I recently acquired an M6 (and as an aside, WOW
). I have a small group of LTM lenses that I had been using on Bessa R/L cameras w/o issue. I got a converter to use them on the new M6, and my 50mm works fine, but the 15mm will not meter. Is this a known thing? Could there be something wrong with my camera? The meter works with my 35mm M lens, and it appears to be accurate.
What happens is this:
I put the lens on
I take the lens cap off
I push down to activate the meter
I get: |> <| (the two arrows from the meter)
It only remains up for a fraction of a second.
Further presses of the shutter release do nothing.
If I push it to bulb, then back to anything, the tiny blink happens again.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks in advance
(Let me know if there's anything I can add to this description to make it more clear)
