Has anyone adapted a Nikon 180mm f/2.8 lens to Sony E?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone adapted a Nikon 180mm f/2.8 lens of any vintage to Sony E? I would be most interested in adapting the current Nikon model, since I don’t own one yet.

This is a great lens that weighs less and is smaller tha than a 70-200 f/4 zoom. Nobody by Nikon offers it.

Yes, I want a 2.8 prime. I am only aware of the Nikon. Once upon a time Olympus offered a 180 f/2.8 for their film SLR system (OM-3, OM-4). Are there any others I should know about. Autofocus is not that important to me, but I do need full functionality with the camera's meter.

There are a several other 180mm lenses, from the older manual-focus Soligor f3.5, Auto Miranda f3.5, Super Multi-Coated Takumar f2.8,  Zoomatar f1.3(!!!), Super Yashinon-R f3.5, Sonnar f2.8, etc., to the highly rated Tamron f3.5 -- that came in manual-focus and auto-focus versions (Not cheap).

As to FULL functionality with your camera meter, that will depend on the lens and what camera you have -- and how you define "full".

I'm not familiar with the Nikon, but I think Canon has/had one as well.
