I bought this adaptor to use my Nikon 80-400mm lens on my GH4. Since i film a lot of wildlife, i wanted the benefit of the crop factor that the GH4 gives me with this lens & adaptor combo. The finish is nice, the machining of the aluminum is well done. The only slight problem is that there is play on both the body side & lens side, so in all, the body can turn a bit in relation to the lens. Roughly 1/8" i would say.
I had the same issue with a much more expensive adaptor for my last camera, so it seems it is not manufacturer specific.

I'm surprised by all the great reviews because this product did not work for me at all. I used this on my Panasonic GH4 for a sigma 18-35mm lens for a Nikon. The adapter did not let enough light in. The image quality was absolutely horrible. I tried the lens on a nikon and it was 100% different. The adapter did not work for me. It connected the lens and camera but portrayed horrible image quality. Would not recommend.

Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Camera:

With this little device I can now use my Nikon lenses with my Olympus EM-1, albeit manually, but best of all I can now use my lens baby with my Em-1 and it's much easier to use on the 4/3 camera because of the size, much easier to handle and manipulate.

      The product itself was well made, fit tight and all the edges were clean. This review is more about the company I bought it from. I'm a first time buyer and the web site made the search for this adapter quick and easy, delivery was time was very reasonable. I will definitely use B&H for my video and photography needs.

              Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - Nikon F Mount Lens to Micro 4/3 Camera:

              On my Lumix GX7, it's a bit long and my 55mm Nikor macro focuses only out to about 50 feet when set to infinity. Not really a problem for me as I bought the adapter for macro work. Aperture priority works on the GX7 when there is no EXIF coupling info. I'm limited to AIS lenses, but that's as exoected.

The only slight problem is that there is play on both the body side & lens side, so in all, the body can turn a bit in relation to the lens. Roughly 1/8" i would say.

                    Its an adapter. Its fairly solid. Perhaps a little wiggle as its a bit on the cheap side but not terribly so. You won't be shooting video on this anyways (most likely)so shouldn't be an issue.

                      I use the adapter on my Olympus E-M5 to attach manual focus Nikon lenses, which focus sooo smoothly! The product has appears to be all metal with chromed surfaces toward the camera and the adapted lens. There's no problem in viewing wide open and stopping down to shoot -- mostly landscapes which I do. The adapter still keeps my load light (reason I went into MFT) and I avoid the expense of the longer MFT zooms.

                        I recently bought this for my GH3. It works great for the price. I actually had a novaflex as well but this thing when it comes to the image quality is just as good. The only thing is it doesnt have a apature ring but shouldnt be a problem with manual lenses.
