The Rainbowimaging Nikon G-type lens to Micro 4/3rds mount adapter works very well with both G *and* non-G Nikkors when adapting them for use on Panasonic and Olympus MFT bodies. The price is very good considering this adapter's high build-quality and its design. The damping in the aperture adjustment ring is just right (being smooth and easy to turn, but with enough turning resistance to counter the force of the lens aperture actuator-lever spring). The ring can be turned fully to permit aperture selection using the aperture rings on non-G Nikkors that have them. For setting an approximate f-stop on G lenses in aperture-priority auto mode, one can fully open the G-type lens aperture with the ring, note the shutter speed (and the maximum rated aperture of the lens at the zoom setting being used), and (without shifting the image framing appreciably) watch the shutter speed change as the ring is turned to judge how many stops away from maximum the lens is being set to. A similar process can also be used in manual mode. I am very pleased with this adapter.

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!;-)

1st of all this one works on the Olympus Pen E-PM2...I tried a fotodiox adapter and it was too big for the camera...this fits the Nikon lens well and it fits the MFT body as well...no light bleed noticed...if you have some nice Nikon lenses around and prefer to shoot in manual mode on the MFT cameras this one works nicely...the lenses go on and off easily and mount and dismount the camera body easily as well...I have tried my Nikon 85 1.8 d and my 55-200 AF-S and they work splendidly on the E-PM2...even though it says G-Type lenses...it can handle most any Nikon F mount lenses...just remember you have to manual focus and there is a little silver ring at the base of the adapter to set aperture...there are no markings with numbers so there is a little guesswork but with enough use you will get the hang of it . definitely worth getting if you already own Nikon lenses

I love this thing. I was a bit concerned by some comments that their lenses were stuck, but figured for this price, it was worth a try. I am using a Panasonic DMC-GX7 camera with this and the camera very kindly reminded me to turn on my custom shooting setting called "shoot without lens" if I wanted to take pictures with this setup.

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!

Bought this without high expectations due to the low price. I wanted an adapter that let me changing aperture on the Nikon G lenses. It works very well, you can't read the aperture but its lever works fine. I found also very smooth to put it on and off, same for the lens. Overall very happy, I would buy it again.

It works, which is the big plus. I would have given it 5 stars if it were not for two issues. The switch to disconnect the adapter from your Nikon lens isn't that smooth, in fact I had to jiggle it a bit the first time I used it and for a moment was considering how I was going to disconnect the adapter from my Nikon lens without taking out some screw drivers or a hacksaw... Fortunately that wasn't needed and it simply took jiggling a bit before it freed up. The more I used it the easier it becomes to us so that isn't a huge issue, just don't freak out if the first time you put it on a lens it acts like it doesn't want to give up the lens later.

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.
