    Just a quick question here. When using the Nokton I know the contacts don't work. Is it like using a vintage lens? Do I have to shoot in full Manual mode or A, P, etc?
    Is the ISO able to be in auto or do I have to set that as well? I figured since this lens is a native lens somethings would work, thoughts?

    You adjust the aperture mechanically on the lens. You can then either set ISO and shutter speed manually, or let the camera select them for you. Being a native lens only means the lens fits the mount without an adaptor. There is no electronic communication between the camera and the lens, however in A or P mode, the camera will adjust ISO and SS on the depending on the amount of light hitting the sensor, just like it does with any other lens. You have to set the camera to 'shoot without lens', manually adjust IBIS to the focal length and obviously it won't autofocus either.

    Hope this helps.

    Sounds great! That is what I suspected and wanted to confirm before I purchased both lenses.
