Chipped Adapter vs. FT-1 w/non AF-S lenses
Jul 4, 2014

My apologies if this has already been discussed but going thru the topics here I couldn't find the info I am looking for.

Will the FT-1 work with a lens that doesn't have an aperture ring and isn't 100% compatible w/o being limited to shooting wide open?  I know that with either option (FT-1 or chipped) I can get AE and AF confirm but there are some nice older 3rd party lenses like the Tamron 200-400 or 200-500 that would be potentially sweet on my V1 but don't have aperture rings.  Can never have too much reach and the Tokina 400/5.6 I use on it now has issues with CA so I'd like to improve things w/o breaking the bank.
