Sony Alpha 7RII to Nikkor 19mm Tilt Shift Lens Adapter?
« on: February 09, 2017, 03:22:28 PM »

I have just purchased the 7RII and have brought in both the Canon 17 TS-E and the new Nikkor 19mm TS-E.
Purchased the Metabones adapter for the Canon 17 BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO FIND AN ADAPTER FOR THE NIKKOR THAT WORKS.

I do have the Fotodiox adapter but it does NOT work with the Nikkor.

Anyone actually successfully mating the Nikkor to the 7RII, and if so how?

Are you using a manual (mechanical) Fotodiox adapter?  You'll need an electronic adapter to control the aperture.

These are reported to work with PC-E lenses:

I have no experience with either, but have read reports that they are working with newest firmware:

Yes, I know I need an electronic interfaced adapter.

What I'm hoping to hear from is a actual user that has mated the two together.

Thanks

I have sent Brian a message asking for his guidance - hoping for a reply but expect the chap is quite busy.

Will let all know what he says if I hear back.

I think you're SOL, for now:

Yup, SOL!

"Nikon PC-E lenses won't work. While the Commlite/Vello/Fotodiox AF adapters allow you to control the aperture electronically - BUT the shutter will only release wide open."

Appreciate Brian's reply.
