Re: Why does my GH2 (with an adapter and legacy lens) have aperture locked to '0.0'

I figured it out! 
I'll leave this up for any other newbs like me. It turns out the "Lock/open" function on the adapter WASN'T to lock/open and release the lens from falling off.. it's to lock and open in order to change the F stop (that your camera will detect)

So for others that might be similarly challenged, switch to A mode (M might also work I think), OPEN your adapter, then manually move aperture ring and voila.

Case closed.
