 Yes.  The Novoflex bellows has two levers communicating between the lens
mount and the camera.  One stops the lens down to the set aperature when the
shutter fires, the other communicates the f-stop to the camera body so
manual and aperature preferred metering will work w/o stopping down on
lenses that have the right cams (not the 100 bellows macro).  I have tried
it with my 90mm and it works just fine.
