Hey thanks Harley, thats a really good tip I never thought of. I figured the manual/auto switch was going to be the vestigial appendix like carryover from the previous camera system but this makes it really useful.
A tip for anyone using the converted FL 55mm f/1.2 lens...
You probably already know the switch for automatic / manual focusing has to be set to "M" for the aperture ring setting to engage. With narrow apertures the viewfinder can darken significantly. I have had some success using the A / M switch to open up the lens for composing and focusing, then quickly switching back to the aperture I want for metering and taking the shot.
