Ah, good tip! I have seen some eBay listings where they (deliberately?) didn't show the aperture ring, so this gives me one more weapon

To do what, you'd still need Gaffer tape to attach it to that D800, no? :o)

Happy to hear.

Going to be interesting to see what you do with the now aging 5D2 under your scrutinizing eyes and tests. And with this focale which is quite a bit wider than what I normally see you use. Tell your friend to consider Magic Lantern before he leaves, just as a friendly advice :-)

Well i have the CV15 for my Nex, but the Distagon would nicely fit into the wide gap between the CV15 and the G28 on my Nex

Heh, I guess the 28/2.8 won't work on my D800, but the tip would also work for other lenses...

The 28/2.8 is supported, but it looks like some shaving of the barrel may be necessary (esp. for a FF body like the D800).
