Hi,

I juts picked up a EOS M from vistek. One thing I immediately tried was attaching a manual Zeiss Lens with the adapter.

It mounts without issue, accounts for the correct exposure reading but does not allow a picture to be taken. Also the record button in Video mode does not work with a manual lens.

Any ideas, is it disabled ?


(Ps, the cam's AF is fine, its just the lens's that are *%&# slow, attaching 24-70 and 70-200 to it, the M is competitively in line with full Canon DSLR's )

I know DSLR's require you to change the settings to something like "Take picture without lens" or somehting similar.  I am sure there is the same in the M's settings somewhere.

It's in the Custom Functions (C.Fn) menu...the 4th wrench. C.FN IV (#7)

Please post some pics!
