With my M42 lenses I have found that the camera is able to set the exposure correctly in Aperture priority mode "A" on the function knob. To make this happen right, I have to set the camera to an aperture of F1.0 (or so) even though the camera has no idea what is mounted on the front of it. With this aperture setting the camera makes a pretty good guess about the shutter speed needed for a fairly good exposure.

I concur.
