Hey guys, I was wondering. Today I was at the camera store and tried the DL out with my 50mm f2.0 (SMC-M..the old manual stuff) and the Av thing on the lcd panel beside the shutter button kept blinking and the camera refused to take a photo. The batteries where at half and the sd card was present.

Any ideas?

I just bought a SMC-M 50/17 a couple weekends ago for my DL. You need to set up under CUSTOM SETTING > Fl with S lens used to Available, and >Using aperture ring to Permitted.

I normally just use Manual setting, and just prior to taking the shot - press AE-L which will help to check the exposure with your selected aperture and it also automatically sets your shutter speed.

make sure you switch off the autofocus switch on the side.

Have fun! I've been having tons since getting that manual lens!
