EX-3 + f-stop adjustable Nikon Lens -

For some reason, however, we loose iris control with that setup (and that setup alone- other lenses work). The lens is flat stuck at 2.8.
It's a completely bizarre situation, as the iris IS being closed down (we checked it). But the amount of light entering the camera is not changing. At all.
It's almost as if its breaking the laws of physics. Does anyone have any ideas of why this might be happening?

It seems like everybody is just as baffled as we are. The only thing I can think is that it's a problem with the lens (or some kind of issue with the conversion)... but as stated, the Iris is indeed opening and closing.
It just doesn't make sense!

Not having used a Nikon ED I can only speculate. Is it an auto iris lens? The MTF won't pass power to the iris motor. Do the iris blades move at all when looking down the lens while mounted?
We are pretty new to the concept of mounting stills lenses on a video camera (still seems like an odd thing to do, to be honest). In any case, is it possible that the lens requires power in order for the Iris controls to work? That doesn't seem to make much sense to me, but I suppose it could explain the fact that the iris blades do not move while mounted.

For quick (not professional) solution to be able to use this lens with your adapter, you should open the iris manually
