If you have a SLR or DSLR camera and other maker/mount lenses, the Fotodiox Mount Adapters allow you to use your lenses on the film/digital camera body. Sharing lenses has some distinct advantages. Certain prime lens just can't be replaced, and you save cost of purchase lenses. Fotodiox offers a range of adapter from large format to smaller format digital adapters. Adapting larger format lens, i.e., large format - medium format, medium format - 35mm, excellent edge-to-edge sharpness; and the smaller 24x36 mm image field helps minimize the effects of lens distortion and aberration.

manual-only mode - nothing automaticNov 05, 2012
Pro: well-made adapter fits securely. Photos are great
Con: The camera gets no information from the lens. There are no electrical contacts. The lens is completely manual... no metering, nor auto focus, nor fstop.
Pro: because the aperture is stopped down, you can see the depth of field.
Pro: this is a great way of reusing a favorite old lens from another camera, just as Tamron envisioned years ago.
Usage: Set the camera on "M" Manual mode and take a test shot to meter the light.

Works great!Sep 16, 2013
I have a tamron Adaptall 2 300mm lens that was gifted to me by my father in law. It originally had an adaptor for an Olympus camera. I put off buying this adapter for so long but I am so glad I finally did! The old adapter slid right off and the new one clicked on and works perfectly! The lens in all manual with no autofocus so I could take some time to get used to. But overall I am very happy! And from when I ordered to when I received it was about 2 days...can't beat that!
Your old lens for another brand can now be used.Mar 27, 2014
Made using an old lens that was doing nothing, possible. This lens had had very little use when I switched from Pentax film to Nikon digital.

New life for old lensesFeb 26, 2014
By Todd K
In "the old days," I shot 35mm with a Canon AL-1. Loved the camera. But the camera was aging, and film became hard to come by, and digital photographs became so sharp, that it seemed pointless to cling to old technology. But what to do with my old lenses? Well, unfortunately, all of my Canon FD-mount lenses are still obsolete. But the Tamron lenses I bought along the way (a 70-210mm zoom and a 500mm catadioptric) had the adaptall mount (Tamron to Canon FD). So, for about $20, I can now attach those old warhorses to my new camera. How cool is that?
Of course, those lenses are manual focus, with no electronics to "talk" to my D3200 DSLR. You've got to shoot in full manual mode. For the catadioptric, which is fixed aperture, that means setting an ISO and shutter speed combination that will get the correct exposure. For the zoom, that means manually setting the aperture ring as well as setting an ISO and shutter speed (some folks find it easier in low light to focus with the aperture wide open, then stopping it down after you've composed your photograph).
If you've never shot manual before, this may seem daunting. It really isn't hard. And, besides, with digital photos, the feedback is nearly instantaneous, and mistakes can be deleted immediately. You probably don't want to try doing this for the first time at some once-in-a-lifetime event, but you can definitely learn as you go.
The item does what it is supposed to do. The Tamron adaptall (and adaptall 2) system obvious works the same as it always has. Twist the adapter until it locks into place. Remove the adapter by pushing on the little metal tabs and twisting the other way. It's just great that, no matter what adaptall adapter you had from your film days, you can switch it out for something to attach to your new Nikon. Still gotta shoot "old school" (full manual) but that's better than no school!
