First Commlite Nikon F to Sony E AF Adapter Review (By Thomas)

The Austria photographer Thomas published his detailed Commlite Nikon F autofocus adapter review. He tested the adapter on Sony a7II with Tamron 24-70 F2.8, Tamron 15-30 F2.8, Tamron 150-600 F5-6.3 and Nikkor 24-70 F2.8 G. It seems that he is not very satisfied with the results:

As much I appreciate Commlites efforts to do a Nikon F to Sony E adapter they really have much work to do. They may be on the right path, but the current version of the AF adapter is not really useable in my opinion (maybe it’s a faulty copy?). The build quality is good, but has its flaws (Tamron 24-70 only mountable with detached tripod plate). Only two out of four lenses worked, and one of them had some bigger issues. Nonetheless I had a bit of fun using the two 24-70 lenses on the A7 Mark II. I do not know which firmware version was installed on mine, but I assume it is the latest as I got the adapter very late after several delays. At the moment I stay with Nikon and when there will be more native E-mount lenses that doesn’t cost a fortune (G Master) I think about changing to the Sony A7 mirrorless system (@Tamron and @Sigma – hurry up with FE lenses!).

Below are the test videos:
