FT-1 with manual focus lenses?
5 months ago

What is the real world useability of the V2/V3 with FT-1 and manual focus Nikon lenses?  I have several AI and AI-s lenses I would want to use.  Obviously autofocus won't work, but how easy is it to manually focus on the V2 or V3 viewfinder?   What metering and exposure modes are supported?  I shoot mostly in aperture-preferred, so want to confirm that will work with manual focus lenses in a manner similar to a Nikon DSLR.
