A more usable solution would be to convert the lens to full manual aperture, either with the Leitax installed on it or leaving the Nikon mount in place with the Leitax on the TC. Any competent camera/lens repair person should be able to do this for you or you can attempt it yourself, using the Leitax instructions as a guide. Your camera options will remain the same, but you would be able to stop the lens down for performance and exposure purposes. I would go that route.

Hi Steve, thanks for questioning my Leitax install! I had another look at it and indeed in my hurry/excitement I'd left an unnecessary part in the original TC so the adaptor didn't fit properly. Now the lens is no longer stuck wide open!
