Just like with digital, it depends, sometimes you have to flip a body switch, some lenses don't allow manual override without changing modes and some allow manual override while it's in autofocus mode. Generally though the focus modules for the digitals are the same mechanically as those used in the more recent film bodies.On my dslr, to change from autofocus to manual there is a switch on the lens. Is this the same for film slrs?
If you were to mount your lens on a film SLR I guess the switch would still be right there on the lens in the same place.On my dslr, to change from autofocus to manual there is a switch on the lens. Is this the same for film slrs?
Are you sure? I thought the 70-200 acts like an AI-S on a the FM10.If you tried, on the other hand to put a 70-200 VR (say you're using a Nikon) on an FM 10 (a manual SLR), you will find that the lens won't fit.
