Product Highlights
  • Adapts Nikon G Lens for Sony E-Mount Camera
  • Manual Aperture Collar

The Vello Nikon G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter allows you to mount a Nikon G lens onto a Sony E-mount (NEX or full-frame) camera body. The all-metal adapter is designed to fit securely to the lens, yet can still be removed easily when not needed. A tripod collar with a 1/4"-20 mount enables you to shift the center of gravity for easier handling with heavy lenses, and relieve strain on the camera lens assembly.

Autofocus, automatic aperture and AE metering will be disabled by the lens adapter as there will be no electrical communication between camera body and lens. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority mode. The adapter has a manual aperture collar to compensate for the lack of one on the lens. The lens will retain its ability to focus to infinity.

          Comments about Vello Nikon G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter:

          Got a Sony A7s and wanted to adapt my Nikon 'D' and 'AIS' lenses to the FE mount. Since those lenses have their own aperture ring (unlike Nikon 'G'), I could have simply gotten the F-mount version known as LA-NEX-NF, but I wanted to have a smooth non-indexed aperture change capability, and also, borrow my colleagues' Nikon G lenses without a problem.The adapter precisely fit both the male and female lens mounts- not too tight, and no play. The aperture ring operated smoothly.I would have liked if the aperture ring had a different knurling or texture, since it was hard to find by feel.The tripod mount, another feature which differentiates the LA-NEX-NF from the LA-NEX-NG, was useful for its intended purpose, but note that it means that operation of the aperture ring can be awkward.I am overjoyed to give my old lenses new life on the new body, and save money in the process.

            When I bought this I had no need for the aperture control. I bought it because it had the tripod mount. Glad I spent the extra money. I now have a G lens that needs to be stopped down. Even happier now.

            Good value, but be aware...

            Cons

            • Poor Fit With 18-200mm Vr
            • Poor Fit With Some Lenses

              Comments about Vello Nikon G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter:

              Fits my kit lens from my Nikon 5100 perfectly (AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm, 1:3.5-5.6 G) and an old Nikkor 50mm, 1.8F just fine. The adapter's manual aperture control works silky smooth on both these "G"elded and non-G lenses, respectively.

              However, the big dissapointment was with my Nikkor AF-S 18-200mm (VR; 1:3.5-5.6 G ED). The tolerance is way too tight, making the adapter aperture control unusable (you have to really twist to get it to work). It "works", but again, not in a fashion that would be considered useable.

              Other than the above issue, which is considerable, I would've given this product 5 stars. Good build quality for the money.

                Comments about Vello Nikon G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter:

                Very simple to use so Nikon G (and D) lenses can be used with my NEX 5n. no AF, but still beats buying more fast glass for the NEX, which I don't want to do anytime soon.
