Thank you everyone. I ordered a novoflex adapter from B & H and it should arrive on Monday. I will be very curious to see how it goes. It is a bit pricy but it looks like you should be able to stop down but I can't see how as it just looks like a hollow ring.

I also have an adaper on route which they say will allow me to use my old radioactive 50mm Super Takumar 1.8. It is about 50 years old but apart from some yellowing because of the radioactive decay from the thorium glass it appears flawlwss (no wonder, it has been in its case for the last 30 years) If it works out I will try blasting the lens with strong sunlight as they show on Youtube which is supposed to clear up the yellowing.
