    Nikon G to Sony FE/E mount adaptor London?

    I guess I've decided to get either a Metabones or Novoflex G to E adaptor but can't find anyone in the UK that has them in stock, other than cheaper options on eBay from Kippon etc.

    Does anyone know if there's anywhere in London that might stock something suitable to buy in store preferably?

    Thanks in advance!

    And has anyone heard of or used a Mike Tapa MTF adaptor? They are expensive and that might mean they are good...

    In case you don't find anything in London, but find yourself in Berlin, the Sony Style store at Potsdamer Platz had the Novoflex adapter in stock when I was there last.

    Looks like a nice adapter. Like to know more about it myself.
    Photography is all about experimentation and without it you will never learn art.

    It is pretty simple, Guy. There is a blue ring, which stops down the aperture. Set it to small ring (stopped down), and you can use the aperture ring on the lens. If there is no aperture ring, the blue ring does the job (with no markings though).

    But that's not a problem.
    One can use the camera lightmeter to set the aperture.
    With best regards, K-H.

    Tim, i think these are "crop" FoV. Will work on FF, but will only give a crop image.

    "Note! Using this adapter will introduce a magnification factor of 1.54x with full 35 mm format lenses, no crop with DX lenses"

    Given that the EVF is so good, at this point we might be able to actually look at the scene, and choose aperture based on what it looks like... You can even see CA.
