Many will probably ask why I didn't test a Novoflex. Short answer, I should have. I didn't discover them until after the testing was done on all of these adapters. I hope to try one soon and do a follow-up video.
Just my opinion.I find the music to be distracting.
great analysis! in the future, if wish to take your dimensional data adquisition to another level, I humbly suggest using a micrometer instead of a caliper. It makes it easier to achieve squareness at the time of measuring and its rigid design makes it most reliable. One way or another, great job in sharing your insight on the matter!
try novoflex. its the best.
Honestly I believe quality control issues could lead to not consistent products so deciding which is best based on only 1 sample each is not fair, probably if I buy the same brands I will get different results. In any case I believe not all is lost, all adapters comes with 4 screws on the ring housing the lens, I didn't try but I'm pretty sure those little discrepancy could be fixed by acting with the screws and probably some thread-lock (in case). maybe 3 screws would have been easy to tweak and obtain a perfect plain.
I think tollerances of around 0.1mm are present on the lens ring itself.
Another interesting discussion about adapters will be light filtering in trough the (even if very little) gap between the rings, if you try a long exposure shot with a ND filter you'll find there is ligth sneaking in.
Well shit I own a Gobe M42-MFT adapter lol but I haven’t noticed any loss in sharpness. Guess I need to buy Fotasy from now own for my vintage glass
Love the disclaimers on fuji or FF :p
What lens was the video shot on?
First of all, Dearly thank you for this great job you executed that should be priceless for many who understand and are in need in this very revealing field of photography.
Having said that and the fact that I can't thank you enough for that, please allow me to point out a few flaws in your review, only to be constructive critiques for the sake of a better future and not any God forbidden troll or likewise.
I see you love your Fuji and had a 50mm Nikkor to test but honestly, 50mm is too light a lens and gravity talks big here. Besides the logarithmic importance & prominent effect of the long FL (Focal length) lens to show and magnify the flaws of a badly made adapter. A point you may want to consider on future tests.
1:53 Oh no. I'm not a fan of FF alone, as I do shoot all the time, both with all kind of sensors and like APCs, especially the petite of all M4/3 but the new high rez, high pixel FF sensor do show the flaws in the build quality of adapters, much more significantly or prominently. So here, the choice of Full Frame sensor could make a difference.
That is besides some other problems s.a. Canon 5Ds that have apparently Trump type mirror (Bigger size (Physically-not mentally) than others) so the mirror gets stuck to the back of certain badly made adapters while shooting!. Yes, you may have no problem with the longer flange distance of your mirrorless Fuji but others do have significant problems in this department that you totally missed.
So maybe of note to add this to your future tests and good recommendations for the sake of perfection as I know, that is your sole aim.
8:31 You confuse the viewer at this point. If ever you make a revision ever, make a revision also at this point for better understanding.
4:26 I wish but sorry if I have to disagree on this. As a person who has very many adapters, I have seen some really really badly built ones, even some that due to no quality check, some copies of the same company, misses the infinity focus when another copy not (And they were all promised to focus infinity). This is beside the wiggling ones that you can potentially miss the section of focus due to gravitational pull of lens and worst of all God damn them! One company that had made such a bad lose adapters for Nikon (Bad latch design that doesn't engage any more overtime or even some, right out of the box) that won't lock when attached and my very expensive, always petted Nikon CAT 500mm F5 ( the Nippon Kogaku 500mm F5.0 Reflex Nikkor Mirror Lens), accidentally fell off the camera, that's when I was trying to focus for stars in a dark night and of course, as bad things happen, this had to be in front of 17 steps of the staircase and so did my baby tumbled all the way down I guess you guess how much I hate them! TG lens stood the insult but my heart is broken.
Bottom line. Pay a bit more or go with the unbiassed genuine reviews so you don't be SAD or cheated at the end.
13:39 TOTALLY agree with you on this extremely important point. The main problem with any product coming to form China or the far east (Except high-quality Japan's products and some of the So Korea products) is truly that lack of QC or Quality Control and one sample (UNFORTUNATELY) is not representative of the entire batch of the product!
This would explain the cause of many arguments some of your viewers may come within the comments as their inference may be quite right and opposite to what you expressed here but that could simply be due to receiving a better random copy rather than what most are!
Again thanks for making this very nice, useful review that I found very informative.
(Side note: Please secretly let me know your eBay user name to add it to my black-list of sellers I must avoid 16:58) But appreciate your honesty, A typical good American. So please Everyone VOTE for the better of our great 3rd is almost here. GBA.
I put a canon lens on a canon to Sony adaptor. It is a manual focus adaptor, but I cannot change the focus on my lens when I turn the focus wheel. Why is this?
Thanks god I found you! :D Im also about to buy an X-T3, but im currently a Nikon user. I was about to "upgrade" to Sony, but after I magicially found out this 10 bit, inbody headphone output, I finally found the perfect camera between the Blackmagic PC4K and the Sony Alpha series. However, Im struggling to find an adapter, which wont reduce the image quality of my Nikon mount Sigma ART lenses. So if Im understanding your video, the Fotasy adapter is the one for me, to who adapting sharp lens is important? :D But can I buy any of them in Europe? I cant find them on european market.
Dude. what kinda light do you have setting to your left? Thanks.
Can you test a wide angle vintage lens like 28mm with those adapter, is it all vignetting or only the lens I use, I use 28mm accura diamatic with cheap adapter to sony a7r mark ii.
Thank you for this. Appears to be very sound logic.
(appreciate following up with your adding the perspective that this is only a sample of quantity=1. (which was enough data for the poor performer, but not enough samples/data to confidently claim championship status among the top performers.))
personally, I would have just assumed that this area you measured would have been near perfect. Why did the manufacturer mess up on this dimension, which is so critical ! other than sloppy work, hurrying the machining process, not bother to measure and discard what is off, or have very loose standards for what is acceptable.
What do you mean by "ml" in the weight topic? Isn't it supposed to be "grams"?
Hi Bro Andrew, may be you could test a Sony full frame body could be the newest one the A7C sooner when released or just the A7iii or A9 and test with the only one lens of Fujinon XF 50mm F1.0 lens.
I was sure my guy was going to say he purchased a coordinate measurement machine :')
Next time make longer video. You are time waster.
I just did a review on the Metabones EF to X Mount Speedbooster adapter!
This is what I am looking. Just bought 800mm lens and it was not saving the pics on my Nikon d3500 cam.
Thank you. This answered a question I had.
what is the advantages of a T lense? is it for astrophotography and like deep zoom?
Will these lenses work on the older model DSLR cameras such as a Sony Alpha A200?
Thank clear and sharp.
Man all that cheating steals away 75% of the light.
Still having issues. My Canon EOS Rebel T7 doesn’t have the setting to disable or enable release w/o
Thanks for this video this is really helpfull.
Thank you. It appears that the problem I am having is not in the mounting, or operation of the camera. No matter what happens, my T-mount 500mm f/8 reflex lens with a T-mount doesn't focus uniformly across the field of view, when used with any of my Nikon cameras. I wonder if using a converter ring, any converter ring is the culprit. Perhaps this dumb lens of mind, with this T-mount needs some kind of T-mount camera.
I recently purchased a Tele Astranar 400mm f/6.3, I noticed it does not have a screw for the T mount, on the outside would I need another lens mount type?
I have a Nikon D7200 and a Nikon D90 where can I get this T-mount adapter for my Nikons?
Could not be clearer. Well done explanation.except, does this apply to T2 mounts also?
What a price this lans
really good - just what I needed to know thanks - love my old Nikkor lens - they are built like tanks and amazing quality
Here after 7yrs
Can I use it to mount Nikon Glass on the BMPCC 6K? It's got an EF Mount but just want to be sure.
for those who are wondering, we do not also adapt the Nikon lenses in version Q, I tried with the Fotodiox adapter ring, it works well.
Very good evening
Thanks a lot
How is the auto focus?
Hi, i want to use my old nikon nikkor 24-105 mm on my canon eos m6. I bought another adapter but wont focus. Please help which fotodiox or adapter would work.
Thanks. You saved me the trouble of making a similar video. I'll be sharing with other astrophotographers. Nikkor lenses are great for astronomy photos. And the best astro-camera adapters take EOS lenses. So folks can use Nikkors or newer EOS lenses thanks to the adapter. (Note about the adapter: Some people panic that the adapter is permanently locked to their lens because they try to remove it counterclockwise, like the common "lefty-loosy, righty-tighty" proverb. Nikkors are "righty-releasy, lefty-locky". End of panic.)
Can't you release that adaptar ? My problem
Does thisnadapter auto focuw
I'm pretty new to all of this, can I ask if I can go Cannon lens to Nikon also with a different lens adapter?
Does it has also infinity? Because the distance insode the 2 brands has a different distance to the lenses.
Great video most useful, simple and to the point :-)
Love this adapter I've had for a few years and use it all the time, for video and IR photography on my Canon 5DII
Hi. I have an urgent question: in a Tamron 18-270 the image stab (a.k.a. VC) will work using a 10 dollar adaptor?
(I have Canon camera and I found a Tamron lens for vert good price.)
I only worried about the image stab. The rest no trouble cause I make videos with manual focus.
But the image stabilizer needs some voltage to get from the Canon's battery . Am I right?
So does the very basic adaptor cover such support?
I've fixed Nikon lens using the same adapter to the Canon body, but now, I'm not able to remove the lens. Please suggest what has to be done.
This is great- thanks for all the info-I really appreciate it
I've it on Nikon 85mm lens but the aperture is zero on camera ?
IST WORKING FOR THE 35MM 1,8 DX
Would this fit to my Tamron 70-300mm lens
Do you have any adapter to mount Canon EF lenses to Nikon with autofocus capability
Nice! I'm a long time Nikon shooter who has recently acquired FujiFilm X-T30 in silver, witch looks just like Your X-T20. I'll be happy to use some of my old manual focus and D type lenses with the X-T30 and focusing manually. I also have Nikon E series 50mm lens, my is older, all balck version. Thanks!
Can you give Purchased link ?
I'm using a Fotodiox Fujica X film camera lens to FX adapter and I could not get my X-T3 to fire. Thanks for pointing out the proper menu settings. Once I followed your instructions I was back in business.
The way you talk about camera equipment makes me excited for the next time I use mine
I saw the cat climb over the fence @ 4:54
Waukegan = Wah Kee Gan
What's the point of drinking water right after you started recording? Odd to stop for something like that which could've been done before. Well I guess, a man has to drink.
Whats the point of this adapter if you cant change the aperture if u have a newe lense like the nikon 50mm afs 1.8? That just doesnt make sense?
How can I put the zeiss Otus 85mm to the Fujifilm xt20
