If you are a Nikon user thinking about making the switch to Sony cameras, you probably wonder what adapter could help you make a smooth and cheap transition by keeping your precious glass. In this video, Matt Granger shows you the different adapters available for you and which one is the best — or the less bad.
Switching from one camera manufacturer to another is always a pain because of all the lenses accumulated that must be replaced. It can be difficult to sell them, and it's not rare to lose a bit of money along the way. With the mirrorless systems, what's great is the possibility of using adapters to keep the glass from our current system. Many Canon users have had a smooth transition by doing so, but we hear less Nikon users telling similar stories.
Some may be tempted to say that it’s because Nikon users don’t switch, but the truth is that the adapters for Nikon F lenses are not so good. In the video above, Matt Granger tries three current options and compare them. As you’ll see they do work, but the result is far from optimal, and that’s with a static subject. One can only wonder how it’d perform in real-world situations such as in low light environment or with a fast moving action in front the lens.
