nex to nikon ais adapter?

Has anyone tried one of these adapters that claim to support ais (and g) lenses?

Yes, and it works well with all of my lenses, including the G lenses -- while it doesn't indicate what aperture is used, the LCD image does brighten/darken appropriately when I turn the ring on the adapter. I don't have the exact one on your link. The one I have is on the link below, although I don't recall paying that much.

Thanks Keith

The tripod adapter would definitely come in handy with the bigger lenses. Will have to think about whether to try the lower priced one or just go with the jinfinace one. I've gotten other stuff from him, and it's always worked fine.

20USD shipped direct from rainbowimaging (no aperture adjust) or 36 for G w/tripod mount.

They ship very fast.

Also good kipon tilt adapter for nikon for 99USD, from [email protected]

330501669347 looks like a G (AFS compatible) one w/o tripod mount is under $30 shipped.

Anyone compare these with other vendors offerings? Can the G (AFS) ones be used with older non AI/AIS lens as well?

Edit: OK, I think I see how it works, lock stops down, and open, opens up G/AFS lenses. But is there enough throw in there to go in-between open and stopped down (using say shutter speed in A mode to let you know your approx aperture)? Or is it simply fully open, or fully stopped down?

I have some lenses that go to f32 and would almost never use at that setting.

Is there anything like a tilt nikon G/AFS (don't care with or without tripod mount)?

Or are all tilt Nikon nex adapters for AI AIS only?

I have one on the way, I think the Gs will mount, but do not think the apertures can be adjusted.

If different I will post.

The 250usd lensbaby tilt transformer will allow g aperture adjustment, but the 99usd kipon does not.

interesting. I have a lensbaby, but it's a Nikon mount, so for me, it will be the nex to F adapter, then the lensbaby.
