Everything I have been telling you the adapter (Novoflex or not) has no
contacts and the EOS body will not offer focus confirmation.  The camera
also defaults to stopped-down metering mode in auto unless you switch it to
manual exposure mode.

Just think - if the adapter had contacts, what would they be good for?
