I'm not sure this is what I wanted. It fits both the camera and lens tube, but the image from the slides I am shooting is zoomed in too close with this adapter. It may be too thick for this slide copier.

This and the camera/telescope adapters are needed purchases!

Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera:

As with the camera adapter tube, this brand specific ring was recommended by the online sales chat and I'm glad we got these all at once with the order. Well made and with adjustability so you can swivel or turn your attached camera to help view the camera. It fit both my Nikon D7000 and D750 cameras perfectly. You must use Manual or Bulb setting when using this attachment and set it as no auto anything will work.
You will need this if you are planning on using your Nikon camera with your telescope.

Nice thick T mount allows me to use an old 500 mirror lens.

Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera:

This T-mount is thicker than one I purchased years ago. The body of my Nikon 5100 sticks out where the built in flash is located. I could not use my older mirror lens. Now I can use it and the Rinkonon lens. Great product.

    Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera:

    I was extremely surprised with the build quality of this T2 adapter from Vello. It feels very solid but not very heavy (would still consider it light weight). The T2 threading is smooth and tightens well, while the F Mount bayonets make a snug and snappy connection. Overall very impressed and I use it with an older reflex mirror 500m lens. I cannot wait to use it on a telescope.

    Comments about Vello Lens Mount Adapter - T Mount Lens to Nikon F Mount Camera:

    It works, no issues - but it "feels" flimsier and grittier (less polished/finished) than the one I had and lost that this one is replacing. Would pick a different brand.

                        I bought this to use with the Rokinon 800mm. The only thing missing is a cap so I can leave it on the lens and close it off when not on the camera body.

                            I bought this for a T ring for mounting my camera on the telescope and it all fits perfect. But also I found that I could also use this adapter for older telephoto lenses. I do believe this adapter is used for microscopes as well.
                            It's a threaded adapter to fit the Nikon bayonet, it's solid metal and there are no cons.

                                      The difference between the flange-focal distance of T2 versus Nikon is 8.5mm. I purchased 10 of these for a project, and they ranged from 9.9 to 10.1 mm thick. That's not even close!

                                        Allows me to use older threaded lenses and bellows on my newer Nikon camers.
