My new Adapter to mount Nikon G Glass (well - in this case my Otus 55mm)...

Be careful using G adapters with the Otus. You want to make sure the lens stops down to the stops indicated on the lens barrel.

You raise a really good point Jim. I just looked at the Novoflex Adapter and it does behave differently than some of the other Adapters I use. I learned now that - after mounting the lens correct - moving the Adapter (blue) ring to the closed Aperture setting allows the lens barrel itself to control the Aperture setting (as it should be).

Easy to see looking into the lens.

I have to redo some tests.

Thanks!
