You pretty much know all there is to know, as disappointing as it may be. The whole process is totally manual with no aids whatsoever. I started out with "dumb" adapters for M42 and Nikon F mounts and finally broke down and got the FT-1 so I could get metering and focus confirmation with my cheap but great Cosina macro lens.

Does this mean that metering is possible, even if limited, with Nikon AI-S manual focus lenses when using the FT-1 adaptor?

Thanks Dave. I'm going to have to get a FT-1, I'll ask all the family for money this Christmas.
