Vello LA-NF-MD Overview

Make the most of your existing collection of Minolta MD-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Nikon F-mount camera. Precise construction makes it easy to attach these adapted lenses to your camera and keeps it secure during use. Infinity focus is guaranteed, ensuring that you get proper functionality our of all your optics. In order to achieve infinity focus, an optical glass element is used, which features a coating to minimize the chance for glare and reflections. Additionally, the adapter is made from a durable zinc alloy and features a matte black finish on the inside to reduce the potential for glare and reflections that can negatively impact image quality.

Although the lens will fit physically, autofocus, automatic diaphragm (AE metering), and other functions dependent on communication between camera body and lens will be disrupted by the lens adapter. You will need to focus manually, and to set exposures manually or meter in aperture priority (stop-down) mode. Focusing to infinity is retained. Additionally, the adapter adds a 1.4x magnification to the image.

This adapter enables the use of Minolta MD lenses on Nikon F-mount cameras, meaning you can now use your existing stable of lenses on your current camera. It is also very secure, holding the lens in place without any wobble sometimes associated with the adapting process.
Thanks to precise manufacturing, this adapter is guaranteed to provide infinity focus by placing the lens at the correct distance from the sensor. This allows you to make the most of your lenses and doesn't limit you from shooting distant subjects.
Made from a durable zinc alloy, this adapter will withstand many uses and won't wear or break in the way soft brass or cheap plastic would. Also, an internal matte black finish reduces reflections and glare, ensuring your images look sharp and contrasty.

I had been gifted a few old Minolta lenses by my father in law and we both thought they would work with my Nikon FG but low and behold they did not. Luckily I found this adapter and everything works perfectly! I cannot wait to get my film developed and I couldn’t be happier with this adapter!

Install my old Minolta MD lenses, from an X500, on a Nikon D5100 DSLR. Marabillous the operation. They adapt perfectly and the photos you take are a pleasure.

Lo que temia acerca del producto se cumplio.... solo logro hacer fotos en macro!!!! no tienen nada de nitidez las fotos. La lentilla no cumple la funcion, pues no tengo fotos nitidas. Lo utilizo con una lente VIVITAR 135  2.2 y con una lente VIVITAR 85-205 made in japan. Mi camara es una Nikon d5300.

used for a 400 mm Tele-Astranar lens

Worked well, completely manual, as expected.  I found best results using aperture priority and opening the aperture fully to focus and then stopping down.

Vello Adapter Mount Works As Advertised

This adapter mount is a great idea. I can now use my older Minolta MD lenses with my Nikon camera. Even better than a great idea is the fact the it works! While it is a manual exposure and focus, I can tell just by looking at the digital screen if I need more exposure or less. I like landscape photography, so I am not in a hurry.   This is definitely worth the price for me.

Since I couldn't make my old Minolta X500 diguital, I managed to pad it to a Nikon D5100 with this adapter. It's great. You can relive the experiences of my X500 but in a diguital body. If you like the manual photo and analog lenses, think about it, it's good
