Metering is quite normal - just change to aperture priority. As for focus confirmation I am unaware of any adapter that could help or provide this - ditto autometering. I have heard whisper of a Russian-made adapter plate with electrical contacts that fits onto existing 4/3rds C/Y adapters. I've seen non Contax versions for sale on ebay.Hi everyone,
I am interested in the E420 and wondered if anyone has experience of this. I would hope to attach my C/Y lenses but I am not too keen on the idea of everything being totally manual. Do you know if there is focus confirmation and any metering with C/Y lenses and an adapter?
I have bought a Nikon D300 which is great in every way but I cannot fit my C/Y lenses to it and they are pining.
Long time to chat.
Hi John,Hi Biggles,
Thanks very much for your reply - much appreciated. Sorry about the delay in replying but we have been away.
I think that I would miss the autofocus that I have now got used to on the D300 or at least focus confirmation. I think that I am going to have to do the previously unthinkable and switch completely to Nikon.
I am having trouble coming to terms with that but having got the Nikon I have pretty well decided now that I don't want to introduce a new system as well. I would keep some film gear but otherwise switch wholely to Nikon digital for SLR work.
