Settings when using fotodiox adapter and 75-150mm lens

I have recently bought a fotodiox adapter for my Q as well as an old SMC PENTAX-M ZOOM 1:4 75-150mm.
When I switch on the camera, it ask me to enter the focal lenght, should I enter 150, 75, in between?

Thanks

I enter the zoom FL I plan to shoot or a little less. If I am using my 80-200 zoom I enter 150 unless I plan to shoot only @200. Using adapted lenses on the Q is not a fast or quick process you will have plenty to time to change the lens focal length input between shots to the zoom range you are shooting. The fastest way is to power down and up and change lens FL.

The input for FL only effects shake reduction and if you are following motion you should turn SR off so at that point the FL input does not effect the image so set it to the mid point and the camera will ignore it
