Added later: I discovered another way to use this adapter. With lenses that have aperture rings on them, the silver ring on the adapter can be used to fully open the diaphragm on the lens to its widest stop to achieve the most accurate focus possible (especially when using the viewfinder image-magnification function), then it can be turned to stop the lens down to the stop previously chosen using the lens aperture ring for the desired exposure setting. Nifty!;-)
I tried out both my Nikon AF Nikkor 50 mm f1.8 (with its own aperture ring) as well as my Nikon AF-s Nikkor 18-135 mm f3.5-5.6 (without aperture ring). Fantastic shots! This adapter went on and off both lenses easily. The aperture ring on the adapter has no markings on it as it presumably will work a bit differently for each lens you use with it. I simply watched through the lens to see which direction to turn the ring to modify the aperture as I wanted and how sensitive the ring was with each lens.
The GX7 camera has some very nifty manual focus assist options built in which were very handy for this application. I used the focus peaking assist, which highlights the area in focus with a light blue fringe; this allowed me to see the area of full focus which coincidentally gave me a pretty good idea of my depth of field. Add to this my ability to easily zoom in my view using the GX-7 3" touch screen monitor and I was very happy with my manual focusing experience using my Nikon lenses. The adapter's aperture ring worked perfectly and was surprisingly easy and smooth. I noted that there was not much distance between the largest and smallest aperture settings, so I would caution folks to check through the lens prior to mounting on the camera to see how the aperture changes with the ring. It was very sensitive with my lenses and there was no need at all to twist hard.
All in all I am delighted with this purchase. The build is solid, it works well and it's an absolute steal at $24.99!
The other issue is that the silver ring used to manually operate the aperture of your Nikon lens doesn't click in place. Also the ring is not the difficult to turn so if it very possible for you to set it all up the way you want it and then accidentally jar the silver ring when taking the photos such that your aperture opens up on you a bit. Would be nice if it clicked in place or at the least was harder to turn so it wouldn't be prone to movement.

the release catch broke off i had to take it to the nearest camera repair shop it cost only $10 to get it off my lens but the adapter was toast and it was 45 minutes away.Published on March 21, 2014 by John
It works as advertised, but is pretty loose. If you are using this for video, every time you focus your lens its going to move a lot. Read morePublished on December 10, 2013 by Jason Hirata

Does what it says on the can. Aperture "ring" a bit loose, and the lens release button doesn't go the way you think it does (try pushing toward the camera body). Read morePublished on June 30, 2013 by C. Lay

This item worked ok with no problems with a Nikkor 50mm 1.8 AF/S lens. I was using it on a Panasonic GH3. If you buy it it will work and thats what you need it to do.Published on April 23, 2013 by V. K. Morris
