I am finding limited finder readout functionality with this combination. R8 body / auto winder / Leica 35-70 F3.5 3 Cam zoom (non ROM). What auto modes should work and register properly on the viewfinder readout? The lens is NOT a ROM version..but is a 3 Cam...so I expect some info in the viewfinder will not show accurately (or at all). Lens F stop info does not show in the finder (shows only 19 or 22) ...nor does shutter speed in the Aperture Priority mode....In the T mode (Shutter Priority) only slower speeds show in the finder. The only mode that seems to respond properly is the Manual mode. Although only F19 and F22 show...no matter where the F stop is set on the lens...sView attachment 4056 hutter speeds do work and show properly throughout the range. I am perplexed so say the least...so at this point my only working metering mode seems to be Manual Mode. Is this common with this body / lens (non ROM) combination ? I am also wondering if there might be some problem with the metering system...Any info or help would be appreciated...Love the look and feel of the camera...but disappointed to think I am relegated to manual mode using a handheld meter. Anyone on this site using a non ROM lens with their R8 or R9 that can help "shed some light" on this situation ? Am I to shoot only with manual mode with this combo ?
