Qustion reg. Fringer NF-FX adapter

In the last days I was reading about the Fringer NF-FX (FR-FTX1) adapter.

What I understand: This adapter enables autofocus, aperture control, exif data and so on on the from Fringer stated lenses. This adapter does not have any glass inside, means the optical performance of the lenses should not be affected.

My question now to people who already have this adapter: Is it in general worth the invest? Does it "make sense" to use also "old" Nikon glass on my X-T3 body?

The lenses I think about to use with the adapter:

- AF-S VR NIKKOR 70-200mm F/2.8 G (the first version) - my sample tack sharp and great out of focus rendering (definitely better than the Fuji 50-140mm)

- AF-S MICRO NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 ED

- AF-S DX NIKKOR 12-24mm f/4 ED - as I am (still) not a real wide angle shooter I could use this lens for the situations where I need to go wider than what my Fuji 16-55 f/2.8 can provide

- AF NIKKOR 85mm f/1.4 D - the outdated, but at least in my opinion not obsolete, "cream machine" (okay, only manual focus)

Any feedback welcome!
