I thought the G adapters had the ability to stop the lens down as you can't do it on the lens. Am guessing you could put a non G lens on and manually stop down the aperture on the lens, leaving the adapter setting off?
I don't have G lenses so went with the normal adapter - works great apart from the lenses will now focus past infinity, you must remember to actually focus on infinity
Hmm, I had a typo in my question, an important one: I meant that I presume that this G adapter also works for older, non-G lenses. My guess is exactly as yours, I was just wondering if anyone had actually tried one.
Julian, EOS lenses have electronic stop-down, which is why the adapter needs either electronics or its own aperture. Nikon lenses have mechanical stop-down, even G lenses which have no aperture. There is a little lever on this adapter which pushes the lever on the lens, to stop it down. I was just wondering if anything gets in the way on older lenses.
Primarily, I want to try my 70-200/2.8 VRII on my E-PL3, but I also have some other lenses with aperture rings which I would like to try, such as my 100MP and Leica 180/2.
I bought a Dremel today, and will modify my TC1.4 to take my 180/2. This will make a kick-ass 250/2.8 for my E-PL3, with effective 500/2.8 focal length with the depth of field of f/5.6. This could be a lot of fun, especially when I get the E-PL5!
