A few of you have emailed wondering why I am using Nikkor D lenses again.
Manual aperture rings are the main reason. Since I try to keep things simple and like to use one set of lenses for photos and video, aperture rings are a must. Works great with the Sony FS100 and FS700 or the Canon C300 and C100 (via a simple Ni/C adapter). The Nikkor G to NEX adapter is awesome because it lets you select the aperture by simply turning the aperture dial on the adapter and this turns every Nikkor lens into a de-clicked cinema lens. The only problem is the very short throw (about one inch) from wide open to fully stopped down, impossible to be accurate on in between aperture values. With the aperture ring I can preset the smallest aperture I want to work with, for instance, f4, now the ring on the G adapter will operate the aperture between wide open and the selected aperture on the lens.
