New Nikon F-mount adapter for Coolpix cameras to be announced soon


Nikon will announce a new adapter that will allow you to attach F-mount DSLR lenses to any Coolpix camera. The idea is similar to this adapter that lets you attach Nikkor lenses to your iPhone. The new Nikon adapter will have a F-mount on one side for attaching the lens and a very strong Neodymium magnet on the other side for attaching the Coolpix camera (click on images for larger view):


Those two pictures show the Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8 lens attached to the Coolpix S30 camera.The exact name/model of the adapter is covered on one of the images - only the "NIK" portion is visible:

The price is expected to be $99. Due to the small sensor size of the Coolpix cameras, the crop factor will be somewhere in the 5x range (depending on the actual sensor size). This will turn the 70-200mm lens into a 350-1000mm monster!
