BOKEH & BUTTER: Classic Manual Nikon Lenses for Video – Lens Tests!

Vintage manual Nikon lenses pair well with modern mirrorless cameras with a simple adapter. Affordable and solidly built, these Nikkor-branded lenses cover full-frame sensors and serve as excellent taking lenses for anamorphic attachments. Long, smooth focus throws make focus pulling easy and intuitive. Originally produced for film cameras, each lens gives unique character to the images it produces.

All footage shot on a Sony A7Sii. Lens test footage shot through a Vizelex ND Throttle adapter to balance exposure at the desired frame rate with lens aperture wide open.

Lenses tested:
Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 Pancake
Nikkor 50mm f/1.2
Nikkor 85mm f/2
Nikkor 200mm f/4
