  1. Does the XT-30 support the Lens Modulation Optimizer (LMO)? Thanks!
  2. This is where I am having the problem - evaluating the live feed off the sensor to get what I need to set things manually. I understand that the lens isn't going to convey any information. What specifically should I be seeing in the viewfinder to indicate the camera is evaluating the exposure? Everything looks absolutely static for me with the lens adaptor in place. Thanks!
  3. Hey I didn't even notice those cool graphics you included in a previous message since I was reading on my phone for that. Thanks for going to all that trouble - it makes me feel even better about holding on to the 23mm! Thanks again, Al
  4. I can live with that. Thanks for the advice! Al
  5. I'll grant you my own 'testing' was anything but scientific. It basically consisted of taking a picture of a textured brick wall about 3-4 feet away, outdoors in the sun. I took several shots at 2.0 and several more at 4.0. Shutter speed was obviously not a factor. The 2.0 shots were consistently softer than 4.0 (which were very sharp.) The dropoff is more than I would have anticipated (enlarging the image was not required to see the difference,) but then again, I've never conducted a test like this. I was only motivated to try it given all the stuff I've read online. Maybe I should try
  6. <sorry, I see now this adaptor is for Sony - wasn’t able to figure out how to delete my post> Is something like this what you are looking for? https://www.adorama.com/kabenexma645.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwpPHoBRC3ARIsALfx-_J9AUFr19E-ozxexZkYqMnZZAvy1-1Kf8P4kixHtZOrzOXb8vbi9y4aAlUqEALw_wcB Good luck, Al
  7. Looks great. I am aspiring to do the same thing but am currently stuck while being educated on how to work with lens adapters 🙂 This is the group of FD lenses I have to work with - I’m sure some are better suited than others. 20mm 2.8 50mm 1.4 35-70mm zoom 100mm 4.0 macro 135mm 2.5 100-200 zoom 300mm 5.6 Thanks, Al
  8. Thanks, I tend to agree. Maybe I should be thinking of the softness more as a “characteristic” of the lens than a defect :-).
  9. And all the other reviewers must be using it wrong as well. But you make a good point about sharpness - I agree that's just one of many criteria. I'm thinking I'll keep the 23mm.
  10. Thanks Quincy. I do have "preview exposure and white balance" set, yet I always just get "F0" in the viewfinder when I put an FD lens on. With shutter speed in Auto, the F stop never changes (always F0), nor does the displayed shutter speed when I change the f stop on the lens. I wonder if I have some other menu setting that is keeping this from working? Thanks, Al
  11. Ah, thank you very much. I still think it's a cool feature, but it was driving me nuts having it on full time 🙂
