Frequently Asked Questions

Can I change my aperture when using this lens mount adapter?

Only if your lens has a manual aperture control ring.

If you use a lens with electronic aperture and no manual control ring, because this lens mount adapter is fully manual, your aperture would remain at its maximum aperture (lowest f-stop).

What is a lens mount adapter?

A lens adapter allows you to attach a different brand of lens to your camera body, letting you use an otherwise incompatible lens with your camera.

How do I find the right lens adapter for my lens and camera?

Find your lens mount and your camera mount.

The easiest way to find and confirm your lens mount is to know the mount of the camera it was used on originally. A quick internet search of the camera model followed by lens mount is a sure way to confirm what lens mount you need. For example if you have an old Nikon lens and you know it was used on a Nikon FM2, you can easily find that the lens has a Nikon F-mount. This is particularly useful for lenses that are made for different mounts i.e Sigma and Tamron bring out the same lens with different mounts including EF, F, E so knowing the camera the lens was used on is a good shortcut.

If you have an old second hand lens and you are unsure of the camera it was made for, take all the known details of the lens and search the web.

Why buy a lens mount adapter?

To utilise quality old lenses with your new camera, or match a different make of lens to your camera.

There are countless creative experiments to be explored by mixing different brands of lenses with your camera body. Lens adapters can also help your existing collection of lenses go further with any new cameras you collect. So you can invest in a new camera and make the most of your favourite lenses.

How do you use a lens mount adapter?

Find a detailed how to for each filter at the base of its product page.

In summary, attach your lens to the adapter, and then your adapter to your camera body. Put all settings on your lens and camera into manual mode, and select ‘shoot without lens’ in your camera settings.

When should I use a lens mount adapter?

Whenever you want to use a different make of lens with your camera body.

Because you need to use your camera in full manual mode, you may need to familiarise yourself with this before shooting. You’ll soon work out which lenses you enjoy using with your camera. Analogue lenses can provide professional quality glass at a fraction of the cost of modern lenses so lens adapters can help you shoot with better lenses for less.

So nice I bought it twice

My first adapter met an unhappy end after a long fall onto hard pavement. So I bought another. It's well-made and doesn't flake cheap paint into the body of the camera. Very pleased.

Excellent piece of kit!

I bought the M42/Canon RF mount adapter to use my classic Tair 11a 135mm f2.8 manual lens on my new Canon R6 body. The adapter is a superbly machined piece of engineering that is a pleasure to use and is beautifully presented both in terms of design and packaging. I am so impressed that I have just ordered an Urth Canon FD/RF adapter for another classic Vivitar lens that I own. I couldn’t recommend Urth adapters more highly!!
