screwmount & in-focus indicator

I don't know why, perhaps I've read that somewhere, but I thought that you could not get focus confirmation with screwmount lenses, only with bayonet lenses. Well today I discovered that you can (MZ-5n and a Volna-9). Perhaps I was the only one who thought so.
I have yet to have the film developped to see how accurately focused the shots were though.

The indicator works just fine, but on certain digital bodies you have to enable it in the custom menu.

I have a vague memory that this worked with the XZ-10 as well, will have to check.

Sounds liek bollocks Focus indicator works fine in the Mz7 and the Mz50 with Takumars

The main problem with screw lenses is the lack of aperture indication, not focus
