Nikon DX lenses on F5

Post by fusselcheck » November 17th, 2013, 11:03 am

Has anybody used Nikon DX lenses on the F5 with the MTF adapter? Is there a vignette visible compared to the FX lenses?

It depends on the lens. The sensor is only marginally larger than a DX sensor so in most cases there is no issue, but some lenses might show a barely detectable vignette. I've used a number of DX lenses and they are normally OK.

Today I tested a Sigma 17-50mm 2.8 with Nikon mount on my F5. So far it works fine...
