Decided to switch cameras. Here is an image taken with a Nikon D40 at prime focus of Apex 127. I lost all auto controls by using the Apex. Focus was fairly easy, but exposure had to be experimented with. I'm still having trouble with the mirror lock with this "manual" lens. Right now, once locked, nothing functions other than a message saying that the mirror is locked, so would appreciate any suggestions.

Thanks,
Eric
