Adapters with aperture

I'd love to have the Tokina 11-16 Nikon version working on my Nex, but as you know aperture has no ring.

Putting an aperture ring and removing electronics would cost Tokina less than the original lens, and instead they came out at NAB with a CINE version costing... 2k$, losing hundreds of potential buyers.

Absurd!

Anyway, I've seen on ebay some chinese adapters for nikon mount with a manual aperture ring.. has anyone tried them? Do they work?

Example
