The Owl lens adapter attaches to the rear of the lens instead of the front and accepts all 52mm filters, eliminating the need for different size filters for different lenses. This adapter also serves to protect the image sensor from dust, water, and oil by positioning the filter inside the adapter, in front of the sensor. The adapter provides a secure and solid camera-to-lens connection, and features a removable Arca-type compatible tripod foot.

Filters BEHIND the lens should be thin gelatin, not glass!

By James M
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2018-11-06

Unless a lens is designed to always have a glass filter behind the lens, you should use thin insert-type gelatin filters that do not significantly refract the light because they are so thin. The reviewer who had problems with glass neutral density filters would not have had optical problems if insert-type gelatin filters were used. This is the type of filter that, for example, the Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens uses behind the rear lens element for exactly this reason.

Warning. Field curvature problems when used with ultra-wides

The main draw for buying this lens is to use my Samyang 14mm/2.8 UWA with ND filters/polarizers. But you can't beat physics. The lens was not designed for a glass between the rear element and the sensor, resulting in severe out of focus and CA at the edges. There is no way I could get the edges sharp, so focus stacking does not help. Only when stopped down to F22 are the edges barely acceptable. Perhaps not the fault of DEO but the manufacturer should have pointed this out (instead of prominently featuring the 14/2.8 mounted in its videos). As an adapter it is fine, but the screws (holding the mount!) tend to loosen after being bumped around while hiking.

Must-Have for Fisheye Lenses

This well-made, reasonably-priced adapter is essential for anyone wanting to use filters with Nikon F mount lenses on a mirrorless Sony camera. I do both infrared and astrophotography (with a hydrogen alpha + visible light filter). This adapter allows me to use my nikon-mount fisheye lenses for the first time. It is also useful if you have a lot of Nikon glass and want to standardize on the less expensive 52mm filters that this unit uses.

Pictures show a drop-in type filter holder. Is this holder the type for holding gelatin filters, similar to the Canon 52mm Drop-in Gelatin Filter Holder? If not, would the Canon holder fit this adapter?
Asked by: James M
This adapter uses 52mm screw in filters of pretty much any brand but not for use with gelatin filters.

Given this adapter has no elements why is it listed as having a 1.5x magnification factor?
Asked by: Jeff
The DEO-Tech OWL Nikon G Lens to Sony E Mount Drop-In Filter Adapter does not have any glass optics, As such, there should not be a 1.5x magnification factor unless the adapter is used on a Sony E-mount camera that uses the smaller APS-C 1.5x cropped sensor.

Shouldn't the correct type of filter to use behind the lens should be a thin gelatin filter which will not significantly refract the light, not a thicker glass filter which becomes part of the lens optics and will cause problems as one reviewer reports?
Asked by: James M
This adapter is meant to take 52mm screw in filters not gelatin filters.
