Older MF lenses with full 11 focus points working

Hi, is there a way to get full use of the many AF points of the k**d series with older MF lens?

Normally using an old lens it will get back to spot metering and single af point, but i know this little hack that using an aluminum foil over the contacts makes avaible every metering mode...but af remains the same.

since i would prefer more many af points and i hate matrix metering, can you help me with this?

that would be redundant

if you are focusing manualy, you are using your eye to judge whats in focus, so if you want whatever is on the left and closer to you in focus you well... just... you know, focus!

if you want sensory confirmation that badly you can always point focus then recompose and compensate by back focusing a fraction
