M8 and lens detection?

I just received my M8. I have a Voghtlander 40 Nokton on it.

 

I know that I can (supposedly) set it up as a 50mm so that the camera does the corrections, right? If I can I cant see where I can set the lens in the menu.

 

Is this only a feature with coded lenses?

 

2.014 firmware on the M8.

 

Thanks in advance, and appologies if this is the dumbest question ever. I couldnt find it in the manual...

There is no lens menu in the M8. If you want to treat your CV 40/14 as a 50mm lens, all you have to do is coding it like a 50mm Leica. You might try the Summilux 50/1.4 pre-asph's code (000101) but i have zero experience with the CV 40/1.4. I would rather treat it as a 35mm lens on the M8 most probably.

The M9 has a menu option to manually set the lens profile, the M8 doesn't.

The only way to code a lens for use on an M8 is with the 6 bit pattern on the lens mount.

Maybe google to see if the 40 nokton benefits much from coding and if so what code works best.
