Bower ABNEXFD 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 Bower ABNEXFD Adapter for Canon FD Lens to Sony NEX Camera makes it possible to mount a Canon FD lens to your NEX-3 or NEX-5 camera with a precision mechanical adapter. Such an adapter does not transfer functions such as auto focus from the camera to the lens, so all lens operations (focus, aperture control) are manual.

Bower ABNEXFD reviews

ABNEXFD Adapter for Canon FD Lens to Sony NEX Camera is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bower down in shame The only reason I'm giving 1 star is because this did fit my SONY NEX-VG20 and CANON lenses without a problem. Almost immediately, on the day I received this adapter, the cheap, flimsy aperture ring jammed. There isn't any traction/knurling on the Lock - Open aperture ring to grip so when it jammed to the open position I had to remove everything to figure out that this Bower adapter was defective. I'll be returning this to B&H for a refund as I've found a better built adapter for a more reasonable lesser cost. This is far too expensive at $for what you get. Maybe this one was defective from the factory as most of the reviews were positive. I'm not impressed with the Bower after using a better adapter of another brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS as Promised This works as advertised for canon fd lenses and my nex 7 system. Be sure to learn how to set up nex 7 so lens not attached option is set.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job well! The adapter fit perfectly into the Sony FS100. Now, attaching a lens to it was quite a bit of work, since Canon FD mount lenses have a lock in the rear, and this lock needs to come in contact with the pin that sticks out in the inner circle of the adapter. After this, you then have to press the unlock button on the lens, rotate the locking ring until the lens snaps into place. It's tough only the first time, it'll be easy after doing it several times. The aperture locking ring on this adapter seems to be very delicately constructed, so be careful and rotate it softly. Its functions are: 1) Lock- here the aperture you've set on the lens is locked and cannot be changed. 2) Open - this function allows you to change the aperture on the lens to whatever you need it to be. If you happen to be using a Sony FS100, be prepared to experience a noticeable degree of flaring and ghosting under bright and over-exposed conditions. Nothing out of the extraordinary for any camera using a lens adapter, but it is indeed present and you'll need to adjust you shot compositions accordingly. Overall this adapter does the job well and allows you to mount beautiful vintage lenses to your Sony E system. The optical quality that comes out of the lenses will render it a worth while purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Works great. Gives new life to my old collection of FD lenses. Has two position Lock and Open ring that will locks opne the iris, ensuring that I'm always shooting wide open (if desired)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just works as Mr. Jobs might say Simple device. I haven't tested the Novaflex, but I don't really care to when this Bower connects our lenses just fine for much less. No fear of quality issues. Using on a Sony FS100.
