This kind of "friendliness" really amazes me. The camera has a digital processor heart. Wouldn't it be easy to throw in a programmable curve feature? But then, you could use brand N or L lenses on your Canon body, and starve the company of revenue..... The other choice is to use an adapter which has this compensation code built into it.... if the lens chip contains the code and the maker is smart enough to figure out how to program it. The real fix is the R10. Frank Filippone firstname.lastname@example.org When a Canon EF lens is mounted to an EOS camera, a variable exposure compensation factor (a program curve, not just a fixed compensation factor) for this phenomenon is fed through the system in order to provide correct metering for all apertures. However, when using a non-coupled manual diaphragm lens as you describe, no such communication takes place, so the responsibility for exposure compensation reverts to you.
