Using "dumb" adapters on the Nikon 1
I'd like to have the ability to magnify the liveview in assisting manual focus, but for me, the manual exposure and controls are an appealing part of using an adaptor and an older lens.
With the FT1 and old manual non-CPU lenses, you have metering, although only stop down metering. You can also magnify for focussing.
I like, that one immediately can see the overall look of the image when one changes the focus point and aperture / DoF.
These images where taken with the 35-70mm f/3.3-4.5 AIS lens.
