Novoflex NEX/MIN-MD overview

  • 1Description

One of the most appealing aspects of small mirrorless cameras like the Sony NEX-3 and NEX-5 is the availability of a wide range of interchangeable lenses, including non-Sony lenses. This Novoflex Adapter for Minolta MD or MC Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Minolta MD or Minolta MC lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions from the camera to the lens, such as auto focus, but automatic exposure metering (stop-down metering/aperture priority) is possible. The lens will focus to infinity using this adapter.

    Novoflex NEX/MIN-MD reviews

    Adapter for Minolta MD or MC Lens to Sony NEX Camera is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality I bought this adapter mount for my Sony NEX FS-100. It allows me to use all my old Minolta MC and MD primes from the 1970s. Until this was available, I had to make do with a $20 chinese made adapter. It worked but barely, the quality was very low and the lenses would come off while changing apertures if I wasn't careful. This Novoflex is really of great quality, a major difference in fit and finish. A night and day difference. It costs 10 times as much as the one I owned previous but well worth it. The Novoflex has a firm positive fit for both the lens and the camera. Nothing loose, nothing wobbles. Highly recommend.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge light leak from lens release button Works fine most of the time but if you are outside and the sun hits the side of the adapter with the lens release button there is a huge light leak. If you want to check your adapter with the camera turned on and the lens cap in place shine a flash light on the release button and watch the light pour in. I control the problem by wrapping a black velcro strap around the adapter. Unacceptable for an adapter at this price and German engineering.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from An average adapter at an insane price This is the most expensive Minolta SR/MC/MD to Sony E-mount adapter there is. Is it the best? Pros * Well made and sturdy. * Strong springs hold the lens tightly. Cons * The flange focal distance is short, allowing lenses to focus past infinity and making zoom lenses not parfocal. * For some lenses, the lens release button needs to be depressed to mount the lens, not just to release the lens. * There are no baffles or flocking. * The price is insane, especially if you also need the optional tripod mount. The incorrect flange focal distance is egregious given the price and Novoflex's claims of precision. Ultimately this very expensive adapter is no better than an inexpensive adapter like the big_is brand adatper with tripod mount that I'm using now. A Rayqual adapter is also probably worth considering, though I haven't tried one myself.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Life for Good Old Lenses I use the product to adapt my old Minolta MD lenses to the SONY E mount cameras, the Sony Alpha 7R in my case. Even though the specifications only listed the NEX cameras, I figured E-Mount is E-mount and it should fit. It works quite well. A bit tight with the MD lens mount end. Lens functionality, such as stopping down when taking the picture is not supported,but you can stop down manually for depth of field control. Be aware that some MD lenses must be manually set to the shooting arpeture before mounting on camera. The trip lever must be mechanically moved in order to release the focusing full open arpeture. Just look down the lens and move the arpeture ring. It will be obvious what you have to do. Glad to be able to use my old lenses. Macro and Telephoto are not available in E-mount.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basic, Solid, Precise I have used this for a couple of years to mate some of my older MD lenses with both an NEX 5N and A6000. My favorite being the MD Rokkor-X 85mm F 2. I've used it on both the Sony NEX 5N and A6000. I do not have any other adapter experiences to compare this to, but really have never felt the need to try another. This does what I want, it's well built and precise. No problems with lens slippage or loose fit. My only complaint is the price, but that seems to be a common complaint about Novoflex - but then, it was a gift so I can't complain too much about that. I'm currently shopping for some legacy Nikon glass to pair with my a6000 and I will definitely pay the price rather than risk disatisfaction with something more cheaply made.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality ! Use it on my Nex-7 to attach Minolta MC/MD lenses. The price is high but its a very high quality adapter. The first one B&H sent me was way too tight when trying to attach the minolta lenses to the adapter, B&H sent me a replacement and it worked perfectly, just right.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from expensive but solid Works perfectly with my old minolta lenses. There are cheaper adaptors out there...not sure about the quality so I went with this one and paid a little more just to be safe.
