Re: Not the adapter

That is weird. My adapters (2 different designs) both totally clear the black part.

The lens mounts to the adapter fine. It's mounting the combo on the body that's the issue. The black tab starts at the side and is rotated down. As it rotates, it strikes something in the mount throat of a 5dII. It's possible a slightly thicker adapter might just provide clearance, but then you have a metal tab fractions away from the electrical contacts.

That is just weird. The contacts from my focus confirmation chip also clear the black part of the back of Nikkor lenses. So, no worries about the electrical contacts there.

But if you have this lens mounted, I'd like to see it.

As you can see from my list above, I do not have this 20mm f4 Ai-S. As such, I can't show you it mounted, on any of my cameras.... This is the 1st time I heard someone having problems mounting because of the Ai-S tab. .
