The guy had a spare 'dump' adapter which works great. Since it's a Macro lens (55mm f/2. , I probably won't really care about the AF confirm unless I'm actually shooting someone. Oh, and it came with an m42 bellows as well Too bad it'll have to wait for a couple of weekends before I'll have time to start really playing with Macro.That sounds good. Just because 99 of 100 of the cheap chips work fine, does not mean its worth risking a $500 repair bill to save $20.
Its like the guys who got third party Li-on batteries and they did not catch fire. Therefore, everyone is safe from buying them. Tell that to the guys who died on the 747 brought down by Li-on batteries on fire.
Err...I meant dumb, not dump. But yea, either I'll stick with the dumb one, or find a quality one.
