Re: Older - maybe vintage - lenses on new DSLRs (plus: mold issues)

Hey friend!

Thanks for the responses, they were really useful indeed! I've heard about replacing the viewfinder screen... Seems inexpensive, maybe I get one, but sometimes, when playing around with the film, is feels like it's in the way, because most of the time I can get reasonably accurated focus without it... the focus indicator maybe will be enought...
Some cool samples you have there!

Just two minor questions... the focus indicator will tell things are in focus using what info? Contrast? How do the camera knows where I am focusing?

And the aperture... like in the older cameras, it stands wide open while framing and focusing and when you shoot, it is released or your aperture is fixed? Just worryed because I wouldn't have the DoF preview switch (which was quite useful actually)
