The adapters intended for G-type Nikkor lenses (the ones without aperture rings) also work fine, generally, with lenses that do have aperture rings and the Open/Lock switch serves as a quick stop-down mechanism. In one case, the lever on the cheap Chinese version of this adapter snags on part of the lens mount when the lens is wide open; I don't use it with that lens, though I could also rectify the problem by a little judicious filing down of the lens mount or adapter lever.
