Alpa 11E Macroswitar 50mm/1,8 adaptor for Nikon D300

I would very much like to be able to use an Alpa Macro Switar 50mm 1,8 on a Nikon body.
Is that possible ?
mANY THANKS,

No - the Alpa body had a much shorter lens to film registration distance - 37.mm compared to 46.5mm. That means that the Nikkor lens would not be close enough to the sensor and any adapter would have to have a negative glass element in it, ruining the optical performance. You can only go the other way around and an adapter is available for Nikon F to an Alpa body - usually for a little under $300! Most people now put Switars on mirrorless bodies.

People have adapted these lenses to Nikon mount:

For easier reference, the first link above is "Kern Macro Switar 50mm 1..8 Alpa Mount Modified To Nikon Mount-1". The second link above is "Kern Macro-Switar 50mm f/1.9 AR (Nikon)".
