Product Highlights
  • For All Nikon Lenses Including DX & G
  • Expands Capabilities of PMW-F3
  • Magnification Factor of 1.5x
  • Great for Telephoto & Macro Footage
  • Thumbscrew Opens/Closes DX & G Lens Iris
  • CNC-Milled, Anodized Aluminum
  • Chrome-Plated Brass Mount

The Adaptimax Plus Nikon to Sony PMW-F3 Lens Adapter allows you to mount any Nikon lens, including DX and G series (which do not have an external aperture ring) to a camera with the Sony FZ mount. The CNC-milled aluminum adapter fits into the mount of the mount of the Sony PMW-F3, F5, and F55 Cameras allowing them to accept a Nikon lens. Because the sensor of the PMW-F3, f5 and F55 are smaller than full frame, there is a 1.5x magnification factor that affects the lens, so a 32mm Nikon Lens will give you roughly the field of view that you would expect from a 50mm lens.

For Nikon DX and G series models, the adapter's thumbscrew makes contact with the small lever that opens the iris of the lens. This specially designed thumbscrew allows you to open and close this lever, thereby adjusting exposure with far greater precision than the simple selection of an F stop allows. The 1.5x magnification factor of the Adaptimax Plus makes it perfect for telephoto or macro videography.

Note! The PL adapter must be removed from the F3 before attaching this adapter.

CNC-milled from high-grade aluminum and anodized
Fitted with an extremely hard-wearing brass Nikon mount which is then chrome-plated for even longer durability
Adaptimax stands by its design and build quality with a 12-month, no-quibble guarantee

      I needed to find a simple solution to allow our F3 to be used in a quick shooting mode, i.e, Not having to use my Primes which, although I love using and the look I get from them, constantly changing lenses when shooting quick turn around material without an assistant was holding me back! To solve this issue, I decided to get a couple of zooms.
      The Adaptimax Plus Nikon to Sony PMW-F3 Lens Adapter is pretty much what I was expecting. I actually brought my Nikon ED 80-200 for my F3 before I brought this adapter as I was confident that it would do the trick.
      When it arrived, I simply wacked it on the front of the camera, fitted the lens and was shooting in a matter of minutes. It is quick to fit and remove when you want to go back to the PL adapter.
      I was also searching for a second hand Nikon wide zoom (17-35) or there about, with an external aperture ring as I wasn't convinced that I'd be happy the screw system on this adapter. I was pleasantly surprised how well the screw system works! This changed my approach to deciding on a wide zoom, allowing me to look at other, cheaper options. I ended up buying a Tamron 17-50mm zoom with internal aperture. Not what I would normally look at buying, but this adapter gave me the option to buy a cheaper lens that does the job well enough.
      So, great result, I've now been using this system for a couple of weeks, and I'm really happy with how it all works.

          I had the MTF, and like this much better. Precision aperture control compared to the MTF.

            Allows you to use any Nikon lens on one of the F series sony's. The little thumbscrew iris control allows you to make small exposure changes while recording that are impossible using the clicked rings on the actual lens.

                This seems to be a much better made product than the MTF adapter. The only thing that is a little odd is the aperture control. But it works perfectly well and gives more fine tuned approach when compared to the MTF.

                  I keep this adapter on my F3 most of the time as I use almost exclusively Nikkor lenses. The iris control screw performs perfectly and is very accessible with precise adjustment. It saves you having to fumble between the lens and camera as on the rotary adjustable adapters - I know I also have a Novaflex!
                  It looks awesome, is beautifully finished and I'm very pleased with it so far.

                    We are using this adapter to mount all of our Nikon lenses to the F3. if it were less expensive my Company would buy two more! Simple, very effective, well made and a pleasure to use.

                              Very good build quality, works well with AF-D and AIS lens. Poor design of the aperture adjusting screw. Cannot fully open aperture on some of Nikon AF-S lenses, such as 16-35/f4 and 50/f1.8G.
