Thank you for letting me know that all is not lost with the Nikkor lenses. Ive got a Nikkor 200mm that might do well for wildlife.

Note if you have "G" lenses that don't have an aperture dial, and want to get a manual adapter (not the autofocus adapter I linked), make sure you get an adapter that has an aperture dial on it (usually they call them "Nikon G" adapters). Otherwise there is no way to adjust the aperture.

An article that explains it.

Here's an example from Metabones (you can see there is a dial on the adapter itself). Note there are many options that are much less expensive, this is just an example.
