    What would be a cheap and nice adapter for use with my Nikon 50mm f1.8 G lens on the A7II? This is a rather cheap lens but I like the quality of the image it produces.

    Thanks Amin. I saw a word DX in the title. Any problem when using on a full frame?

    Somebody offered to buy my Nikon lens. I guess I will just let it go and build up on my FE lenses. Thank you for your recommendation.

    @Dennis Koh@Dennis Koh - Sorry I missed the "DX". I can't think of any reason it would be problematic on full frame, but I can't say for sure.

    I think the Sony 55/1.8 and Nikon 50/1.8G actually have very similar character. The Sony is an even better lens as one would expect for the price. If you like the Nikon, you'll definitely like the Sony!

    I think my Nikkor adapters are all Fotasy too (but I might have a Fotodiox also - and maybe one other brand device). They all seem to work moderately well for me, although I sure wish there were auto types. I don't mind manually focusing, but it takes more time than a quick shot would need.
