Nikon AF Lenses With Leica SL – New NOVOFLEX Adapter
During photokina next week NOVOFLEX will be launching a second electronic lens adapter for the Leica SL camera, which allows for a number of electronic camera functions to be transferred to the lens. The new SL/NIK lens adapter allows the connection of current Nikon E-type NIKKOR (with electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism) lenses at the Leica SL.
Currently, 13 Nikon E-type NIKKOR lenses and teleconverters are compatible with the new adapter, both fixed focal length lenses, zoom lenses and two tilt/shift lenses. The electronic Leica SL adapter, as its counterpart for Canon – naturally “Made in Germany” – supports the following functions:
- Aperture control
- AF/MF mode
- Depth of field indicator (MF)
- EXIF data transfer for aperture and focal length setting
The new adapter tripod collar ASTAT-CN can be used directly on the adapter when using particularly long and heavy lenses.
