    Hello all,

    I have a set of Zeiss ZF Nikon F mounted lenses I'd love to play around with on the Komodo. Does anyone have any adaptors they recommend?

    I think I could also possibly use my Nikon to EF mount adaptor on the EF to RF adaptor provided with the camera. Could lead to some focusing issues though.

    Thanks

    Sort of go up and down in price from there.

    I'm using this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    It works just fine with all of my nikon glass, infinity focus and all. I really don't care for the aperture ring (it clicks and has a really short range) but it works fine with the few 'G' lenses I have. And yes stacking an adapter that is meant for a particular lens<>body connection with a second one will yield unintended results as you mentioned your post. It would probably work in the same capacity as adding a macro tube, and you'll probably be only able to close focus.

    Positive locking mechanism is fantastic. You get what you pay for with this one.

    they have both manual and aperture ring adapters.
    I only wish there was an Nikon F/G adapter with built in nd.

    Whoah -- C7 makes a Pentacon Six -> PL adapter? Wow. I should check to see which lens mount my Kiev 88CM has -- because I have a Hartblei Super Rotator lens for that camera still...

    Time to do some digging (haven't unpacked that camera since my last move).
