No coercian (sp?), but I'm going the way of the Dawg and others. Funny thing is if I put the adapter on first then load the camera lens it lines up almost 'straight' with the ap guide almost facing straight up. When I put it on the lens first it barely goes on and the guide is at about 10 oclock.

Took some shots today before and after I figured out how to get the SR to kick in. Didn't play with focus trapping yet (but I will) I'll shrink some images down and post 'em.

be careful if you dont have the spring on the adaptor
the lens can unscrew itself and end up on the floor
or worse still if you are holdiing the lens the camera can end up on the floor
it nearly happened to me
i used a dremel in the end to make a slot for the pin on the camera to sit in

Use of a neckstrap and a firm grip on the lens with the left hand will prevent either from falling. LOL
