FOTODIOX PROBLEM
Now that we know what the flaw is, what to do? Well, it turns out are two generic Nikon/EOS adapter designs out there. Most importers (Fotodiox included) order these from China and put their own logo on it. I have an adapter *identical* to the Fotodiox that I got from eBay(tons of those out there) except it doesn’t have the Fotodiox name. You can tell this design from the presence of a little black spring loaded lever that you press to unattach the lens from the adapter. This is the flawed design and the one to avoid.

The other (costs about the same) has a little square tab with a hole in the middle which you push/pull to mount/ unmount the lens from the adapter. I own one of these as well. There is almost zero play with the lens mounted on this. It fits tightly and is a pleasure to focus with. This is the one to get. These are also plentifully available on eBay.
REMOVAL

So I learned that I wasnt the only person getting their fingers sliced up while trying to remove the Fotodiox Nikon adaptor off an canon camera. I finally figured it out and shot a quick video on how to remove it.
***I take no responislbity for anyone breaking their adaptor/lens/camera or injuring themselves in the process of removing the adaptor. In other words be careful.***
Taking off the adaptor is actually very simple:
Step 1: take the lens off the camera
Step 2: locate the metal flap, stick a flat head screwdriver under the flap and while lifting the flap up move the flap slightly to the left. The goal here is too hang the flap on the rim so that it stays up
Step 3: lastly twist the adaptor off. Use caution when twisting the adaptor off. It is very sharp and will slice your fingers if your not careful. I recommend using gloves.
I’m a visual person so if the directions dont help here’s a video I shot of me taking the adaptor off:
