    hi,

    i just got an m42 to EOS adapter, and am going to use my SMC 50mm 1.4 SMC
    lens with my Canon, but have a question.

    whereas, if you shoot the m42 with a spotmatic, you leave the lens on
    "auto", turn the meter on, meter, then sut the meter off, and you are
    looking thru the f 1.4 lens. but what about with this setup? am i going to
    have to put the lens on "manual" and leave it there? does it hurt the lens
    to be switching back and forth between he two while mounted?

    thanks

    Being an M42 I think it will be manual all the way and the lens will not
    mind.

    Leave it in manual as suggested, but focus wide open and then shut down for
    the shot.
