Metabones MB_NFG-M43-BM1 overview

  • 1Description

The matte black Nikon G Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter from Metabones allows you to attach a Nikon F-mount G lens to a Micro Four Thirds format camera. Metabones' adapters are precision-machined with brass and plated with chromium on both sides of the adapter. It is also designed to allow lenses to reach infinity focus while maintaining the correct registration distance required to support CRC lenses or lenses with floating elements.

This adapter features a clickless 7-stop aperture ring with half-stop markings and a detachable tripod foot compatible with Arca Swiss, Markins, and Photo cam ball head tripods. Additionally, its matte black finish minimizes internal reflections so as to maintain image quality.

To note, automatic lens functions, like autofocus, will not be retained when using this adapter.

    Metabones MB_NFG-M43-BM1 reviews

    Nikon G Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Doesn't manual focus with Nikon AF-P lenses Well built, zero wiggle at either end, aperture control well damped. Work's fine with my Nikon AF-S lens (aperture and manual focus), but does not work with my Nikon AF-P (manual focus) lens. I contacted metabones to find out the reason but no response for 4 weeks now, they say on their website they wont respond to questions which they have on their faq, but couldn't find anywhere indicating non compatibility with Nikon AF-P (manual focus). After speaking with bandhphoto they confirmed the new af-p lens don't work with this adapter, so I asked BandHPhoto to update their description so other customer could be made aware of this but doesn't look like they have, hence why im writing this review. Not a deal breaker, i only have 1 af-p lens, everything else is af-s.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from works great1 This allows me to use my collection of old Nikon manual lenses as well as my new Nikon G lenses on my Panasonic GH4. My auto lenses however are reduced to manual operation only. Not so great for fast action photos or video. Works great for a video interview or something that doesn't move in and out of focus.The idea is to use the lenses at wide open when possible. With the GH4 my nikon 70 to 200 mm 2.8 doubles the focal length effectively. One problem with the GH4 is the tripod mount doesn't clear the panasonic YAHG attachment, but it can be easily removed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Infinity Focus This is a note for anyone looking to use this lens for video work that requires frequent zooming (such as event videography): This adapter was designed to be a tiny bit SHORT of the 46.5mm flange distance of the Nikon mount. This is ostensibly so that you will have no problems focusing to infinity, even if there is some wear on the lens mount. While this may help with using older lenses that have seen a fair bit of wear, most modern lenses are already designed to focus PAST infinity to account for this. So, what does all that mean for video shooters like those I described above? Well, put simply, focus drift caused by zooming your lens in and out will be exaggerated, making you loose critical time pulling focus again. If you happen to have a rare, parfocal lens, this characteristic will be gone. It may also mean that you have trouble pulling close focus with really wide lenses. This is quite unfortunate, but (thankfully) there's an easy fix. I contacted metabones by email and after some back and forth about this issue, was mailed some micro-thin paper rings, which I stacked under the metal M43 mount on the inside of the adapter until the flange distance was just right for my (admittedly more-demanding) needs. If you are not a DIY kind of person, they offered to do the calibration for me if I sent in the adapter, so you should have that option as well. Otherwise, this is a FANTASTIC adapter. It's rock-solid and fits tightly on the Nikon side, and as tightly as I would expect anything to on the M43 side. The tripod foot is also an absolute must for me. The only other problem I had was with some older AF-D lenses like the 50mm f/1.8, which seem to have an aperture ring throw longer than the adapter's, so I cannot quite open the aperture all the way. It's no big deal, as those lenses have a manual aperture rings, but it's worth noting.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings about this product Pros: The mounts were perfect. The aperture ring was smooth. Non reflective inner surface. The tripod foot is a nice addition. Cons: The copy I received was defective: It would not open lens aperture fully. Grease from the aperture mechanism was seeping to the exterior. Tripod foot had some play, allowing slight but noticeable l-r rotation. No documentation / manual. I returned the product due to inability to open aperture fully using this adapter. If not for that problem I would consider this a good but still imperfect product.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the one to get Unfortunately I first purchased the simpler version of this adapter from Metabones first. This model is identical looking to the other. Both are well made with metal male and female mounts, as well as all metal construction. The fit-up on both and at each end is snug and confidence inspiring. But this unit is the one to get as it allows the use of newer lenses which do not have f-stop rings as well as lenses that have f-stop rings. This model has an f-stop mechanism built in, allowing the f-stop to be changed via a numbered click-stop system. Without this additional functionality lenses without f-stop rings can be mounted but they will constantly be fully stopped down, making them essentially useless. For a bit more money the Metabones Nikon G Lens to Micro Four Thirds Lens Mount Adapter is a better choice than the less expensive Metabones Nikon F Lens to Micro Four Thirds Camera T Adapter II, because then more Nikon lenses will work with you M4/3 camea.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for Wildflower Photography My specific use for this Metabones adapter is wildflower photography in full manual mode and it works like a charm! In fact, I'd say the combination of Metabones adapter and macro lens is more convenient to use than the macro lens by itself! I use the Metabones to adapt a Nikon-mount, Tamron 90mm macro lens to a Panasonic Lumix G7 camera. (I also have a Nikon D7100 camera, but I use the G7 for backpacking because of its lighter weight and for wildflower photography because of the swivel LCD monitor). Here are the positive aspects of the Metabones adapter: (1) The Metabones adapter fits snuggly enough that there is no play between the lens and the camera. (2) The tripod mount on the adapter is, to my surprise, a huge plus because, mounted there, the lens and camera are balanced much better than if the camera itself were mounted directly on the tripod. (3) Best of all, as one rotates the aperture ring on the adapter, the aperture of the lens opens and closes along with it and the aperture remains where it is set. This means that one can easily rotate the aperture ring until one finds the depth of field that looks best and then that look is held in place. On most cameras, the depth of field preview button is inconvenient to use because the lens is only stopped down for as long as the preview button is physically held down. CAUTION: Be sure to focus with the lens wide open and then stop down to the depth of field one wants. (4) One side benefit is that, on a micro four thirds camera body, compared to my D7100 crop sensor camera, my macro lens gains significant working space between the lens and subject. Note that when using the Metabones adapter, autofocus capability is lost. However, one can somewhat awkwardly utilize the camera's light meter by setting the shutter speed on the camera and then rotating the Metabones aperture ring until the light meter indicates the correct exposure has been achieved.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well built Works perfect with my Nikon lenses and the BMCC. Click less F stop control. Very sturdy and fits tight. No noticeable negative effects in images at any focal length.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great adapter One thing I noticed was that if I had the adapter set to wide open when I attached the lens, the lens wouldn't latch, just close down the aperture setting on the adapter and it attaches fine. I have access to the full range of apertures on each of my lenses and can focus to infinity (Some adapters limit the focusing). This is non-clicked, so the aperture ring move smoothly, which is great for video, which is what I'm doing, but may be annoying for stills. The adjustment ring is smooth and easy to move, but tight enough to stay put.Very high-quality build. I was concerned about attaching my 70-200mm 2.8 with an adapter since it is quite heavy, but this thing is solid. I have no concerns about durability.Another fear I had was the tripod foot on it. It does extend below the body of my gh3 making it impossible to mount a quick release plate in the long position, but the foot does come off and then the adapter is small enough to use the plates. All in all, this is a great product if you want more quality than the super cheap options out there but don't want to shell out huge dollars for the top of the line adapters.
