    I just got the Fotodiox Lens Mount Adapter- Nikon G Type to Micro 4/3.

    I tried attaching it with OM-D and Tamrom 90mm Macro lens (Nikon mount).I could attach it perfectly and was able to take some shots.But I am confused on how I can change the aperture. I read from the reviews for this adapter that I can change it manually and it also talks about an aperture ring (which is not there on Tamron lens and the Nikon G lens does not have either, so I assumed it is on adapter)

    Any idea on where this aperture ring is. I don't find any ring on the adapter (other than the one to lock).I know I have to guess the aperture, but how to change the aperture is what confuses me..

    Any help is appreciated..thanks.

    Ok, i figured out.
    The ring on the adapter which says "Lock<-->Open" seems to act as aperture control ring.
    I can see the lens aperture opening and closing while turn that.

    Thanks.
