Team,

What's the best adapter to mount Nikon F mount lenses on a Sony E body?

Thanks.

Cheers,
Bernard

Thanks, I know this one very well. ;)

And thanks for the other advise! Isn't there an adapter that works with E lenses?

Cheers,
Bernard

Bernard,

Not from Novoflex as far as I know.
The only such adapter is one from Techart (of which I know nothing about ..)

This has nothing to do with photography, itís just about shutting up the Sony fanboys and pleasing the many people I know at Sony. ;)

Besides I already owned two Sony cameras, so nothing new under the sun really.

Cheers,
Bernard

I have three Novoflex adapters and they're lovely but I do have to say that the very cheap ones I've bought from the famous auction/sale site seem to work just as well and apart from a Leica M to Sony adapter that wouldn't allow focus at infinity they've all been perfectly fine which does make me think twice about paying Novoflex prices in the future. In fact I wont buy another dumb Novoflex as they seem to offer nothing over the much cheaper ones except coming in their own plastic box.

I have a metabones adapter that works quite well. Not autofocus, but it controls the aperture of G lenses.

Hello, the Commlite CM-ENF-E works with some restrictions even with Nikon E-lenses on the A7RM3 but not with the A7R or A7RM2. The mount of these older Sony's has definitely too much play which results in chaotic behavior of the camera (not recognicing the lens etc.) unfortunately the A7RM3 does not work with the 19mmTS lens. I tried the CM-ENF-E PRO but even this new released adapter does not solve the problem with the TS.

I use the Commlite to mount the PC-E 24, 45, and 85mm lenses on my A7RIII. It works well but occasionally fails to stop down for the first image. I see itís overexposed and just make another which is usually fine.
