Re: Adapters with aperture

I have a "Fotga" brand from ebay 20.00.

It works, tho the little bolt that extends thru the adapter to push the aperture lever was too long and I had to shorten it a bit. Its pretty crude. The difference between f2.8 and 8 is a little turn, there are no markings so you don't know any setting for sure except wide open and completely shut.

It would be worth spend more for more control, but I'm not sure if there is such a thing.

If you look at the back of your Nikon lens, there is a small lever that controls the aperture, these adapters just have a ring with a bolt sticking thru that pushes that lever. You can try with your finger and see how it would work.
