Mitakon Zhongyi MTKLTM2AI2SE Overview

The Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II from Mitakon allows Nikon F lenses to be mounted on Sony E-Mount APS-C format cameras, increasing the angle of view by 0.726x and the maximum aperture of the lens by 1 f-stop.

The four optical elements of the Lens Turbo adapter condense light from the Nikon F full frame lens and project it onto the camera's APS-C sensor allowing the sensor to capture all of the lens' transmitted light, negating the 1.5x crop factor and effectively producing full-frame coverage on non-full-frame sensors. A corresponding increase in the maximum aperture of 1 f-stop makes the lens more effective in low-light situations.

The Mark II version of the Lens Turbo features an improved design to produce sharper images. Its rectangular rear lens rests closer to the camera's sensor improving light transmission and an enhanced lens coating minimizes ghosting and flare. One extra-low dispersion (ED) lens element reduces aberrations for better delineated images. The adapter offers a sturdy metal construction and stainless steel mounts, it attaches to both camera and lens with little play and includes a front and rear protective cap. The Lens Turbo is a manual adapter offering no electronic communication between lens and camera.

The Lens Turbo adapters are compatible with APS-C sized sensors. Although they will physically fit the Sony full frame mirrorless cameras, the camera must be set to Crop Mode to fully support the speed booster's functions.

Vintage Nikon to a6500

By Anonymous
Rated 5 out of 5

I've been using this adapter with some old 70's era Nikkor manual lenses on a Sony a6500 body. Nikkor 35mm f1.4, 85mm f1.8 and 200mm f1.4. These are all non AI* lenses. Be aware this adapter is different than the competition in that it doesn't have an apature ring built in so you need to use manual Nikon lenses with their own focus and aperture controls. The combination of these great manual lenses , with the ability of the 6500 electric view finder with live view manual focus zoom in allows you to get great focused shots easily at wide open aperture. Great adapter to add cheap, fun, stylistic, high quality glass to my setup.

Amazing how well the Nikkor 17-35/2.8 works on the a6000

I purchased this primarly to use my Nikkor 17-35/2.8. It works GREAT, if there is enough DOF. I highly recommend it, it is very nice to be able to use all my other Nikkor lens at their natural focal length. The only drawback is with focusing, a bit hard sometimes when shooting wide open.

Poor design and quality control

I received my Lens Turbo II for my E mount camera last week and optically it works great, unfortunately there were some design and QC issues that almost made me return it. I've used the Lens Turbo II adapter for other camera systems, but this issue directly affects the Sony E mount version. For full disclosure I am using a Sony NEX-6 camera.The problem with this adapter for the E mount is that they changed it from the more traditional design where you locked the adapter using the camera bayonet mount, to using a locking mechanism on the adapter itself. The adapter includes a metal tab cover that blocks access to the lens release button on the camera. Unfortunately this metal tab slightly depresses the button not giving it a proper lock. If you're switching out a lens with a tight fit while the adapter is still attached, with enough force the adapter will slip out of place. I was about to exchange the adapter thinking it might of been a problem with my particular unit, but I then realized it was the design of the adapter itself causing the problem. In addition, B&H Photo is closed for the Passover Holiday, and I didn't have the time to wait for an exchange. So at risk of voiding my warranty, I filed down the tab just enough so it wouldn't press the lens release button on my camera. The adapter now works properly and optically I have no complaints, though I must also note my adapter still had glass polishing residue on the rear element which required additional polishing by me to clean it.Since I only have the NEX-6 to base this issue on, it's very much possible other Sony E mount cameras do not have the same problem. Unfortunately, because of my issue, I cannot recommend this product until the manufacturer fixes the adapter design and/or does a better job QC'ing their product.For anyone with a Sony E mount camera considering this adapter, I would consider alternatives or be prepared to modify it to work properly if you encounter any problems. I also think B&H should pressure the manufacturer to improve their product. I usually don't write reviews, but I believe my experience should be shared since there is so little information about this specific adapter.

Works Really Well

Works really well with my 3 old Nikon lenses, especially the 50mm, f/1.4, which has become my daily walk-around lens. I picked this adapter because it retains the lens' native focal length and +1 stop on aperture. Image results are sharp enough. Of course, you will have to focus manually, but you can still use Sony's A, P, and Superior Auto modes where the camera will do the rest. Note: this adapter doesn't have an aperture ring, so if your lens doesn't have it, you'll default to shooting at the widest aperture all the time. Overall, I'm really happy with this adapter.

Better than expected

I am really impressed with this adapter. I had checked some sample footage on YouTube and some reviews here on BH and went on and gave it a try. I was only to use it occasionally on my Sony a6000 but I finally ended up leaving it on most of the time. The sharpness and build quality are great. I used it mostly for video and figured I should test it taking pictures and the pictures are also sharp. I am also planning on using this adapter on my B cam on some corporate shoots.

Will not fit on Sony FS5

By Jeff Nash
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2016-04-13

Didn't get a chance to use this at all: The optical element sticks out into the Sony side a few millimeters preventing it from mounting on an FS5. Looked and felt like a decent adapter though. Had to return since it won't fit my camera. Wish there was a note of that issue here on B&H's site before I bought it. Now I have to try the Metabones big bucks version.

Works like it should

Works exactly how it should once mounted. Mounting it on the camera (a6000 for me) takes some getting used to as it's different from all other lenses I own.

Easy to use, sharp as a tack. I bought this adaptor to work with my Sony Alpha 6000. It allow me to use F-Mount and AIS Mount Nikkor lenses at their intended focal length with the added bonus of an extra stop of light gathering ability. All the lenses (including a Tamron macro) fit nicely on the adaptor and take crystal clear shots. I strongly recommend this product.

It serves for the FS700?

It serves for the FS700?
Asked by: Oswaldo
Yes, you can use this with the Sony FS700. The FS700 has an E-Mount lens and a Super 35mm Sized Sensor. This will allow you to put Full Frame Nikon F Mount lenses on that camera.

Can I use this adapter with Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED Lens? Does it have aperture ring?
Asked by: Dmitriy
The Mitakon Zhongyi Nikon AI / AI-S Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Turbo Adapter Mark II does not have an aperture ring to control the aperture of the Nikon AF-S 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6G IF-ED lens. As it is designed for the older Nikon AI and AI-S lens, both which have aperture rings built into the lens, using the Nikon AF-S lens on this adapter will only allow you to shoot at the maximum aperture. If you need an adapter that allows you to set the aperture of the lens, you would need a Nikon G to Sony E-mount adapter, such as either the Metabones Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Camera Lens Mount Adapter (Matte Black), B&H # MENFGEBM1, the FotodioX Adapter for Nikon G Lens to Sony NEX Mount Camera II, B&H # FONEX2ANG, or the Vello Nikon G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Adapter, B&H # VELANEXNG.

Nope. There is no electronic connection between adapter and lens nor between adapter and camera.

Does this adapter have an aperture dial?
Asked by: Anonymous
This one does not have it but I have seen another one that does by VILTROX. My preference was not to have the aperture ring and was interested in this one because all my lenses have it and two similar rings were confusing to me. I found the mounting mechanics on this adaptor to be really awkward and retuned it. I got the VILTROX and taped over the ring with black tape...

Will infinity focus still work for Nikon F lenses?

Will this work for the Sony A7?
Asked by: Norberto D.
Yes it should. Works perfectly on my FS100 and the A7 is mirror less so you have the correct flange distance. Just remember that it doesn't have electronic communication to the camera so you need manual aperture lenses.
