Re: Full Manual Lenses, does anyone have experience with Rokinon/Samyang? Exposure Issue

When a lens is mounted on the camera it will be at maximum aperture (f/2.8). It stops down to the selected aperture when the photo is taken (or the DOF preview is pressed). With a manual lens you can only shoot in 'A' (aperture priority), or 'M' modes, and you must select the aperture using the aperture ring on the lens, the camera cannot select the aperture.

Now that the technical details are out of the way, What metering mode are you using? Matrix, Center Weighted, or Spot.

When using manual mode centering the meter does not mean you are going to get the correct exposure.
