I just recieved my Minolta Rokkor X 50mm/1.7 to use with my Nex-7. Am i correct in thinking i have to set the Release w/o Lens to Enable, then use in Shutter priority and adjust the Shutter speed till i get the image correctly exposed in viewfinder, or maybe even use the histogram for checking exposure.

Release w/o Lens, then use any mode you like! But despite the camera's inability to now control aperture, I prefer A mode with manual lenses - it lets the camera control shutter speed automatically while you select your desired aperture and concentrate on framing/composition rather than fiddling with shutter speeds.

NEX-5, A mode, Canon FD 35/2 at around f2.8
