Nice piece of equipment.

Came quicker than it was supposed to. I like it because you can easily use it between multiple lenses . I have one for pentax and need a flat small screwdriver to remove. This Nikon has a easy red button like a normal lens to remove.

Highly recommended!

All metal with very good finish. Easily used with excellent focal range to infinity as designed. Don't let those sharp, Konica AR lenses sit on a shelf....

TAKE THOSE KONICA LENSES INTO THE FIELD

WELL BUILT WITH ALL METAL CONSTRUCTION INCLUDING A COATED LENS (FOR FOCUS TO INFINITY); EASILY DEPLOYED, WITH EXCELLENT RESULTS. BRING THE LEGACY LENSES OFF THE SHELF AND INTO USE WITH CONFIDENCE.

Perfect, solid and easy to use.

It's solid, lightweight, cheap and it can focus to infinity.

Definately worth the money

First of all, here is the equipment I'm using to test it: Nikon D7000 (16MP), Nikon 18-200mm VR (not VRII), a Konica 80-200mm f/4.0, tripod, and Vello wireless release. Summary: Definitely worth the money if you have a Konica AR lense you want to use. Test Technique - I mounted the D7000 on a tripod and used a Vello wireless shutter release to reduce any shake. I focused the camera manually using a loupe on the display with the display zoomed to maximum. The subject was a tree about 100 yards away. I focused on the leaves. I set the Konica lense to 140mm to give an equivalent zoom length of 200mm (taking into account the adapter's lense) and compared this shot to the same shot using Nikon lense set to 200mm. I then opened the raw images in Photoshop and zoomed to 400% where I could see individual pixels. After careful examination, I could see no noticeable difference in the two shots. I looked at the sharpness of the leaf edges and chromatic aberrations about 1/3 out from the center of the images. I realize that chromatic aberrations and sharpness issues will be more obvious at the image edges, but the best spot to examine the leaves was not at an edge. Also, the D7000 is only 16 megapixels which limits how far you can take my test results. And the Nikon 18-200mm lense is not one of Nikon's sharpest lenses. But the results were good enough that my conclusion is that if you have an AR lense you want to use, this adapter is definitely the way to go. The cost of this adapter is a whole lot cheaper than buying a new lense. Two gripes I have are the adapter came with a front cap but no camera body cap even though the What's in the Box section says it comes with capS. Maybe it was a Fotodiox packing error. Also, the pouch could be made out of better quality material, especially considering it came with only one side capped. However, I have an extra body cap so I'm using it on the adapter. And I'm buying it for the adapter, not two caps and a bag so I'll keep it. It just gives a sense of cheapness that isn't really deserved.

not as useful as expected

I liked the idea to bring old Konica AR lenses back to use on an Nikon digital body. 28mm 3.5; 50mm 1.4 and 135mm 3.5 were used on an Nikon D800 body. mechanically the adapter works well but its not holding up to its promises optical like. the 50mm is wide open extremely soft, the 28mm sharp only in the center wide open. but it's still possible to achieve some nice photos just think of an special filter not on front of the lens but between body and lens. maybe the adapter is more useful on an camera body that doesn't needs the extra piece of glass in the adapter. that would also get rid off the 1.4 factor. good luck

Works exactly as advertised.

With the help from B&H online chat, I was able to get my questions answered which helped me purchase the adapter. This meant I now have the use of several great lenses I otherwise could no longer use. I'm very happy!
