I purchased a couple Nikon lenses in anticipation of getting the D800E, which I wanted to use on my Canon 5DII in the meantime. My Adapters just arrived. I put the Nikon 35-70D on my Canon with the photodiox adapter. The adapter has a piece on the side that slides which allows the aperature to be stopped down. I never saw an adapter like this before. When I use contax lenses on my Canon I just stop them down. With the lens attached, I can not change the shutter speed on my Canon either in Manual Mode or Aperature Priority. I don't know if it's the adapter or Nikon lenses don't allow this. My contax lenses work fine on my Canon. Can anyone shed some light on this problem?
Also, I can't get the adapter off the lens. I heard there was a little tab to press down and I do see something which may be a tab, hard to tell. I press it down and nothing.
