By tricknessSorry for the newb question, I'm considering an SL to go with my 240 and have read lots online but I'm trying to clarify something about using my M lenses with the adapter:
1) Does the SL "know" what aperture an M lens is set at, and reflect that in the data displayed in the EVF? If not, do you set your aperture on the M lens and then manually change the settings to match that on the SL body or....?
2) Does the EXIF metadata in the file of a shot taken on the SL with an M lens via the adapter show the correct lens & F stop information?
I tried figuring this out at B&H when I checked out the SL but the salesman was clueless - the camera was in A mode and although the 50 1.4 M Lux I had mounted was wide open, the SL was flickering between 1.4 and 1.7 depending on where I aimed it. I assumed that in manual mode it would reflect what was actually set on the lens itself but would really appreciate an answer on how it works from someone actually using an SL with M lenses.
I'm new in this forum and new to leica cameras.
I just bought a Leica T and two Leica lenses (the 35mm summilux 1.4 ASPH FLE & the 75mm APO Summicron-M 2 ASPH) with an M adapter.
The Leica T does not show what aperture I chose on the lens when shooting.
Neither does Lightroom.
The readout on the screen says: F0.0 regardless of which aperture I choose.
The lenses are 6 bit coded.
Is it supposed to be like this?
I guess it's ok while shooting, but it would be nice if the EXIF contained what aperture I have used.
