEX-7 camera.

                        Let me just say that this adapter is built VERY WELL. Great construction that connects very well with the camera body.

                        It's definitely an adapter that I would leave on the NEX-7 body, and just switch my Nikon lens on the front mount when I'm out shooting.

                        My ONLY two gripes with the adapter is the release pin for the Nikon side. It's really small and not very ergonomic. It's not bad, but not great either.

                        The other gripe is it doesn't come with a Nikon body cap (although it comes with the E-mount body cap). So I went out and purchased a Nikon body cap so that I could just leave the adapter on the camera. The Nikon body cap does not stay firmly on so when I'm not using the camera anymore, I'll have to take the adapter off.

                        Those are the only 2 downsides.
                        It's definitely pricier than a lot of other adapters out there, but, with me being a working professional, the saying: "you pay for what you get" is so true.

                        AND, I forgot to add that this adapter WILL adjust the iris on your Nikon lenses that don't have the iris ring.
                        Works really nice and smooth.

The lens twists and clicks on the adapter just like my camera but on the adaptor it does not seat tight after the click. The slight movement of the lens back and forth changes the aperture setting when I focus. I have looked for a way to adjust the adapter but not found that.

                              Spend the extra $$$; it's worth it!. This adapter is German made awesome! I have it on my Sony NEX-FS-100. The two were meant for each other. My NIKON lenses fit perfectly tight. Also has an open Aperature mode that will keep it wide open if you so desire.

                              I was using a Sony EX1 with Letus DOF adapter. Compared to that set-up (which worked quite well in 2009) this thing is a dream. Sony will never make a camera with a NIKON mount. This thing could NOT be any better if Nikon or Sony would have made it themselves. Novoflex ROCKS!

                              PS No more worring about vibration from the Letus!

                                  Comments about Novoflex Adapter for Nikon Lens to Sony NEX Camera:

                                  When I was purchasing the Sony FS100, I knew I was going to want to utilize my Nikon Lenses on the camera. So, I started the search for a good mount.

                                  I didn't want to go cheap and buy a mount from resale sites, so I looked to BH for some mounts and this was the one that really caught my eye a few months ago.

                                  So, this Novoflex adapter is super sturdy. I am very happy with the mount. I have tested out other cheaper mounts from fellow camera operators that have purchased the cheaper ones for their NEX 5 cameras, but this one feel very very sturdy. And the aperture control on this adapter is very smooth and I really like that.

                                  The only thing that bothers me is the lens release switch, it is very small and sometimes hard to get the lens off.

                                  But overall, very happy with the adapter. If you get it, you won't regret it.

                                      Perfect fit. Some of my lenses slide on and off this thing easier than they do my Nikon bodies. While you dont get numeric feedback of your aperture, every other feature of this is perfect. Solid build, and it works!

                                            Positives; Well constructed, easy to handle, fits all 5 of my Nikon lenses. 1 Nikon Sigma, 3 older style Nikon with F rings, and 2 modern nikons with no F ring.

                                            Negative: There is no indication of the F-stop being used. The rig does not have markers and the digital display does not indicate to the user. If you choose to use the F ring on the lens for those that have one, you must first turn the adapter ring all the way to one side.

                                            Lastly and a minor thing, the switch to release the lens is very small. If wearing gloves, as I do with ski photography, it is hard to remove the lense from the adapter.

                                                This adapter fits perfectly and is a joy to use. The instructions don't explain what the sliding tab is for except to say turn it to the left when mounting a lens. The left setting is for having the aperture set "in camera". The right setting allows you to set the aperture with the lens. It would be useful to list the physical dimensions in the on-line listing.

                                                  The adapter joins the camera and lens seamlessly, as if everything were designed as a unit from the start. I use it on an NEX-5N, which is worthy of my Nikon lenses and being treated as serious photo equipment. The aperture dial operates firmly and smoothly. It would help if the instructions for mounting the lens were a little more conspicuous than small print on a piece of paper you might accidentally throw away. Mounting a lens is easy enough, you just have to turn the adapter's dial all the way open before putting the lens on. To use a lens's aperture ring instead of the adapter's, the adapter's ring should be turned to the smallest setting. All of my Nikon bayonet manual and electronic lenses work with the adapter. The NEX-5N has functions similar to the Nikon F3 when using the adapter, that is, manual focus and manual exposure, or else aperture preferred automatic exposure. Using it comes naturally to someone used to pre-electronic film cameras. The expense gives pause, but it is a lot less than outfitting the camera with new lenses of the same caliber. No corners have been cut in manufacturer and the machinists doubtless earn a decent living.

                                                  This is a great product to have for a FS100, with capability of using any nikon glass without needing a manual iris ring.

                                                  The only bad thing about this product is that the adapter does not snap into place on the E mount.
