Price of the NEX Voigtlander adapters in Leica M, Nikon F and Pentax K is the same as the Voigtlander Micro 4/3 Adapters , $179 each plus shipping. The adapters for classic Nikon and Cointax rangefinders (not G series) will be $229.

$8 shipping within the US, $35 internationally for up to 4 adapters
add 9.75% tax ONLY for California sales

Taking $25 Paypal deposits to [email protected]

Leica M adapters expected to ship in August, the other NEX adapters in September.

Thanks
Stephen

Probably a FAQ and may I ask whether the auto diaphragm of f lens etc affect this. M and ltm lens has no such issue as it does not have ttl viewing. Unlike Pentax and hesselblad, the dof switch is on Nikon body. Hence, how to use this adapter for f, Pentax k etc.

I am interested in this option too!
Anyway a 21 mm would work as a 31.5mm on the nex sensor.
Is that possible?

I have a cheapo M Adapter and yes the tolerances are not 100% accurate but with constant use the adapter is doing fine. What value would one get spending $179 for one? No disrespect intended Mr CQ.

My friend has some of these lens adapters, and she swears by them. She tells me that they are absolutely worth the cost. I am probably going to end up purchasing one soon, since I have heard a lot of great things about them. I was wondering if anyone ever reads the reviews on angies list to find a good photographer to hire? I was wondering because I need to hire someone soon, and I'm wondering if you think it would be a good idea to read these reviews before hiring someone. Thanks for your help.

I just purchased a Nikon F to Sony E mount Voigtlander adapter for my NEX 5n. It's a well made, sturdy, piece of kit. Thanks Stephen. A pleasure doing business with you!

Is infinity on the adapted lens infinity on the NEX, or does it focus beyond? I think I need a higher quality adapter than my current Rainbow, and the Voigtlander may be the way for me to go.
