Vello Accelerator Lens Adapter for Nikon F-Mount Lenses to Sony E-Mount Cameras
Key Features
  • Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera
  • Full-Frame Lenses to APS-C Format Camera
  • Increases Aperture by 1 f/Stop
  • Increases Angle of View by 0.71x
Pair your existing Nikon F-mount full-frame lenses with a modern Sony E-mount mirrorless camera and experience the coveted "full-frame look" on APS-C format sensors with the Accelerator Lens Adapter from Vello. By using a specialized 4 element in 4 group optical design, this adapter is able to increase a lens' angle of view by a factor of 0.71x while simultaneously increasing the maximum aperture by one whole stop. This allows a 50mm f/1.4 lens on an APS-C camera to maintain an angle of view close to 50mm while providing it with an f/1.0 equivalent aperture. This setup means full-frame lenses can be adapted to APS-C sensors, or full-frame cameras in APS-C crop mode, without losing the desired natural look of a full-frame system. Along with this, the adapter features a manual aperture ring with an 8-stop range in 1/2-stop increments.

Vello LAG-NEX-NF Overview

Pair your existing Nikon F-mount full-frame lenses with a modern Sony E-mount mirrorless camera and experience the coveted "full-frame look" on APS-C format sensors with the Accelerator Lens Adapter from Vello. By using a specialized 4 element in 4 group optical design, this adapter is able to increase a lens' angle of view by a factor of 0.71x while simultaneously increasing the maximum aperture by one whole stop. This allows a 50mm f/1.4 lens on an APS-C camera to maintain an angle of view close to 50mm while providing it with an f/1.0 equivalent aperture. This setup means full-frame lenses can be adapted to APS-C sensors, or full-frame cameras in APS-C crop mode, without losing the desired natural look of a full-frame system. Along with this, the adapter features a manual aperture ring with an 8-stop range in 1/2-stop increments.

Along with these capabilities the durable metal adapter features a removable tripod foot with 1/4"-20 socket for use on a tripod or support system, alleviating strain on the lens mount. Additionally, the purely mechanical adapter has a matte black interior to prevent reflections from interfering with image quality.

Note:
Using the adapter with telephoto lenses or zoom lenses at longer focal lengths may produce minimal vignetting.
No aperture control will be possible when pairing this adapter with lenses featuring the newer electromagnetic aperture mechanism (e.g. Nikon E, etc.).

ALL metal construction? I noticed a couple of individual comments elsewhere that stated plastic (body and foot).
Asked by: John
My “VELLO Accelerator LAG-NX-NF” appears/feels/sounds solid and metallic, made of a dark matte black material. Both lens mounts are dull/frosted grey. The base of the removable foot has “B0410” printed on it.

question

Hi:Can someone help me understand what version this is? I see the latest version is V6. But this item does not say the version name. I see ver4 and ver5 listed as separate items on BHP.Thank you in advance.
Asked by: rajani
This one was most likely the first version when introduced. Like many first versions, it was not given a number.

question

Can I use this adapter on the Sony FS7ii camera?
Asked by: Sean C.
While we have no reports of this combination and we cannot test it, we see no reason this would not work as you wish. As I learned in a career in cinematography, test, test, test to make sure it works. If you have any problems, write us at [email protected].

question

Can you adjust the elements position (aka: back focus) for proper infinity focus on MF Nikkor Ai/AiS lenses, like you can with the Metabones version?
Asked by: Phillip
No such adjustment available and mine was not getting to infinity focus so it was not worth keeping. I did not exchange it for another example of the same product because the iris control jams on all of the several lenses I tried. It adjusts the smaller f-stops properly but jams anywhere two to 4 stops short of reaching wide open. Avoid this product !

question

Is there a list of lenses that this adapter supports? I have Tokina 12-28 F4, Sigma 150-600 C which I use on my Nikon D7100.
Asked by: VINEETH
I would say that if the lens fits your Nikon it will fit the same way on this Nikon adapter. All of my Nikon and Sigma lenses work with this adapter. I do notice lens flare or fog that happens in certain lighting angles with some of my lenses and this adapter.
