Vello Select Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Auto Lens Adapter (Firmware Ver.6)
Key Features
  • Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera
  • Works with Full-Frame & APS-C Formats
  • Supports Select G-Type & E-Type Lenses
  • Version 6 Optimizes AF & AE Performance
Breathe new life into Nikon F-mount lenses with version 6 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 6 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 6 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.

    It works perfectly with the A7iii and all of the Nikon glass I have (which is a lot) - I expected there to be issues, but thus far it works great including EyeAF, etc
