Re: Advice For New A7R II Owner On Full Manual Operation

OK so on a different note if you use adapted FD lenses here's another way to look at the issue possibly. It may be I just have the wrong adaptor for the nikkors we'll see about that as I already ordered a separate one for non-G lenses.

On the subject of Canon FD lenses which adaptors work for you?

I have the basic Fotodiox that costs about $20. I was looking and I see there are some other variations that include an aperture ring in the design. I also contacted them to determine if that cheap one results in no aperture control etc in some situations. Otherwise why have the control ring in the more expensive unit? At this point i'm thinking of exchanging and trading up to the better model.

Just curious if anyone has experience with Fotodiox etc and has a product recommendation or any thoughts along those lines.

The one I have.

The pro model I'm referring to.

Among the differences one has an aperture ring.  One does not hence it just made me wonder.  You can bet if I discover that's why I'm having a problem and they didn't disclose up front there's a limitation I'll do a review relating the experience.  One would think not.  There is a small pole that appears to interact with the aperture.  Yet it is not working all the same.
