Nikon 50mm f/1.8 - Canon EF adapter. Aperture ring frozen
May 1, 2011

I just bought a Nikon 50mm f1.8 for a real bargain price. The same model is listed here:

http://www.keh.com/camera/Nikon-Manual-Focus-Fixed-Focal-Length-Lenses/1/sku-NK0600499999905?r=FE#

I have one of the popular inexpensive Kawa adapters to use with it. It mounts fine to the lens and fine to the camera. However, when mounted to the camera the aperture ring is frozen, and cannot be changed. Is this the fault of the adapter, or the combination of that lens with that adapter?

Would a different adapter work fine with it?

I'm out of my depths with this and so any thoughts/advice welcome...
