      Solid build... feels a bit cheaper next to the Metabones version but good for the price! Solid lens connections and serves it's purpose well!

      Needed an adapter from Nikon F mount to MFT but most of them cost more than $, but this one is cheap and works amazing. Wisest choice

        Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Camera:

        I bought this adaptor to use my Nikon 80-400mm lens on my GH4. Since i film a lot of wildlife, i wanted the benefit of the crop factor that the GH4 gives me with this lens & adaptor combo. The finish is nice, the machining of the aluminum is well done. The only slight problem is that there is play on both the body side & lens side, so in all, the body can turn a bit in relation to the lens. Roughly 1/8" i would say.
        I had the same issue with a much more expensive adaptor for my last camera, so it seems it is not manufacturer specific.

        Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Camera:

        Its an adapter. Its fairly solid. Perhaps a little wiggle as its a bit on the cheap side but not terribly so. You won't be shooting video on this anyways (most likely)so shouldn't be an issue.

                      I use the adapter on my Olympus E-M5 to attach manual focus Nikon lenses, which focus sooo smoothly! The product has appears to be all metal with chromed surfaces toward the camera and the adapted lens. There's no problem in viewing wide open and stopping down to shoot -- mostly landscapes which I do. The adapter still keeps my load light (reason I went into MFT) and I avoid the expense of the longer MFT zooms.

                        I recently bought this for my GH3. It works great for the price. I actually had a novaflex as well but this thing when it comes to the image quality is just as good. The only thing is it doesnt have a apature ring but shouldnt be a problem with manual lenses.
