Hey guys,

I'm currently a m4/3 user but have been looking at swapping over the a V1 due to the size of the camera and the sensor size. Something has worried me though. Reading various other posts I get the impression that no sort of metering will work with an adapted lens, and that pictures have to be taken through trial and error.

Obviously this will not work at all well for video and I just wanted to confirm this. I would be shooting in manual video mode anyway but would at least like the little exposure bar down the right to stay there with an adapted lens. I think if it doesn't then I'll be sticking with m4/3.

You need to use the FT1 adapter if you want metering to work.
