Of course I am sure - I have been using this adapter for a couple of years
now and I think I am qualified to answer.  There are no contacts on the
adapter: the EOS body will behave as if there are no lens attached to it
hence no electronic focus confirmation.  I also have a Contax to EOS adapter
and the situation is the same.

OTOH, both Nikon and Pentax AF bodies retain the electronic focus
confirmation when an non-AF lens is used.

When the R APO 180/2.0 is mounted to the Canon D60 you have a 288/2.0!
