HELP! Nikon-G to Samsung NX Adapter

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm in a real rush to find a Nikon-G to Samsung NX adapter that allows manual aperture control (as I am wanting to use my Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Nikon-G mount lens).

Does such an adapter exist?

Please link me up if so - thank you!!

Hey mate,

Thank you so much for the reply!

The ones you linked were the ones I was looking at earlier, but I was under the impression that they didn't control the aperture ring in Nikon-G mount lenses...

Well, for sure the ones with 'lock - open' do. ;) The others with the silver rings, I'm guessing they are aperture rings too (Roxsen says 'with aperture control ring').

These type of adapters wont:

Is that dummy adapter made from gold and laid-in with diamonds, or what? Those are insane prices. There's not even glass or electronics involved, right? How is that worth 10 times more than other adapters? Even custom made chunk of metal ciecio7 adapters are cheaper than that... Geez.

^I'm using this one or one just like it^

Mine is rainbowimaging I think, but it's all the same.

 

It's been great. I've been using it since June when I bought my nx1 for Nikon AIS stuff as well as my tokina 11-16

Hi guys, am planning to buy a nikon 50mm 1.4d which has an aperture ring on the lense. I ordered also an adapter that has an aperture ring aswell. Do you think is it a problem having aperture rings on both lense and dumb adapter? shell i cancel my order and by a normal adapter? thank you

It will be fine with two aperture rings.

BTW, I can't recommend the ND throttle enough. Aperture ring and built in ND Fader of high quality.

Hey Mattias, no issues with CA when stopped down or anything? Considering one of the cheap EOS to mft focal reducers with the apeture blades here..

If there is any issue its not big enough for me to notice.
I have some samples and side by side in this,

 

BTW, if anyone wants to buy the Nikon to Samsung NX from the video above, I can sell you mine.

Still the same answers as above. There have been no real new adapters, so the ones listed above are what you have to choose from. 

Mine is still working great.

Thanks for answering.
It seems that the Fotasy adapter is the best in terms of quality / price.
Other adapters of the same brand Fotasy work well ?? For example, M42 to NX or C/Y to NX adapters ??

I've bought a few adapters for the NX1, all the similiar cheap Fotasy or Rainbow, chinese stuff.

All have been good enough for me and certainly worth the cheap price point they are at.

I have the Nikon, Canon FD, Olympus Zuiko, M42, Minolta MD, Konica AR and Leica R.

They're all good. For the like $8-15 they are, they're absolutely worth it.

Just don't forget to buy some NX rear caps if they don't come with them.
