Pentax Q to Nikon lens adapter

Anyone on here have any experience adapting Nikon glass for use on the Q? My Q (02 kit) is arriving today and I'm already thinking of all the possibilities. I have a lot of Nikon lenses as that is my primary system.

I found this online. I'm wondering how the aperture would be controlled on Nikon G lenses (no aperture ring). Just wondering what others have experienced.

I just ordered one to review together with the Pentax one- will let you know how it works!

You can get them cheaper on eBay. With that adapter you can't control aperture on a g lens. There is another adapter that has an unmarked aperture ring to let you control aperture on g lenses.

Here's the one I ordered, says you can (looks different from the original one though):

Yeah. Looks like eBay is the place to shop for the adapters. I'm thinking one with a tripod mount would be worth the extra few bucks too. Some of the Nikon lenses are pretty heavy and I don't imagine the Q lens mount is designed to handle the stress. With a 5.5 crop factor I'm guessing most Q shots with Nikon glass will require a tripod!
