Using Nikon lens on GH3

Hey, I have a Nikon D90, and a few lens, I wanted to know what the best adapter would be to use those lens on the Panasonic GH3?

Would the Metabones Nikon to mico 4/3 be the best option?

Thanks for the advice!

Hi Alan, I use a $20 Nikon G to micro 4/3 adapter to adapt all of my Nikon F and G lenses to my GH3.

That said, the 2X crop on the GH3's micro 4/3 sensor will make your lenses appear a little longer than the 1.5x crop on your D90.

You don't need a $429 Metabones Speed Booster unless you want to reduce the GH3's crop to 1.42x.

Hope this is helpful and good luck!

Hey Bill!

Thanks for the tip! I'll get that adapter!

For the cost of renting that Metabones adapter, I'll just get that adapter. I appreciate your advice!

Thanks
