Hi , bought a Konica 50mm lens, and tried in in M Mode on my G5.
I use use the scroll wheel to find the correct shutterspeed .

However , per accident i used this lens in A Mode , and it seems to work correct , camera selects ISO and shutterspreed , i only have to focus manually.
Much easier than in M mode !
Is this normal that i can use ADAPTED LENS in A Mode ??

Of course it is .. .

A mode means Aperture priority .
The lens Aperture is selected by the user and the camera chooses the other settings automatically .

It doesn't matter if the Aperture is selected manually or or electronically.

I use A mode all the time .. And even S mode sometimes .

Yes, I always use A mode for my Konica 40mm on my G3. The camera then chooses the appropriate shutter speed (and ISO).

Have fun!

Like was said above, when the camera does not choose the aperture it sets the other settings in A. It's what I use. A just pretty much rules.

I never use any other mode than 'A' when using Legacy Glass on my G5.

It's quite surprising that someone who uses legacy glass didn't realise that PA(S)M was readily available. Glad you stumbled upon it - serendipity rules! :thumbup:

....
Yes, I know you meant an ADAPTED lens.
I am very good at reading despite going to public school. I cant speak for others tho,
If you look back you will see that I wrote " It doesn't matter if the Aperture is selected manually or or electronically. " Referring to any lens by making no specific type of lenses designation there.
.. So now I wonder why you would think I was referring to only native lenses and not adapted ones.. Do you have any native lenses which have manually selectable aperture rings on them ?

This is why I think so many people might benefit from taking a basic photography class. Knowing about the Universal basic settings of cameras would cover this quandary.
