Make the most of your existing collection of Nikon F-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter with Aperture Control that will allow you to mount these lenses to a Sony E-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. This model features a built-in aperture control ring that will allow you to control the aperture of the lens for adjusting exposure and depth of field. Also, it has a built-in tripod foot for added stability on a tripod when using long lenses. 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. If the lens does not have a manual aperture collar, the aperture will be stopped down to its smallest f/stop. Focusing to infinity is retained.

This adapter enables the use of Nikon F lenses on Sony E-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.
Made specifically for Nikon F-mount G-type lenses, this adapter features an integrated aperture control ring, ensuring you don't lose control over the lens' operation even when using it on a non-native camera system.
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.

    Nikon F-Mount G Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Adapter with Aperture Control is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good value, but be aware... Fits my kit lens from my Nikon 5100 perfectly (AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm, 1:3.5-5.6 G) and an old Nikkor 50mm, 1.8F just fine. The adapter's manual aperture control works silky smooth on both these Gelded and non-G lenses, respectively. However, the big dissapointment was with my Nikkor AF-S 18-200mm (VR; 1:3.5-5.6 G ED). The tolerance is way too tight, making the adapter aperture control unusable (you have to really twist to get it to work). It works, but again, not in a fashion that would be considered useable. Other than the above issue, which is considerable, I would've given this product 5 stars. Good build quality for the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great! Got a Sony A7s and wanted to adapt my Nikon 'D' and 'AIS' lenses to the FE mount. Since those lenses have their own aperture ring (unlike Nikon 'G'), I could have simply gotten the F-mount version known as LA-NEX-NF, but I wanted to have a smooth non-indexed aperture change capability, and also, borrow my colleagues' Nikon G lenses without a problem.The adapter precisely fit both the male and female lens mounts- not too tight, and no play. The aperture ring operated smoothly.I would have liked if the aperture ring had a different knurling or texture, since it was hard to find by feel.The tripod mount, another feature which differentiates the LA-NEX-NF from the LA-NEX-NG, was useful for its intended purpose, but note that it means that operation of the aperture ring can be awkward.I am overjoyed to give my old lenses new life on the new body, and save money in the process.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works well, watch foot alignment Mine mounted with very little play between lens and adapter and little play between adapter and camera body. I think it would have been fine for video and certainly photography use. There was the slightest movement if you tried to shimmy it, but was almost completely insignificant. The aperture ring worked well and smooth on my various 80's to modern Nikon lens collection. The (seemingly) non-removable support foot on mine wasn't plumb with the lens direction. I'm sure it would be ok, but I will return it and save up for a Metabones speed booster adapter instead.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Why buy more lenses? Very simple to use so Nikon G (and D) lenses can be used with my NEX 5n. no AF, but still beats buying more fast glass for the NEX, which I don't want to do anytime soon.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Confirmation does not work on AFS 18-200 I bought this product mainly to allow my wife to use a Nikkor AFS 18-200 DX on her A6000. Unfortunately, as another poster has commented, although the adapter fits the lens (tightly) the aperture ring is completely immoveable, I'm not sure why. On other Nikon lenses it seems to work OK, although the throw is very small from max to min. I also had a problem with the chrome lens release button breaking off on its first use, but as this has not been mentioned in reviews it may just have been a one-off manufacturing problem.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this. When I bought this I had no need for the aperture control. I bought it because it had the tripod mount. Glad I spent the extra money. I now have a G lens that needs to be stopped down. Even happier now.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from you get what you pay for. Decent priced and operable lens adapter. I bought it to put a nikkor 80-200 mm AI lens on my Sony A7. After the first use the tripod mount bent slightly so when shooting have to compensate by tilting the camera on tripod a little. I ended up getting a Hex wrench and removed the collar. On a good side is the price is low, smooth clickless aperture adjustments. And if you don't want to show off the bling it's a matte black finish with no extra logos on it as the other brands do at a s

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Iris tab doesn't work on some Nikon lenses. The aperture adjustment ring doesn't turn when mounted to a Nikkor 18-200 VR (v1). It does work well on other lenses, like my 35mm f/1.8G and a Tokina 11-16mm DX (non-CPU). The other problem is the Sony E mount side. After mounting it to an a6000, other E mount lenses (native) have about 1mm of rotational play on the mount. This is probably due to poor machining tolerances that forced a part of the body flange loose. Overall, for the price, this is a good utility item to have.
