and Olympus Pen Micro Four
Thirds digital cameras
Accepts Nikon F AI AIS AF G
IX DX or independent lenses
- Infinity focus is maintained
- Auto or manual exposure
- Manual diaphragm system
- With caps and instructions
This easy to use adapter allows you to use hundreds of Nikon-fit lenses on your Olympus Pen or Panasonic G-series Micro Four Thirds digital compact system camera. Infinity focusing is maintained (it may focus slightly beyond infinity with some lenses), and as there's no extra glass required the optical quality is not affected. Because of the smaller sensor in these digital cameras, the effective focal lengths are doubled, so a 50mm lens provides the same field of view as a 100mm on a film camera.
You can use manual focusing in aperture priority automatic or metered manual exposure modes, with stopped down metering. You set the aperture on the lens or adapter, and the camera sets the shutter speed automatically. The adapter has its own diaphragm control ring, and you turn this to the Lock setting to stop down the aperture. On lenses with their own aperture rings you use this to set the precise setting you want. On lenses with no aperture ring (such as Nikkor G, IX or DX types) you can adjust the diaphragm using the ring on the adapter instead, and it's continually variable from full aperture (Open) to minimum aperture (Lock), though the precise settings aren't marked.
It's simple to use - you can either fit the adapter to the lens first, then bayonet the combination onto the camera, or fit the adapter to the camera first and then attach/remove multiple lenses as required. The adapter locks securely onto the camera and is released using the button on the body, and a release button on the adapter allows lenses to be removed. This is a generic adapter and the make and style may vary slightly, but all are functionally identical.
Please note that this listing is for the adapter only, and no camera or lens is included.
An essential accessory for Micro Thirds digital users with Nikon lenses!
Condition: Excellent+++ (8.5/10)
The adapter is in very good condition and fully working order. It fits cameras and lenses smoothly (the tension may vary slightly) and locks securely. The diaphragm control ring works smoothly. Cosmetically it shows only the usual signs of use with some surface marks here and there. At the time of listing we have more than one of this item, but the pictures and description here are representative of all of them.
No dents, dings or deep scratches, and overall it's in nice shape!
