Which adapter did you use for the Tokina? Love the pictures btw!

Hi Tbone

I use this adapter - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nikon-AI-AF-S-G-Lens-Sony-NEX-3-NEX-5-NEX-7-NEX-5N-NEX-C3-VG10-E-Adapter-Ring-/400310664349?pt=US_Lens_Adapters_Mounts_Tubes&hash=item5d345ffc9d - ~$12.  Big_is is quite a popular seller on mflenses.com because he's quite responsive, very cheap, reliable and his mounts always reach infinity (normally over a fair bit too!).

You can always pay 10x more for a perfect mount but with 4-5 legacy mounts I don't have $4-500 laying around when this works just as well!  Like most other cheap adapters you may need to tape up some of the internal holes near joints/hinges to prevent light leakages for long exposures.  I do this on all my adapters.

I have a fuller explanation on how I adapted my Tokina - Nikon-G mount lens with my own custom F-stop meter markings in the thread below:
