Hi Guys,

Sorry to re-bump my thread, but I received the adapter today and have another question.

Contrary to described above, the aperture ring on the lens doesn't seem to affect what's shown in the viewfinder - and doesn't affect the pictures either. It appears that the lens shoots wide open no matter what.

I guess this means either a) user error, or b) lens is busted.

So I can rule out a), is there any room for error when snapping this all together? It seems pretty straight forward, but I figured I should ask before resigning this lens to permanent 1.8 status.


Look through the lens. When you adjust the aperture ring, do the blades actually move? You should have a big circle at the widest aperture (1.8) and a tiny circle at the other extreme. If that is not happening, you have a problem with the lens.
