    No need to remove lens
    Yeah tot it's a pain too.
    Since I've got a AF 60mm Micro I tot I'll just try a cheaper manual ET for testing.
    Haha good things don't come cheap.

    I can't figure out how to use it on my 35mm f/1.8 DX lens. Read up somewhere to hold DOF button while dismounting, but when I twist the lens the aperture will also turn aperture blades back to default f/22.
    You use Nikon, what you read was about Canon lenses.

    Oh ok didn't notice the thread group when I do a search on ET.
    I see if I can find out how Nikon works.

    AFAIK, G lenses can only be controlled by the camera body. For all other lenses (with Aperture ring) you can adjust the Aperture freely by turning ring. The position behind f/22 (orange mark) is to tell the lens that the body will control aperture.
    Nikonians: feel free to correct me.
