This Pro Lens Adapter from Fotodiox enables the use of your Konica AR 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 Konica AR Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from FITS LIKE A CUSTOM GLOVE! This item, adapting my manual AR (Konica/Adaptall2-K/R) lenses to my Nikon D5100, is a perfect and secure fit. I was surprised that it even came in its own soft case (really saves stuff from damage in a full camera case!). Since I am using it for long distance terrestrial and astronomy application it couldn't be better! (Well, that being said, I wouldn't mind it being a little larger in outside diameter and knurled, but those would only help cosmetically because my lenses are so large).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!
