This particular $10 Nikon adapter for Fuji X mount is labeled K&F Concepts, but there are dozens of similar designs sold on eBay. As I wrote in the previous post about mounting Canon lenses to my Fuji X-T1, the combinations look Frankenstein.
The larger lenses feel really heavy and imbalanced attached to the tiny X-T1. Even the tiny Nikon 50mm looks long thanks to the necessary distance to the body.
The Nikon 50mm + adapter is about as big as the Fuji 18-55mm!
Getting the adapter mounted to the old Nikon lens was tough the first time. (At first, I thought that I had the wrong adapter.) But once on, the adapter has no wiggle.
OMG! What a huge difference it is using a Nikon lens made in the manual focus age vs a new Canon lens made in the AF age!
The focus ring on the old lens:
- Is not recessed and thin (like the new AF lens) so easier to grip
- And turns nearly half way around the barrel vs less than 1/4 turn around the barrel on the Canon (probably to help the autofocus motors work better).
I have been able to manually focus nearly every shot that I have tried so far and get pretty close which is a much different experience than I had with the new Canon lens.
Here is the Canon adapter next to the Nikon adapter.
Notice the slight difference in height. This is probably due to the Canon having a crop factor of 1.6 and the Nikon having a crop factor of 1.5 (which is due to slight differences in sensor size which then results in differences in hardware design).
