    More admirable advise :(

    What do ya figure Johnny Boy, a 5" angle grinder or maybe go after it with a
    hammer and chissel?

    That's quite an uplifting message you're quoting there. Do you ever find
    yourself thinking Mr. Nachtwey aught to spend less of his time hanging
    around with dead people? It's no reflection on you: we still see you as an
    intellectual type. LOL

  4. If you ever read the FM alternate lenses group you would know there
    are people do this and will do it to your camera.

    Read it and learn something.

    Or any number of discussions of it.

    So to get good WA performance you just have to:

    Buy another makers optics

    Get an adapter

    Trim the mirror so it will clear

    Use it in stop down metering mode manually

    Where can I buy one of these great cameras!

    Problem here is you don't know what effect that will have on the
    integrity of the coatings on the mirror. A first surface mirror could
    have its useful life reduced drastically by doing this.
