Vello LA-NEX-NF overview

  • 1Description

Make the most of your existing collection of Nikon F-mount glass with this Vello Lens Adapter 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. 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.
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.

    Vello LA-NEX-NF reviews

    Nikon F Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera Lens Adapter is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 59.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Must know before you buy. I own two Vello adaptors The one for M mount lenses and for Nikon F lenses. They work but they do have some play with the lens on but it doesn't seem to affect image quality. Two of the screws that hold the silver plate on the M mount adaptor fell of and the lense became disconected from it in my camera bag. I called Vello and a few days latter they sent me two screws, not three but two, OK. I put some thread lock on all the screws which is what they should have done maybe. But the one thing you need to know is that some lenses will not focus at infinity with these adaptors. For example my Voightlander 50mm f1.1 does not but my Voightlander 20mm f4 does. My 55mm f2.8 macro Nikkor does but my 35mm to 105 Nikor does at 105mm but not at 35mm. This will mostly not be noticable if you shoot at f8 or smaller but if you were to shoot with a larger apperture the image would be out of focus. If you are going to use these make sure you test your lens wide open at infinnity and decide if you can live with the results. I don't do a lot of landscapes so for me it's not a deal brecker. I do mostly portraits wich present no problem and I'm very happy to be able to use the older film camera lenses, that I feel are superior.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I like it. I received an NEX5 as a gift, although I own a large stack of Nikon equipment. Just for fun, I bought a very cheap adapter from another manufacturer to see how the Nikkors would work on the NEX. The results were ok, but the cheap adapter was wobbly and it was apparent that sooner or later I would lose a lens when if fell off. So I bought this Vello. It feels solid. Image quality has improved too, probably due to tighter manufacturing tolerances. It's always great to see a product deliver as well as you hope. I highly recommend this.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome product on the cheap Nicely packaged by B&H The adapter mated my 50mm F1.4 F lens to the Sony A7R just fine. Since this combination has rendered the camera manual, it does become a challenge. However the picture quality is a wow! Would be nice if there is actually an automatic adapter specially for Nikon/Sony combination.... until then M mode is fun too My newly purchased Rode mic (also from B&H) sits well too ;)

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The money adapter. With the Vello E-Mount adapter I am able to use all my Nikon lens on my Sony a6000. Love the camera and with this adapter I am able to use all my lens and do not have to buy new, expensive ones. Only disadvantage - have to shoot in manual mode. But that is not so bad. Best way to shoot anyway. Highly recommend this addition to your gear bag.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It Works ... That's A Good Thing As many have already said, this adapter works fine on my Sony A7r using both Nikon AF-D and Nikkor AIS lenses (manual focus only). No complaints with the functioning of the product. However, the fit and finish are not the best. The lens side of the adapter has a chrome facing that fits snugly. Sometimes it clicks when the lens seats into the adapter but most of the time it doesn't. The lens release button is small and can be fiddly. The camera side of the adapter does NOT have a chrome plate (just black painted metal that looks to be a continuation of the metal body). This could be considered good since there shouldn't be the possibility of light leaks that may occur when a separate plate is screwed to the barrel of the adapter. However, my guess is that it is made of aluminum and therefore softer than a chromed plate would be, which could eventually lead to wearing of the connection. Also, as stated in other reviews that I've read, the camera body connection is not at snug as the lens side. this doesn't appear to have any negative effect, yet. Overall, I am happy with this adapter and the price is right. I would suggest buying some Sony rear lens caps for the camera side of the adapter if you are like me and end up leaving the lens on the adapter. If not, then you'll need a nikon camera body cap for the lens side and a sony rear lens cap for the body side, since the adapter does not come with caps.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Can still be removed easily (LOL) This product is great for semi-permanently adapting your lens for use on an E-Mount camera. Expect to use a pair of pliers and risk damaging your lens if you ever want to take it off. It is amazing that a product with this simple of a use can be designed so terribly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Adapter Perfect for Nikon F mount (AF-S Nikkor lens with Aperture ring) and Sony NEX-EA50UH camcorder in Manual Focus mode. No friction between adaptor and lens and mounting flange. It would be more perfect if the Alignment Dots were on the barrel instead and they are bigger.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect Fits my Sony a6000 perfectly. Simple to use just follow instructions in camera guide. I now can use my Nikon glass on my Sony. It's also great working my camera in manual mode
