Yes sir I can explain. This was mentioned in the OP of first D800E vs 5D3 post and referenced by link in the OP of this post.

7.) The EXIF of the 5D mk III image will show f2. The adapter used won’t report actual aperture. You can rest assured this image was made at f8.

Rick, I thought you used two separate Zeiss lenses, one ZE mount for Canon and one ZF mount for Nikon without realizing you used the Zeiss ZF mount thru an adapter on 5DIII (makes lots more sense financially).  However is possible that ZF mount is not optimized for Canon?  I am not sure thru adapter if it is the same as by using native ZE mount except no AF/AE without any loss in optical quality?
