I am adapting the Rokkor 58mm to Canon mount.
There are lots of guides with pictures around the net and quite detailed. However on my own conversion i found my lens behaves different.
There is an aperture lever that is pushed from the outside with some sort of mechanical mount in a minolta camera. This lever unlocks wide open default setting on my lens. That means i can change the aperture from f16 to f2 freely without touching this lever. The iris responds.
If i set the aperture ring to f1.2...it then stucks and stays there, unless i push the Aperture lever mentioned.
This is a picture of what i am talking about, it is not mine sorry for the copyright, took it from a guide website and inserted some text:
So my doubt is...must i dismount the lens to remove this mechanism?
If i dont, after EOS conversion i will not have this lever to close the iris. Even if i did i would have to unmount lens, push, mount lens.
No guide comments on this, despite all show this lever.
Any insight? Thanks
