Is There Finally a Nikon AF Adapter for Sony E-Mount?

Nikon-Sony-E-AF-Adapter

The sharp eyes over at SonyAlphaRumors spotted a post on Xjirumo that “might” show that the first AF Nikon to Sony E-Mount adapter is finally on the way. I say “might” because upon running Google Translate on the page, the link to the adapter bring up this warning:

Bad-Link

WARNING: PLEASE DO NOT CLICK THIS LINK UNTIL SOMEONE VERIFIES IT’S NOT MALWARE!!!

But if this is true it’s very good news for Sony E-mount users. Please note that given the size of this adapter it look more like a Sony LA-EA3 adapter than a LA-EA4 – meaning that if I had to guess, this adapter likely does not have a focus motor built in. This means it might provide AF on Sony E-mount cameras including the new Sony a7RII with Nikon AF lenses that have an internal focus motor – but possibly not with older Nikon AF glass that are powered by a focus motor in the body. Even if that is the case, this would be very good news for Sony E-mount users.

Quoting directly from the Xjirumo website:

“After Sony Micro single appeared endless variety Ring, even including AF Ring, transferred Canon, Contax G adapter.

“However, because of the complexity of the Nikon reason, has not yet achieved, it will soon end. Adaptor producer exclusively revealed to us, the Nikon AF-connected ring already in the final stage, that soon we will be able to see. Once again, for the people in this easy achievement points praise!”
