Odd choice in that there is no Nikon adapter despite Nikon and Canon being dominant.

So if you want to mostly use the adapter with Nikon G lenses which would you get? The Canon one is $150 more expensive. But I do have a nice Novoflex Nikon to Canon adapter with aperture control. So I could get the Canon version and pay the $150 for no extra benefit over the cheaper ones and use the Novoflex. But how would you use the Contarex adapter which is cheaper. I guess there must be a Nikon to Contarex adapter?

Their site is a mess of possibilities and ignoring mainstream users. They are missing out big time on sales because of this. They need to offer a turn key system for mainstream lenses rather these really odd choices like Alpa (like who has Alpa lenses???).


I see no such adapter. Am I looking in the wrong place?

By god your right!

They must not have released it yet!

That really sucks! im currently saving up for that! Well by the time i save up enough maybe they will have released a Nikon version! Or maybe canon will release some new 50mm's.....either one.
