This Pro Lens Adapter from Fotodiox enables the use of your Minolta MD lenses on Nikon F mount SLR and DSLR cameras. It features a durable brass construction with stainless steel finish and a leaf spring ensures a secure connection between the lens and adapter. Additionally, through the use of a 1.4x multi-coated focus correction lens, this adapter is designed to maintain infinity focus. This correction lens can also be removed to render the adapter as an extension tube for macro shooting.

This manual adapter does not maintain automatic lens control between the camera and lens; aperture priority or manual shooting modes should be used, as well as stop-down metering for exposure control.

    Pro Lens Mount Adapter for Minolta MD Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 37.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty awesome The product itself is great. Works great, simple to use. You just have to make sure your Nikon is in Manual mode (it won't work in any other mode, so all you Auto-shooters may not want to buy this). I was trained on film, so the fact that I can now use a manual iris is super helpful. It also works in Video mode, which is also great. I've heard a lot of people complain about light loss, but it really isn't that bad. You lose maybe a stop to a stop and a half of light. I would say it's probably not ideal for low light situations. The only downside is that the camera won't meter with any of these lenses, but that's Nikon's fault not FotodioX.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Great for Me! This product worked great for me and allowed me to use an array of old Minolta MC lenses with my Nikon D5200 DSLR. As mentioned in the description, you lose auto focus (if you use it) and metering. But ultimately, if you know your way around a camera this is irrelevant and you can still develop beautiful photos with a little patience and old school light metering. Had I purchased the equivalent Nikon lenses, it would have cost me over 3 grand. Needless to say, this much cheaper option was a better way to go. Also, thanks B&H for the fast shipping. I received this product 2 days after I ordered it. Great service, and I would buy from again.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from A sad situation The lens arrived on schedule and I immediately fitted it to my Nikon and attached my Minolta MD 16 mm fisheye lens - a lens that I loved to use - and sadly noticed that a) the image was unfocussed and couldn't be corrected and b) that the edges of the image only showed mild curvature instead of the circular mag that I had been used to. What was wrong? I then realized that the NIkon had only a C sized sensor and Minolta lens expected a full size 24 x 36 mm piece of film. Nothing could be done other than to buy a Nikon with a full-size sensor, something quite costly that I do not plan to do. Because of that that the adaptor is useless to me. Sorry.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy I purchased Feels very well-made. Works perfectly attaching my old Minolta lenses (and one Vivitar made for Minolta lens) with my Nikon D5500. Others have said there is no clicking into place, which in my case is not true. It's quieter than I'd like but there IS a click on mine when I put on both the lens and when I attach it to the camera body as well. Others have also said theirs were wobbly and felt insecure, but mine isn't like that. It feels quite sturdy and well-attached. Perhaps they fixed the problem, or others were unlucky? I don't know. Mine is fantastic though and performs perfectly. Absolutely love getting use on a DSLR with these 40 year old manual lenses.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's a Miracle All these years since the dawn of the digital age, my very fine Minolta Rokkor, Vivitar and other 35 mm lenses lay fallow. What a sad and wasteful thing to not use such fine products without having to step back into film with all the expenses and other drawbacks. Last year, on the advice of a friend, I looked into the options and at that time found nothing suitable. But recently, I learned that if my old lenses were the MD types, this mount could connect it to Nikon cameras; in my case, a D5300. The B&H phone rep was knowledgeable, helpful and in short order, pun intended, the adapter arrived. It works as advertised. I have a Minolta lens that zooms out to 210 mm on the 35. It lives again to bring images in and just as sharp as the old film. Make sure you understand the most important thing about this approach, which the rep was crystal clear about: With the adapter, the DSLR functions only in manual mode. The D5300 dial is set to M and the camera will let you set the shutter speed. After that, you use the zoon ring, aperture ring and focus ring just like the old days. On a fixed lens, of course, it's just the focus and aperture. I have the camera set for a quick review of the shot, so I can make adjustments. It's not that hard and with practice, I (and you) will become more facile with it. It's not the perfect solution, but with practice at focusing and exposure, the phots I've gotten are clear, crisp and a joyful experience.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not for Beginners This adapter functions perfectly. However, you must use the aperture ring on the lens and manual focus. If you have a pretty good understanding of the aperture/ISO/shutter triangle, you will do well with this. Image quality is very good but don't expect every image to be tack-sharp. I found that in the middle of the aperture range for the lenses I've tried with it works best. For the money, it's fun to play with some different glass.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again The Fotodio X adapter is very well made, all metal construction supporting the optical lens, and works well on my Nikon D3200. It is definitely worth the cost, at this very reasonable price. I have 6 Minolta MD Rokkor lenses left over from my shooting film days, so being able to use them on my D3200 would be a great bonus. So I purchased the Fotodio X adaptor and I'm very happy with the purchase. The adapter works very well, the photos are very clear and sharp. You just have to make sure when focusing on a subject your focus is spot on.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works great with Nikon D3200 I use the Minolta adapter for Nikon on my D3200. I have a Minolta 50mm f/1.4 lens and it fits perfectly on my D3200. The photos are sharp. The only drawback to using the Minolta lens is it can't be used in Auto mode, but other than that the adapter does its job and it's made well. I recommend it for any Minolta/Nikon users, even just to have it to play around and experiment with.
