Refitting D800 with Df AI tab ring
6 months ago

The new Nikon Df has an AI tab, that can be flipped backward, out of the way of the lens mount, to allow the attachment of pre-AI lenses. This feature, available in pre-digital times with the Nikon FE, F3, FM3a, was lost on modern digital cameras, even pro models like the D3, D4 or D800 don't have it anymore. Now Nikon reintroduced it with its Df.

I would love to use my pre-AI lenses on the D800.

Since the F-mount and the diameter of the ai tab ring look very much alike on Df and D800, I am wondering whether a D800 can be refitted with this new ring. Does anyone know?
