Product Highlights
  • Adapts Nikon F Mount Lens for Use on Sony NEX Camera

The Vello Nikon F Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Adapter allows you to mount a Nikon F lens onto a Sony NEX camera body. The all-metal adapter is designed to fit the lens securely, yet can still be removed easily when not needed.

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 lens will retain its ability to focus to infinity.

      I received an NEX5 as a gift, although I own a large stack of Nikon equipment. Just for fun, I bought a very cheap adapter from another manufacturer to see how the Nikkors would work on the NEX. The results were ok, but the cheap adapter was wobbly and it was apparent that sooner or later I would lose a lens when if fell off.

      So I bought this Vello. It feels solid. Image quality has improved too, probably due to tighter manufacturing tolerances. It's always great to see a product deliver as well as you hope. I highly recommend this.

      Simple and cheap

      It works with my Vivitar series 1 Zoom (Nikon Mount) on the Sony NEX-F3. The release pin is kind of tricky. It is too small and hurt your finger.

          Comments about Vello Nikon F Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Adapter:

          I purchased a Sony Nex-6 and wanted to use an old Nikon lens I have so I purchased this Vello lens adapter. I cannot comment on this adapter's durability because I only kept it (and the NEX-6) for a few weeks. The adapter worked as anticipated. I was able to use focus peaking to focus w/ the adapted lens and could see aperture changes via live view. The adapter was easy to attach and remove from lens and mount.

                Comments about Vello Nikon F Mount Lens to Sony NEX Camera Adapter:

                I've had my NEX 6 for a few months, and finally bought this adapter to use a few of my Nikon lenses with it. I just got the adapter today, and have assembled, disassembled, and reassembled the lens-adapter-camera setup. The adapter is nicely finished, feels sturdy, and attaches securely to both the camera and the lens. So far the only lens I've used with it is an old Nikkor AI 50mm f1.4 lens. I'm happy with the photos I'm getting with it on the NEX 6. I have to focus manually, which I'd expected. As I mentioned, the lens and camera feel quite securely connected with this adapter. The only tricky part was figuring out how to move the adapter's mounting pin when I wanted to remove the lens from the adapter. There are cheaper adapters to be found, but I'd rather not risk damage to a lens or my camera from a cheap adapter that fails. I'm satisfied that this adapter was good value for the price.

                    Worked fine with the Sony A7 and Nikon 50mm f/1.2. Did add a bit of length to the lens and made the Sony front heavy, but the quality of the product is good.

                            This adapter is nearly perfect except for the fact that it required a slight sanding down to fit one particular stubborn old obscure lens. It has worked perfectly with every other lens. Tight firm fit that does not damage the camera or the lenses. I trust this adapter to hold the weight of my heaviest lenses!

                              Wasn't expecting the quality that came with this adapter. Lot of the more expensive ones can be expected to function perfectly and have very good construction. This adapter was above and beyond what I hoped for in a 50 tool.

                                        Perfect for Nikon F mount (AF-S Nikkor lens with Aperture ring) and Sony NEX-EA50UH camcorder in Manual Focus mode. No friction between adaptor and lens and mounting flange. It would be more perfect if the Alignment Dots were on the barrel instead and they are bigger.
