    Looks nice, Mike. Thanks for showing.
    May I ask a few questions?
    1. Which adapter do you use to mount the lens. Does it allow the camera to direct aperture in the lens?
    2. The use of the zoom puzzles me. Do you have to enter the focal length in the camera?
    3. I assume thecAF/AExbutton cannot be used for focusing. How difficult/easy is manual focusing (e.g. Many turns of the command dial?)

    Reason for asking: I was thinking about using an old 70-210 nikon lens (which showed fantastic results with the nikon D800) on my x-pro.
