I also wonder if anybody provide the recommendations how to use manual lenses with "dump" adapter on V1.

While in manual mode will I get real life picture in viewfinder (changing aperture will make it brighter/darker)?

How tiresome is manual focusing (I undersntand there is no magnifier?).

Thank you.


Hi Vlad, yes, changing the aperture will change the brightness of the EVF. For me, focussing is just fine without magnification, but I grew up with manual focus cameras
