Novoflex Nikon F Lens to Leica SL/T Camera Body Lens Adapter Cannot Reliably Stop Down Zeiss Otus 55/1.4
Issue: the Novoflex Nikon F Lens to Leica SL/T Camera Body Lens Adapter cannot reliably stop down the lens past f/8, and even f/8 might be iffy once in a while.
The coupling for the adapter is purely mechanical and since it is hard to believe that my Otus is at fault (zero issues for years on Nikon cameras), I blame the Novoflex adapter. But whether it is this particular sample of the Novoflex adapter or a general issue, I don’t know.

If the Novoflex adapter doesn't work I'm inclined to throw out all ideas of purchasing a Panasonic S1R.
DIGLLOYD: the Nikon Z7 is a better platform with far superior lens adapter; I would go with the Z7 if the goal is Zeiss DSLR lenses.
