I have slowly been trying out adapted lenses, and really enjoy some of what I have messed with. I have a Helios 44-2, and a few Nikon lenses.
However, I still like shooting manual focus film, and swapped out my Canon A-1 for a Nikon FE so I could share lenses between my film camera and 5D. Problem is that my cheap Nikon lens adapter (which works fine otherwise) isn't very easy to remove. If I was just going to put this adapter on a lens and leave it, it would be fine, but the little tab that gets the locking pin into the Nikon isn't super solid, and is very hard to take out without a small screwdriver.
I was looking at the adapters on ebay, and saw a few that appeared to have a lever that was pressed in to release the adapter.
One with AF-confirm, one without, both seem to have the lever.
Anybody have experience with the lever adapters? Are they pretty easy to take on and off? What about with these brands? Any reccomendations? Is the higher quality photodiox easier to take on and off even though it appears to be the same tab design as my cheap adapter?
