Manual focus?

Good job on the conversion, a first for that lens AFAIK. Pay no attention to people that criticize your workmanship, you managed to mount that flange with all 4 screws and that's what counts.

I haven't seen that lens in person but I assumed that rear lens element would be bigger than it actually is, it actually looks to be about the same size as the canon 50mm f/1.4.

I have converted a few canon lenses to SA mount and those with electronic manual focus lose the ability to manual focus with the SD9 and SD10, although auto-focus works well.
Does the electronic manual focus on that lens work with the SD14?
