Vello LAE-SE-NFV5 overview

  • 1Description

Breathe new life into your Nikon F-mount lenses with version 5 of this Vello Auto Lens Adapter, which enables you to mount Nikon glass to a full-frame or APS-C Sony E-mount mirrorless camera body and retain full automatic functionality (depending on lens/camera combination). When using supported G-type and E-type lenses from Nikon, users will have auto exposure as well as the ability to control the aperture from the camera body, which in version 5 is improved with a metal aperture lever for smoother more reliable operation. Autofocus can be utilized as well (only for photography, not video) and is fastest and most accurate when used with Sony cameras that use focal-plane phase-detect AF systems. Version 5 brings with it optimized autofocus and auto exposure performance among a larger range of lenses. Image stabilization is also supported and will work in tandem with compatible in-body stabilization systems. Users of compatible D-type lenses will have access to auto exposure capabilities and all Nikon lenses will be able to communicate Exif data through the adapter to the camera.

The mount is designed for long-term use with a durable metal construction and it has a matte black interior that will help reduce reflections for optimal image quality. Additionally, it has an integrated tripod foot with a 1/4"-20 socket that can be used to reduce stress on the camera's lens mount when using larger lenses. This foot has been redesigned with a slimmer profile in order to ensure compatibility with a wider range of lenses.

Note: Please note that compatibility is very specific, depending on exact lens and camera firmware version combination. Please make sure to check this manufacturer's compatibility chart prior to purchase.

    Vello LAE-SE-NFV5 reviews

    Select Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Auto Lens Adapter (Firmware Ver. 6) is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the money I recently bought the Sony A7M3 and A9 along with a slew of Sony FE lenses. I decided, however, not to buy the Sony FE macro 90mm and the FE 24-105, hoping that I could make do with Nikon 105mm micro and 24-120 (both G series) after reading reviews of the Vello adapter. The results of my preliminary tests are in. The good news first. The Nikon 24-105 autofocuses with the Sony A9, though not with moving subjects. Now the bad news. The 24-105� lens does not autofocus with the Sony A7M3. The Nikon 105mm micro does not autofocus at all with either camera.� I might have been better off spending a little more and buying the Sony FE 90mm macro. All in all, a disappointing show. And yes, I did upgrade the Vella firmware to version 6.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fails to support stabilization Version 5 has the same problem as the previous version. Steady shot is unusable. If the lens has stabilization on then it stabilizes the image until you press the shutter key halfway at which point it disables it. Exactly the reverse of how it is supposed to work. If you turn off stabilization the lens the camera won't let you enable the sensor stabilization.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great.....Mostly Combined with my Sony A7R III and Nikon G or E Primes it works great. Very Fast (but not as fast as Native Sony lenses) focus in near and far subjects. Performance dips when focusing in low light. Not terrible but could be improved. Focus and eye AF work best with my 20 1.8G, 24 1.8G, Sigma 35 Art 1.4 (Nikon), Tamron 45 1.8, Nikon 105E 1.4. My 28 1.4E is good but not really in low light. My 70-200 VRII is pretty terrible with the focus. Lots of hunting.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Beautifully In our gentle trek from Nikon to Sony this adapter works really well. Autofocus works fast for the lenses I’ve tried and we have been able to use this in our professional workflow without issue.
    Date published: 2018-03-25
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Improved a great deal Works on A9/A7R2, barely on A7S2. Glad Ver 5 fully works with 70-200E lens which Ver 4 did not. Didn't try all my Nikon lens collection because Ver 4 works already including 105/1.4 and older 70-200s. Vello now has the equivalent to Metabone EF to E Ver 5. Well done.
    Date published: 2017-12-07
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works with my current lenses Did my research and it works very well with my current Nikon lenses. Warning do your research before you buy to make sure it works with your lenses

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overpriced and dead after very limited usage Got this for my Sony A7Riii and ii model cameras. Out of the box it was DOA. I called Vello and they had me check most of the screws on either side of the mount. Half of them were loose. That fixed the problem and it worked for all my lenses including a Sigma 150-600mm lens. About 250 shots later with various lenses and after a night shooting it's DOA again. When I returned home after shooting I removed the lens and charged the battery in my A7Riii. Got up the next morning and turned the camera on. Now I hear a fairly fast clicking noise coming from the adapter. Turned off the camera. Turned it back on. Clicking stopped but now none of my lenses are even recognized by the adapter. Can't adjust the F-stop or get auto focus. It has been returned to Vello to fix. Luckily it is still under warranty. I have a trip coming up in a couple weeks to Kauai. After very limited use, I don't think I can even trust a new or repaired Vello adapter to work the entire trip. Guess I'm back to the Nikon D810 for now.
