What is well?
It works well enough on my D300S, but if you mean on my Fujifilm cameras, I
have an Nikon-Fuji-X mount adapter which allows me to use my Nikon glass with
the X-T2. However, that makes everything all manual. No AF, no AE.
Fortunately, one of the benefits of many of the mirrorless systems is the
ease of using manual focus, and exposure adjustments.
I also have six Fujinon lenses which have proven to be some of the best glass
I have ever used. I still have another two or three on my wish list. So there
has been little need to go to my Nikkor stuff. The only Nikon mount lens I
have regularly used on the Fujifilm cameras, has been my Tokina 11-16mm
