Adapter ring troubles/ Nikon F to EOS body

Has anybody had trouble detaching the BOWER adapter ring from their Nikon F/ AI lens? I've been struggling for an hour trying to get this adapter ring off of my 50mm f/1.4

It's impossible to press down the release lever with enough pressure and loosen the ring simultaneously.

Feedback on the Novoflex adapter rings- for fitting Nikon F/AI lenses onto Canon EOS cameras? Priced at $270 compared to the $54 Bower brand ring that I am struggling to detach from my lens, the additional cost would be worth it if it makes changing lenses easier.

The adapter ring I have you don't push down on the release you pull it sideways away from the lens.

Hey Norman,

What kind of lenses are you using? You might have a completely different mount than the ones I'm referring to. Mine turns/locks onto the back of the lens- Nikon AI- then you place the lens onto the EOS body.

Hi Ian,

I'm using old Nikkor AI lenses I have four different ones on my 7D, I put the adapter on the lens first which locks into place then I put it on the body.

Mine is the cheap ebay adapter from China, here is a link to a similar one: http://tinyurl.com/yklpzau

It has a small lever which you pull away from the lens to unlock the adapter and then twist off.

If you are looking for a replacement, I got one of these on recommendation and it goes on and off no bother.

If in doubt scream and shout.

Thanks for the info, James. Does yours work on both AI and AI'd lenses? Maybe I just bought a lens that received poor craftsmanship in its AI conversion.

Take care-
