An interchangeable mount for manual, mirror and other lenses and accessories, for many Nikon 35mm manual focus, AF and digital SLRs
This interchangeable lens mount is for T mount (also known as T2) manual preset lenses, mirror lenses, slide copiers and other accessories from Soligor, Vivitar and many other manufacturers. It fits many Nikon SLR cameras including the F series, FM and FE series, Nikkormats and even many AF and some digital models with restrictions - see the Compatibility section below for a full list and more information.
The combination works with manual focusing and diaphragm, compatible with metered manual and aperture priority auto exposure modes on most suitable cameras, using stopped down TTL metering or TTL flash where available. Not suitable for program or shutter priority auto exposure modes. The mount is in two parts, and three screws lock them together. The screws can be loosened slightly, the lens rotated in the mount, and the screws tightened to ensure that the scales appear at the top when mounted. This only has to be done once for each mount/lens combination.
Please note that this listing is for the lens mount ONLY, and no lens, camera or other accessory is included. Not compatible with other interchangeable mount systems such as T4, TX, Adapt-a-Matic, Adaptall, Hanimex H, etc.
Condition: Excellent+++ (8.5/10)
The mount is in very good condition and fully working order. It fits cameras and lenses properly with little play, and locks securely. Cosmetically it shows the usual surface scratches and paint wear here and there in the finish. No dents or dings, and overall it's in good shape! 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.
This mount will work on the majority of Nikon and Nikon-mount SLR cameras, as follows:
It fits Nikon AI cameras including the FM, FM2, FM3A, FE, FE2, EL2, FA, FM10, FE10, EM, FG, FG-20, F-301 (N2000), F-601M (N6000), F2A, F2AS, F3, F3HP and Nikkormat FT3, older (pre-AI) Nikon cameras such as the F, FT, FTn, F2, F2S, F2SB and Nikkormat FT, FTn, FT2, EL and ELW, plus the Nikkorex F and original Nikon-mount Ricoh Singlex. It also fits Nikon AF models including the F-501 (N2020, all exposure modes OK), F-601 (N6006), F-801 (N8008), F-801s (N8008s), F70, F90, F90x, F100, F3AF, F4, F5 and F6, the digital D1, D1H, D1X, D2H, D2HS, D2X, D2Xs, D3, D3X, D3S, D4, D200, D300, D300s, D600, D700, D800, D800E and D7000, Kodak NC 2000, NC 2000E, DCS 200, DCS 410, DCS 420, DCS 460, DCS 620, DCS 620x, DCS 660, DCS 720x, DCS 760, DCS 760M, Fujifilm S5 Pro plus some other early Nikon-mount digital SLR cameras. On these models it works with manual focus and diaphragm, with some exposure mode and metering restrictions (usually manual and aperture priority, no matrix).
Many modern Nikon SLR cameras don't support metering with manual lenses and accessories. This includes models such as the Nikon F-401 (N4004) series, F50 (N50), F55 (N55), F60 (N60), F65 (N65), F75 (N75) and F80 (N80), APS Pronea S and 600i, or the digital Nikon D40, D40X, D50, D60, D3000, D3100, D3200, D5000, D5100, D5200, D70, D70s, D80, D90, D100, Kodak DCS 315, DCS 330, DCS Pro 14n, Pro SLR/n and Fujifilm S-1, S-2 Pro and S3 Pro. Even with these cameras, the mount will fit, but you'll have to work out the exposure yourself.
