Works great

I had originally envisioned using this with my AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 105 f/2.8 thinking that's what the longer adapter tube was for. Not so. But no need to invest in the Micro-NIKKOR 60mm. Works great with the AF or AF-S 50mm f/1.8. Use the 36mm and 20mm Kenko extension tubes and a 52-62mm step-up ring with the short adapter tube. Boom.

Scan of slides withes2 and D850 works well. Need to do a little fix in Denoise and sharpen due to grainy slides. The slide holder does rock in the holder so make sure level before taking picture. Wish they had a medium format adapter too even if it crops would be great.

Too cheaply made

By John

I almost gave it 2 stars because of the flimsy build quality. It does duplicate slides and negatives, as advertised, but it's not designed to last. It's advertised as a "kit" and, given it's purpose, you'd think Nikon would realize that it would be used several times, and all the parts stored together... in the box it shipped in. Well, that's not going to happen! The kit box is thin, very & flimsy cardboard ; most of the parts are wrapped in bubble wrap. NOT DESIGNED TO LAST. The two plastic adaptor tubes have very delicate threads, so be careful because they'll strip easily. Likewise, the metal locking screw on the unit's head will damage the plastic tube used to adjust focusing, if not treated delicately. If Nikon's name wasn't displayed prominently I would have thought this a cheap knockoff.

Works as advertised on Z6ii

I have been meaning to scan the 2,000 or so slides I had taken in the '70s and '80s for years but never felt like shelling out the money for a Nikon scanner. When I got my Nikon Z6ii and read about this adapter I decided it was time. B&H had a used 60mm AF-S G lens in excellent shape so I picked that up as well. I bought a cheap 4"x4" led panel for a light source. The whole process is so simple to do and has great results. I've never seen any of these slides up close so it was a sad revelation to see almost all were not in sharp focus. I'm an amateur and when I shot the slides I was just out of high school using second hand low end gear so I'm not surprised. You can't fix soft focus but none of it a fault if Nikons slide adapter. I have a couple hundred Kodachrome slides professionally shot in the '50s and those are stunning to see on a computer. Super sharp still with beautiful color. This slide adapter is awesome. I highly recommend it if you have a ton of slides. I can attest to various posts I've read about Ektachrome slides looking horrendous because of age. I have a bunch from the '80s and they are flat and faded. Best for b&w conversions in my opinion. I know this adapter is designed for the D850 but used with a full frame sensor and correct lens I don't see why it wouldn't work with any Nikon DSLR or mirror less camera. Another great B&H purchase for me. No regrets at all.

Digitizing Simplified

Simple setup and functional. I wonder why some people go to all the trouble of copystands, light tables, leveling, etc, when this simple solution exists. Minus one star for the high price.

Worth the two month back order wait. It is very easy to use and creates a much better image with my Z7II than with my scanner and is much faster than scanning.

Nikon ES-2 with D500 and 40mm macro

By James

This is the fastest way I have ever used to copy old 35mm slides. I am shooting both raw and JPEG files. Files are not too big with the crop sensor D500. Take your time to frame the photo and you won't have to crop off the rounded edges later. I am using a 500K light bulb in a small desk lamp for a light source. The D500 has a setting for that type of light.

I have a D7200 and an AF-S Micro 85mm 1:3.5 G ED lens. Will this digitizing adapter work with this setup? What are the compromises? I am not worried about reversing negatives.

Will this work with any macro lens with a 52mm filter thread? I have a laowa 65mm macro with 2:1. Will that work?
Asked by: Rivki
I wondered that myself and tried it with my Zeiss 100mm macro and a step down ring and it didn't work. I ended up buying a nice second hand Nikon 60mm macro which is the desired lens. You might be lucky with your 65mm? but the Nikon is 1:1 so not sure compared to your 2:1? Hope that helps.

The filter thread size of the Nikon AF-S Micro NIKKOR 60mm f/2.8G ED lens that this adapter is designed for is 62mm. You may be able to adapter it with the correct step up ring.
