Re: yes - A mode isn't strange at all

A-mode with legacy works the same way as the metering is concerned, but you lose the ability to control exposure via on-camera dial. So you need to learn to control camera one way with native glass (by turning the dial on camera) and another way with legacy glass (by turning the aperture ring).

If you put camera in S mode when shooting legacy, you end up controlling exposure in the same consistent way (by rotating the dial). Moreover, you can control both the  aperture and the shutter speed. That's why I prefer S mode for legacy glass.
