In Topic: Visions of Nikonos 15mm FF on mirrorless Nex housing?

27 January 2013 - 03:46 AM

I am afraid it will not work. The nauticam nikonos adapter already places the Nikonos lens at the correct distance from the NEX sensor so it's image will be in focus only without additional adapters. The metabones adapter will do the same when used directly between the camera an the lens it converts (if they ever make one that fits your nikonos lens..) But then the combo will not be watertight, and there is not much use in putting an additional port around the 15mm+adapter combi.
It will work with e.g. full frame canon lenses, for macro this might be a good solution, if you can find a port that fits.

I just got the Sea&Sea 12mm f3.5 fisheye for nikonos fit to try on the NEX with the nikonos adapter. Will give almost the same field of view compared to the 15mm on full frame, only this is a fisheye...
