Anyone here try something similar?

Setting the aperture is pure guesswork. There are only two known positions... wide open and fully stopped down. Anything in between is a guess.

Thanks for replying!

I found 2 adapters on ebay (sold under many different names. but essentially these 2 are what I found):

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-G-to-Micro-4-3-M43-Mount-Adapter-G1-GF2-EP1-EPL2-/390408318986?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae626300a#ht_3162wt_994

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lens-Mount-Adapter-Nikon-G-Lens-To-Micro-4-3-Micro-Four-thirds-F-Panasonic-E-P1-/280865985278?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4164ead2fe#ht_3338wt_1193

The first one has number from 0 to 6. Does that mean it has 7 different positions for the aperture (fully open till fully closed with 5 intermediate values) ?

The second one has nothing I can understand regarding intermediate values.

I imagine some of this guesswork is solvable by taking a few test shots for a given aperture setting and finding the optimal ISO and shutter speed combination.

Maybe after a while one gets the hang of it - you know that one notch difference equates to 2 stops etc.

Which of the two would you recommend? Have you used any of them?
