    Great product for a reasonable price. Allows focusing to infinity thanks to glass element. Build quality is good, seems to be durable. It moves a little bit in the camera mount of my Nikon D5100 (just a little bit of rotary movement when manually focusing on lens). Little difficult to remove from lens. When I want to take it off the lens, I just unscrew ... Read more

    product quality is quite collected. Material comfort and quality. Contact is good and tight. Not a big size adapter is very convenient! Objectives of the company "Zenit" and some other old obektivy perfect fit. Very expensive! Because of the extremely simple designs are not available, and many of the functions to work by hand. But this is ... Read more

    It is easy to use. The presence of a compensating lens that allows you to frame the lens at infinity. Used with a lens Helios-44M from fotoappatara "Zenith" - together with Nikon D800. Prizoditsya the sharpness manually. Satisfactory image quality with minimal edge distortion. Mounted on the lens without effort. When replacing oektiva adapter ... Read more

    This lens adapter is metal and very durable. It has correction lens that allows focusing to infinity. It fits very well on my nikon d5100, and i'm using it with my old Helios 44-2 lens which is great bokeh performer :) I also think that correction lens doesn't have significant influence on image quality, so overall it's a great product. As mentioned ... Read more

    Made of steel. Very simple to use. I'm using it with Nikon D5100, Nikon D90 and Hellios 44M and Hellios 44M-4. Focus to infinity is possible only with glass mounted to the bottom of adapter. But glass is ok, clear and does not affect photography. Price should be lower! Once mounted is really hard to remove. My advice is to apply only a drop of motor ... Read more

    - Its not really expensive considering the fact that its not just an adapter but also has a corrective lens. - no screws on the nikon side that could prevent taking the adapter off your body. - sturdy metal alloy - corrective lens for infinity focus works as expected not much cons I can see for this moment. it fits, it works. Price could be a bit better ... Read more

    the product is fine for the price, i used on nikon d5100 camera, manual mode. Before use, set proper White balance for best picture. For night picture use higher ISO (800) and 1/30 shouter speed. there is little more space in the security tab on the camera, which can cause a shift in focus. I will use a small layer of super glue or something I break ... Read more

    1. With it i can use old soviet lens on my Nikon D5100. 2. Focusing on infinity, and even a little furthe. 3. No gaps in bayonet. 4. Lens can be removed and install without tools. 1. At full aperture frame fuzzy. 2. There is no chip to communicate with the camera, with lower models, only works in a mode M. 3. Reduces the amount of light. Overall an ... Read more

The ... Read more
