anyone used Novoflex adapter - Nikon lens to EOS camera ? - Photography

Just wondering about the pros and cons of these things. They're made in Germany, and let you put (some sorts of) Nikon lenses on EOS cameras. I haven't found much info by googling. They sell them here [url]http://www.kbcamera.com/novoflex.htm[/url] and here [url]http://www.bhphotovideo.com/product/197094/NOLANCAF/REG/418[/url] Has anyone used one ? Thanks Stan...

    Novoflex accessories are top quality products. The adapters restrict
    the lens to stopped down metering only, otherwise they are excellent.

    They are expensive unless you buy from Germany, where lower prices can
    be found. You may have some luck on eBay Germany; the eBay seller
    "foto-walser" often advertises new Novoflex gear at good prices. He
    is a reliable seller and has astronomically high feedback.

    I just spoke to a knowledgeable salesperson
    at KB Camera, one of the two places I found
    that sell this adapter.

    Some data points:

    [0]- It works with all Nikon lenses

    [1] - There's no electrical connecting going on

    [2] - Due to [1], you lose the lens' automatic functions
    (autofocus and aperture setting)

    [3] - Will focus to infinity

    Nice guy. Seems like KB would be
    good folks to deal with.
