    Hey

    Since I have never use the Nikon system, is it possible to use early non AI lenses through the adapter with out converted to AI on my Oly EP1? Some adapter on the bay said : F, AI,non AI,AIS ..... so if it can be used without converted will it metering right and set aperture on the lens?

    Thanks for any input.

    Yes no problems works just as with an AI lens - MF of course - manual - your set one or the other and the cam with meter correctly - and you can use the ev adjustment if thought necessary and see the effect in "live view"

    - the only annoying thing I found is that when using MF lenses you get no EXIF info, (for future reference) - at least with a Nikon DSLR you can manually input lens info
