If there’s one thing that German photography accessories manufacturer Novoflex is known for, it’s lens adapters. Sure, they don’t have fancy speedboosters and autofocus compatibility like Metabones, but they make some of the best manual lens adapters out there.
And now Nikon Rumors reports that Novoflex is going to be bringing out a dozen of them for the Nikon Z mirrorless system. Yes, twelve manual focus legacy lens mount adapters for the Nikon Z mirrorless system.
The adapters to come will allow you to mount lenses with the following mounts to Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras.
- Canon FD (not EOS)
- Leica M
- Leica M39
- Leica R
- Minolta MD and MC
- Minolta AF/Sony Alpha
- Novoflex A-Mount
- Olympux OM
- Pentax K
Novoflex lens adapters are not inexpensive, especially considering they’re manual adapters, but they are extremely well built with very smooth and snug tolerances. I bought a Novoflex EOS/NIK adapter back when the Canon 5D Mark II was still the king for DSLR video so that I could shoot one with my Nikon glass. It still works as good as new today, a decade later.
As I said, Novoflex typically isn’t cheap, but I haven’t seen prices mentioned for these so far. They’re set to be released in November.
