    I have a lot of Nikon lenses. Wondering how they work on G3. Any special adapter brand? If Nikon lenses work well on G3 I think I will keep them. bigbob

    Not for Nikon, but I have used Fotodiox brand adapters. Seem a bit more expensive than the ones on ebay, but a bit better quality control from what I have heard. if you want very tight tolerances, I would go with metabones/novaflex. The reason I didn't is due to the adapter costing more than I had spent on any of the lenses I have (old MC/MD Minolta).

    The Voigtlander Nikon F adapter is the best and also the most expensive. My buddy had a metabones adapter and the tolerances weren't nearly as good.

    I'd agree with Jonathan. If you have lots of Nikon lenses, just get Voigtlander Nikon F (or the Novoflex) adapter. It's very very good. Voigtlander does not support G lenses though, not sure if the Novoflex one does.

    Buying cheap adapters is like a lottery. I went through 4 no-name Nikon F adapters, and the 4th one I got was actually spot on with the Voigtlander!
