Luben, I stand corrected. Thank you for pointing out my error.

I did indeed purchase mine early on. It was around 300 pounds if I recall. Wish I would have waited a few months now it is a third of the price.

I am curious though with Mike Tapa's adapter if there would be problems accessing the blue iris control ring. Has anyone used one of the Tapa adapters with the iris ring?

Mike has the best after market EX3 adapter ;)

Hello Andrew,

I do have it and its the best... one adapter all Nikon lenses... I have hold in my hand and used with EX3 only 2 adapters and you got the idea which one was the second ;-).... Mike's adapter is so easy to use and very easy to move with a finger on it. Also, he has a very small stop screw attached to the blue for a fixed iris or you could use it (the screw) for a opening and closing the iris. Very, very smooth. As you could see it the adapter has only the iris ring in blue. Everything else is as it supposed to be - black, just as your telephoto lens insight is.

Many people probably have tried to copy Mike's adapters, but, the reality is that out-there is only one Mike Tapa adapter.

Get it if you can Andrew. You would love it.

Cheers

Hi Luben, good to hear from you.
And I'm so glad that you are happy with the products that I design.

You are right, many people have been busy selling very similar "alternative" products while I have been busy designing more world firsts.
Such as our latest offering for Sony Alpha / Minolta lenses
The worlds first Sony Alpha/Minolta to EX3 adaptor


Regards

Maybe this should be a separate thread, but, is the Alpha/Minolta to EX3 adaptor available yet? Where could we get it stateside? Vortex?

Hi Ed.
The first batch are being made now and should be available in a week or two.
As soon as they are ready, I will ship a few over to my dealers AbelCine and ZGC.
