How well do Nikon fx lenses work with Sony camera bodies? I'm contemplating buying an Sony Alpha a7R II , but I dont know how well the 3rd party adapter mounts work. Is autofocus or image quality affected ? Also, is VR compatible with Sony's sensor image stabilization? I would appreciate feedback from Sony owners that have transferred over from Nikon.

I don't think there are any good autofocus adapters for Nikon.

Fotodiox came out with one that apparently caused cameras to lock up, so it's currently discontinued.

There are a bunch of "dumb" adapters that don't autofocus (or support VR as far as I know).

Sorry! Life is better for those with Canon lenses.

Thanks for the info. I guess I'll hold up on buying a Sony Dslr and stick to my Nikon.
