In another thread I'm talking about my desire to get a shift lens, preferably for my GH2. One ingredient therefore is a shift adapter and the Kipon shift adapter for Nikon F mount lenses on MFT cameras arrived this evening. Tried it out immediately and found a number of issues, serious and less serious. The MFT mount doesn't fit too snugly, causing wiggle with slight defocus The Nikon F mount is spring-loaded but the springs are too weak, again causing wiggle and defocus. My Nikkor 50/1.8 AI and 50/2 AI didn't fit because some parts extending below the bayonet interfered with the adapter. Only the Micro-Nikkor 55/3.5 fits. The shift action had some play along the axis of the setting screw. The setting screw interfered with the protruding "prism" hump as well as with the grip of the GH2. Only extreme shift downward and to the left min. 7mm (which is a lot). Didn't bother to check infinity focus as my fast lenses wouldn't fit. After handling it this short time I already could feel the shift loosening up. By measuring from pictures of the Voigtländer Heliar 15/4.5 in Nikon F mount it looks like the adapter can only shift to a maximum of about 3mm. The adapter cannot really be blamed for this, but it's a meagre amount of shift. I was planning to buy a Zeiss 18/3.5 in Nikon F mount to go with it, but I don't think it'll fit, it also has protruding parts at the rear that extend beyond the bayonet. Overall, I'm quite disappointed. I already contacted the supplier to have it returned. So my MFT shift dream has been shattered :sad010:. Also, this Kipon doesn't leave a much better impression with me than the average cheapo adapter, it's a far cry from the quality of my Novoflex. The adapter The adapter at maximum shift. The shiny part on the rim inside is due to damage caused by trying to mount the Nikkor 50/1.8. Seen from the MFT mount side. Visible here is the fabric between the moving parts. Shift setting screw interfering with the GH2's hump... ...and interfering with the grip.
