Thanks for trying that.

I'm in the opposite camp, only having manual focus lenses on hand. But I have an AF lens arriving tomorrow, so I'll give it a try and will report back.

The manual says:

A Manual Focus
Single-point AF is automatically selected when manual focus is used.

But I do not see a mention if it works in conjunction with the exposure system.

Interestingly, with a manual focus lens mounted (in this case ZF 1.4/50) the option to switch to a different AF area is disabled. Unless I am doing something wrong.

Yes...with a manual lens or whit a AF lens set to manual...AF-Area mode "single"
only.

According to the hogan guide...spot metering with a manual NON-CPU lens occurs at the center point only and a manual-CPU lens at the selected AF point.

For matrix metering of non-CPU lens...you have to set the lens data per page 105 and 159 in manual.
