Re: Reversed G lens aperture control

One or two images on how to do this for AF-S lens would be helpful.

You can control the aperture of a reversed G lens with a small DIY wedge. Move the lever to open the lens and stick the wedge in the slot so the lever can't return. Spring tension will keep the wedge in place. Intermediate stops are possible by varying the size of the wedge.

It's crude but it should work. Just make the wedge a shape so it can't drop through the slot and end up inside your lens. John
