Subject: [Leica] LeiCanon focus confirmation??

I only have a 20D, not a 1-series Canon, but I am pretty sure that they 
all behave the same--meaning that with a Leica lens+adapter, the camera 
does not even recognise that a lens is mounted on it. So no focus 
confirmation or anything of that sort; but you can shoot in aperture 
priority mode, since the camera's meter continues to function and will 
simply measure whatever light comes through the lens.
