catch in focus question I have no problem using any of my pentax manual lenses with the "catch in focus" settings however when I switch to a non-pentax lens like my Zenit Hellios 44M-6 with the adaptor it does not work...??
Am I doing something wrong or does catch in focus only work with Pentax Manual lenses without an adaptor?

Non conducting mount = CiF doesn't work. You need to create an electrical connection. same on my K-r see here.
