So here it is: I am considering getting a good old manual nikkor 50mm f/1.2 And I wonder if there could be any problems using it on my sony a7r?
Will it work? Do I lose in quality or anything?
PS: The adapter I use has no optical elements in it.
It will work perfectly in my experience and I use a cheaper $30 adapter. There are a few things to remember:
As far as quality goes it is impeccable. I shoot almost exclusively with old manual lenses including Nikkor and its brilliant. I get no real difference in quality than I did when I was on an actual Nikon body but all of the resolution, sensor, and EVF goodness.
Yes it will work, but obviously as a manual only lens. There shouldn't be any notable loss in quality, however there may be some in the corners depending on the combo's precision.
