Problem - Nikkor 50mm 1.2 + Canon ef to m43 speedbooster + GH4

Hi, I just received my metabones speedbooster for the GH4. I thought I would be able to mount my nikkor 50mm 1.2 ais using a fotodiox Nikon to canon passive adapter , but after trying I quickly realized that the aperture indexing post was rubbing against the inside of the speedbooster. I am thinking about grinding it down to make it fit. Does anyone have any experience with this kind of hack or has an opinion on what I should do? Should I maybe just sell the lens and not fiddle around with it?

If you want to mod a 50mm Nikon lens, there's far cheaper alternatives like any of the 50mm f/1.8 or even the 50mm f/1.4 AF-D! Filing down the protruding metal parts will certainly make you lose a lot in possible resale value.

Personally, I'd have a look around for a Canon 50mm f/1.2 and sell the 50mm f/1.2 Nikon. The Canon 50mm f/1.2 performs well, I believe even better than the Nikon (and I'm a Nikon shooter saying this :)).
