I have a problem with Adobe DNG and converting NEF files fron Nikon Z5.

With Z lenses there is no problem, however photos taken with old Nikkor Q 135mm, which is manual lens for F mount, are not being converted.

I see arror every time: there was an unknown error.

 

I can convert those files online, and open them in View NX, so files themselves are OK.

Any thought?

I am sorry for late reply.

Unfortunately trying to upload file shows this message

The attachment's dsc_8241.nef content type (application/octet-stream) does not match its file extension and has been removed.

 

Adobe DNG Converter12.4.0.555

Windows 7 SP1

Nikkor Q 135mm f2.8 for F mount - no AI conversion - no EXIF data

Nikon Z5 with 1.1 soft

 

I have tried to add exif data to one file but it is not working either.

Every time I get error you can see below.

 

I would be more than happy to hear any advice!

Did you use Nikon Transfer to get the nefs from your camera to computer?

On macOS 10.14 Mojave your sample nef will not open in camera raw 12.4 or get processed by the adobe dng converter 12.4 showing the same error message you got.

 

However, your provided sample nef will open with camera raw 13.4 and gets processed with the adobe dng converter 13.4, so i can only conclude that there is a bug in the adobe dng converter 12.4.
