Nikkor on Fujifilm GFX 50S


The FotodioX Nikon F to Fuji G-mount adapter for the Fujifilm GFX has been incredibly popular lately as Nikon users give the Fujifilm GFX 50S a try and for good reason a lot of Nikon’s lenses cover a large portion of the GFX’s sensor. The other day I came across a review of the FotodioX adapter at Photographylife.com and while it was comprehensive it was a little light on images, so I reached out to our Fujifilm GFX Owners group and Chris Mielke was kind enough to help by sending me a bunch of test photos showing exactly how the FotodioX adapter performs with the following lenses

Chris shot these test shots for himself, but once again he was kind enough to share them with the community so be sure to check out his work on Flickr or Smugmug. He also has a less frequently updated website at www.mielkephoto.com. In Chris’ words:

“I had a rainy overcast cloudy day and my adapter from Fotodiox arrived so I thought I would shoot all of the Nikon FF lenses I had against the grey sky to see which vignetted and whether that vignette was usable on the GFX. I basically racked the camera to infinity and took photos wide open and then two stops down to see how it improved.  I had to convert to a DNG and Edit the EXIF to a Phase One camera so I could use my chosen converter Capture Pro 10.  I then adjusted for white balance and converted to jpg. I did something a little different for the 70-300.  I took photos at 70, 135 and 300 with the same conditions.”

 

Hopefully test photos like these help you decided if the FotodioX Nikon F to Fuji G-mount adapter is right for you. I am trying to secure some Kipon adapters in the near future for testing, but until then our owners group is a great place to ask for help. Also check out the review by Photographylife.com because it has some descriptive analysis of lenses not featured here.
