I'm trying to mount the Novoflex EOS/NIK-NT adapter to my Nikkor-Q 200mm f/4 lens. I can press the adapter against the lens, but it doesn't rotate. I tried with the blue adapter lever in various positions and also with the lens aperture ring at f/4 and at f/32, but there's no difference.

Any ideas? :) Thanks!

Be sure you rotate it the opposite direction on the Nikon lens side. I've never had any issues mounting adapters to my Nikon lenses. They are sometimes stiff, I just buy low cost ones and leave them attached to the lenses.

Thanks for the tip :) However, I already knew that. When I try to rotate the adapter, there's a "hard stop" in both directions and I don't want to force it. I have had other stiff adapters and this feels different.

This adaptor is probably for G lenses, not for lenses with manual aperture control. You need an adaptor suitable for manual Nikon F lenses.
Not sure since I have next to no knowledge on Nikon. I have used this adapter in the past on a Zeiss Otus 55mm f/1.4 for Nikon. I bought that Zeiss lens used together with the adapter and have exchanged that lens for one with a Canon mount and kept the adapter :) Now I have acquired the Nikkor-Q 200mm f/4 with the intention of using it as a tube lens.

The lens is the non-AI version of Nikkor 200mm f/4, but I think it has been converted because the guy whom I bought it from has successfully used the lens on a D5200.
