I have just got my Metabones EOS to NEX adapter. This works well withmy ZE lenses but does not work at all with any of my converted Contax N lenses. No aperture is displayed in the camera screen and I cannot adjust the aperture in the normal way.

Do my lenses need a firmware update or is there some other reason for this behavior?

Would you mind letting me know the serial number of your lens by PM? And also the firmware version of the EOS to NEX adapter? I will look into it. Thanks!

I think this is entirely my fault. With the converted lenses getting the lens to seat properly is difficult because it's very stiff and I had not turned the lens sufficiently for the contacts to make touch. If I turn the lens in the mount to its furthest extent I now get control of the aperture. I'm sorry I should have tried harded!!!

I think with use then it will loosen up.
