I think i'd prefer to sand down the lens mount face, rather than use foil. I'd be worried about bits of foil eventually tearing off and being left in the body.

Shooting manual lenses on Pentax DSLRs « robertsdonovan.com I shoot manual lenses. This link is to a very good tutorial on using manual with Pentax.

+1 on it working with manual lenses. I just tried it with my Pentax-M 50 f/1.7 on my K-7. Wide open, at close distances, too, just to be difficult. It appears to do quite a nice job, thank you.

Now, mind that the camera only uses the center autofocus sensor spot when such a lens is mounted. So you have to center the subject exactly -- not always best for composition.

BTW, you can also quickly reverse the Catch-in Focus mode if you set the AF button up so that it Cancels AF. With that, you can do this:

Hold down the Shutter button -> no picture taken as long as it's out of focus
Now press the AF picture -> picture is taken instantly, even of out of focus. I.e. you can disabled CIF this way.

Eventually, nothing. I tried foil; it scrunched off at the first turn. I've sanded off the anodising from my manual lens mounts and had no problems since
