Re: It's a pity......

....that you have to have a focus confirmation chip in a manual lens, just to fool the body into thinking it has a lens attached.

There is no reason why the camera shouldn't be told to do a focus confirmation without the lens communicating.

Canon, please add this feature to future bodies! "AF confirm with manual only lens".

Not likely I guess, because it implies 3rd party lenses, but why not?
