    I have a Nikkor 70-200 lens and was wondering what kind of results I might get from the adapter above? It's a bit expensive so I thought I'd ask here first. Thanks!

    Keep in mind that the aperture ring control is not an actual aperture control. Basically its a guess where you are between fully open and fully closed. If specific aperture control is what you are after for DOF then none of these style of adapters have that. If you are only after close enough type apertures then they work okay.

    Hmmm good point. I need a focal length longer than what my 110 f2 or a 120mm gives me but Fuji doesn't make one. It's for landscape photography mainly of trees that I cannot get very close to. Ideally I need about a 110 (in 35mm full frame equivelance) focal length. What would you do?

    Ok found a good solution...

    I'll use Fuji's H Mount Adapter G and a
    Hasselblad HC 150mm f/3.2 N Lens

    I bought the Fotodiox Nikon>GFX adapter last week for $100 online and it's tight-fitting, well-built, plus has a smooth aperture ring which works fine with my 105/2.5 ais.

    I did a few quick tests to better get to know my 105/2.5 here. There's some minor vignetting at f/2.5, less at f/4-5.6 and barely any at f/8; all easily fixed in p/p.

    From f/11-16 no vignetting (didn't bother w/f22). The four paper-shots are f/2.5 to f/8. When I tried the in-camera 7:6 crop ratio, vignetting disappeared at the wider apertures.

    Also a test shot out my window @ f/11 (uncropped full image 4:3 format).
