Nikon to nex adaptor not fitting EA50

Hi guys. Been following the forum for a while, but this is my first post.

I just got my Nikon to Nex adaptor from dealextreme. Itīs a cheap Fotga adaptor with sort of an aperture controll on the adaptor, but it doesnīt show any increaments so I just have to look at the image to see how bright or dark i want it. It works ok with mye NEX-5R. But it will not fit my EA50. It seems that the EA50 has a thicker mount made of metall, and the e-mount on the NEX-5R is a bit thinner and made of more plastic parts. So just a heads up to folks wanting to add Nikkor lenses (or any adaptor for that matter) on the EA50, try the adaptor before you buy to see that it actually fits!

Re: Nikon to nex adaptor not fitting EA50

I also bought a relatively cheap adapter to fit a Nikkor 50mm to my EA50. There is slight movement between lens and adapter, but I believe no light leaks. However, I now cannot remove the adapter from the lens...in my case that's OK, since the lens is for the EA50 only.

But maybe biting the bullet for a higher-end adapter would have been the better choice.

I bought four nk-nex adaptors for the 20 and 50. (got one for test :) and all work without issue both on taking the adaptors off and ease of putting them on the 20 and 50. Very cheap - $17.00
