Can't work since the lens aperture ring turns the other way from Nikon so no Av only stop down metering.

I use a Leitax adapter on my 35mm Elmarit-R with great success, here on a Nikon D3:

If using a Nikon, is there any adapter that lets you use the lenses fully open to focus with auto diaphragm stop down when the shutter is activated? Also, would Av mode work or only manual stop down metering? Thanks for the input.
