The FotodioX Adapter for Minolta MD-Mount Lens to Nikon F-Mount Camera allows Minolta MD-mount lenses to fit on a Nikon F-Mount SLR/DSLR camera body. The adapter's all-metal design and polished surfaces are intended to guarantee smooth mounting and durability. The adapter has a built-in 1.4x multi-coated focus-correction lens to adjust for infinity focus and the glass element can be removed for macro photography. Adapter caps are included to protect the focusing element when not in use.

Note: Automatic diaphragm, auto-focusing, or any other such functions will not be accessible while using this adapter. "Stop-down mode" will need to be used when attempting to use in-camera metering with a lens and this adapter because a lens used in that case will not have the ability to have its aperture controlled by the camera body. You can shoot in manual mode or aperture priority mode.

        Comments about FotodioX Adapter for Minolta MD-Mount Lens to Nikon F-Mount Camera:

        The Fotodio X adapter is very well made, all metal construction supporting the optical lens, and works well on my Nikon D3200. It is definitely worth the cost, at this very reasonable price. I have 6 Minolta MD Rokkor lenses left over from my shooting film days, so being able to use them on my D3200 would be a great bonus. So I purchased the Fotodio X adaptor and I'm very happy with the purchase. The adapter works very well, the photos are very clear and sharp. You just have to make sure when focusing on a subject your focus is spot on.

          Comments about FotodioX Adapter for Minolta MD-Mount Lens to Nikon F-Mount Camera:

          I use the Minolta adapter for Nikon on my D3200. I have a Minolta 50mm f/1.4 lens and it fits perfectly on my D3200. The photos are sharp. The only drawback to using the Minolta lens is it can't be used in Auto mode, but other than that the adapter does its job and it's made well. I recommend it for any Minolta/Nikon users, even just to have it to play around and experiment with.

            Comments about FotodioX Adapter for Minolta MD-Mount Lens to Nikon F-Mount Camera:

            I tried this adapter on my Nikon D40 using an old Minolta 50mm lens. Everything fit great and looked great through the view-finder. However, when I shot some photos, they were blurred and had a weird look to them, not sharp at all. I messed with it for about twenty minutes and got maybe 5 or 6 images to look ok, mostly with small apertures ( f5.6 and f8). Maybe I'm missing something, but I feel like it should be giving me better images than it is. Oh well, worth a try.

              This converter allows me to use my Vivitar macro lens on my new Nikon D7100 camera. I also have many filters for my macro lens so they now work with the Nikon D7100!!!

                    Solid construction. Connects my Minolta lenses right to my Nikon D3100 nicely and feels solid. And the image looks nice.

                      I wanted to use my many Minolta manual lenses on my Nikon D-3200. This did the job perfectly. It takes clear photos with no distortion.

                        The product itself is great. Works great, simple to use. You just have to make sure your Nikon is in Manual mode (it won't work in any other mode, so all you Auto-shooters may not want to buy this). I was trained on film, so the fact that I can now use a manual iris is super helpful. It also works in Video mode, which is also great. I've heard a lot of people complain about light loss, but it really isn't that bad. You lose maybe a stop to a stop and a half of light. I would say it's probably not ideal for low light situations.

                        The only downside is that the camera won't meter with any of these lenses, but that's Nikon's fault not FotodioX.
