So easy to remove the three screws and take a knife to the rear of the mount  :o :o :o

the C-mount lenses arrived :o :o :o
the cheap chinese adapter were milled in such a way that the lens is facing the wrong way when screwed-in ::) the top-facing part is underneath
one lens focuses to infinity while the other one won't

the D-mount lens is pointless for use with the Nikon 1.

from the cine-nikkor 25mm f/1.8 :o :o :o

really anooying to use without any focus aid. i can live with exposing manually but its hard without any focus aids since the LCD doesnt have enough resolution ::)

the cine-nikkor 10mm f/1.8 is a swell lens but 4 out of the 6 blades were broken...i dont want to fabricate blades anymore, its too tedious. does anybody here know who fabricates iris blades? I doubt it will be cost effective, maybe i should just do it when i have the time.

Did you receive the Gfoto chip?

 I see they also have a "Nikon F lenses to Nikon 1 adapter with AF/EXP chip". Does anyone have experience with that?

i think it's made of plastic, after hitting the mount with a screwdriver it made a dull sound :o :o :o

however, aluminum also creates a similar sound ::)



I definitely agree it’s plastic, one of the clause on being at Mount broke off and I epoxied it back together again. Surprisingly has worked flawlessly ever cents but it is definitely plastic.

Then it will go by train and then by ship to Japan? :-)
I have an item on the way from Russia and it has landed in my country after about 4 weeks.
Then it has to pass customs and then the final delivery. So patience is needed.....but it it is a nice item.....I hope....
