Questions? Ask our experts:

The Vello Nikon F Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter allows you to mount a Nikon F lens onto a Sony E-mount (NEX or full-frame) 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.

    I own two Vello adaptors The one for M mount lenses and for Nikon F lenses. They work but they do have some play with the lens on but it doesn't seem to affect image quality. Two of the screws that hold the silver plate on the M mount adaptor fell of and the lense became disconected from it in my camera bag. I called Vello and a few days latter they sent me two screws, not three but two, OK. I put some thread lock on all the screws which is what they should have done maybe. But the one thing you need to know is that some lenses will not focus at infinity with these adaptors. For example my Voightlander 50mm f1.1 does not but my Voightlander 20mm f4 does. My 55mm f2.8 macro Nikkor does but my 35mm to 105 Nikor does at 105mm but not at 35mm. This will mostly not be noticable if you shoot at f8 or smaller but if you were to shoot with a larger apperture the image would be out of focus. If you are going to use these make sure you test your lens wide open at infinnity and decide if you can live with the results. I don't do a lot of landscapes so for me it's not a deal brecker. I do mostly portraits wich present no problem and I'm very happy to be able to use the older film camera lenses, that I feel are superior.

          Nothing empirical but it's a great feeling adaptor. I've had cheap ones and have a Metabones for the Canon to Sony and this one is definitely in the high end of the scale.

                            Nicely packaged by B&H
                            The adapter mated my 50mm F1.4 F lens to the Sony A7R just fine.
                            Since this combination has rendered the camera manual, it does become a challenge. However the picture quality is a wow!
                            Would be nice if there is actually an automatic adapter specially for Nikon/Sony combination.... until then M mode is fun too
                            My newly purchased Rode mic (also from B&H) sits well too ;)

                            Great way to get continued use of the glass from my old Nikon E SLR. Works great with the telephoto, wide-angle and portrait lenses.

                                  I have used several lens adapters and this is by far the least useful. It is very difficult to adjust the aperture on your lens, which is crucial given the camera cannot control the iris through it's computer. It is also difficult to attach and detach lenses. I recommend getting another adapter.

                                  i bought this along with a Voightlander 40mm with the Nikon mount so I could use it not only with my d800e but also with my Sony a7II. I was not happy with the lens, so both are being returned. That particular adapter was not the correct one for the Voigtlander Nikon mount, so it would not work anyway. But, on the adapters behalf, it fit like a glove onto the Sony body but just couldn't fit the 40 to the adapter. I am not rating this adapter for said reason but, the rules say I have to , so it's a 5 because of the Sony fit.

                                    I own several Nikon lenses. And this past Christmas, I received a Sony A6000 as a present. And I wanted to use those lenses with the A6000. One of the main downside is the A6000 becomes a "manual" only camera! It's really shame because the Sony A6000 has one of the best auto focus of all cameras.

                                    As many have already said, this adapter works fine on my Sony A7r using both Nikon AF-D and Nikkor AIS lenses (manual focus only). No complaints with the functioning of the product. However, the fit and finish are not the best. The lens side of the adapter has a chrome facing that fits snugly. Sometimes it clicks when the lens seats into the adapter but most of the time it doesn't. The lens release button is small and can be fiddly. The camera side of the adapter does NOT have a chrome plate (just black painted metal that looks to be a continuation of the metal body). This could be considered good since there shouldn't be the possibility of light leaks that may occur when a separate plate is screwed to the barrel of the adapter. However, my guess is that it is made of aluminum and therefore softer than a chromed plate would be, which could eventually lead to wearing of the connection. Also, as stated in other reviews that I've read, the camera body connection is not at snug as the lens side. this doesn't appear to have any negative effect, yet. Overall, I am happy with this adapter and the price is right. I would suggest buying some Sony rear lens caps for the camera side of the adapter if you are like me and end up leaving the lens on the adapter. If not, then you'll need a nikon camera body cap for the lens side and a sony rear lens cap for the body side, since the adapter does not come with caps.

                                        With the Vello E-Mount adapter I am able to use all my Nikon lens on my Sony a6000.
                                        Love the camera and with this adapter I am able to use all my lens and do not have to buy new, expensive ones.
                                        Only disadvantage - have to shoot in manual mode. But that is not so bad. Best way to shoot anyway.
                                        Highly recommend this addition to your gear bag.

                                            At about $, the Vello Nikon F-mount to Sony E-mount adapter is an inexpensive means to give new life to older Nikon lenses. It has allowed me to utilize a half-dozen Nikon manual lenses, some going back 30 years or more, with my brand new Sony A7s camera. It seems to be well made, fits snugly and securely with all my lenses, and looks like it belongs on the camera body. I recommend it.

                                                  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.

                                                        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.

                                                                I'm using this to mount a Voightlander 180 f/4 to a Sony A7r. Fit is tight (very tight) and there is no wiggle whatsoever. What more can I ask for?

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!
