Extended compatibility through adapters
Adapters allow the use of different lenses on various cameras, even if they are not designed for each other and have different connectors. In most cases, an adapter does not change the imaging behavior of the lens, since meticulous attention is paid to this in the design of the adapter. In most cases, it is also possible to focus to infinity, which is no longer possible with some combinations because the lens distance from the sensor is too great.
Kipon MAF-N/Z adapter: Minolta AF lenses to Nikon Z cameras
This adapter allows the use of Minolta AF lenses on cameras with Nikon Z mount. Minolta AF lenses do not feature an aperture ring, the aperture is usually controlled by the camera. When using this adapter, the aperture can be selected manually and continuously through an aperture ring on the adapter. Special caution is required when mounting wide-angle and fisheye lenses on the adapter.
Some adapters transmit the electrical signals between the camera and the lens so that, for example, fully automatic exposure programs and automatic focusing remain available. Others do not, so that the photographer has to operate the lens manually - but even for beginners in photography this is not a real obstacle. With this adapter you can only work manually with Minolta AF lenses.
Compatible also with Sony A Lenses
Lenses of the Sony A series can also be mounted on this adapter. They can also only be used manually. Their aperture can only be controlled on the lens, not through the aperture ring on the adapter. The Minolta AF Mount is also known as Minolta A.
