Our lenses do not have the ROM.  What features will we miss and is there
anything we should consider when choosing programming mode or exposure

Hi Katarina & Jorg,

I understand the only thing you really miss out on are things pertaining to
the flash.

I use the R8 and the 70-180 all the time and I don't miss out on anything
due to it not being a ROM lens.

Basically just use the camera as though you were using it not knowing
anything about the ROM connection.  It will be fine.
