Re: Shots taken from liveview darker (even in M mode)

I use only AiS lenses and others that are not electronically coupled. Neither mode leaves a usable viewfinder for unless I stop the lens back to f/2 or 2,8. Any small movements of course can offset the focus, which, of course, is critical for work.

Does anyone else use AiS non-electronic lenses and have a usable workaround that doesn't involve messing with the lens? Do I need to cpu my lenses in order for movie mode to work?
