Hi! I have been searching for a motorized modern film camera body to use with my M42 and Zuiko OM lenses. Main requirements are high top shutter speed (1/4000 if possible) and spot metering ("centered" is Canon's term for it I think). The reason for all this is that none of my M42 or OM bodies have these capabilities and due to sunny weather down here, shooting wide open requires fast shutter speeds. The obvious choice for the M42s would be a Pentax body (focus confirmation, easily adapted mount, working metering) but the most obvious choices (MZ-3 and MZ-S) are either too expensive/rare or have serious dependability issues. I wouldn't like anything older than these models. Also the OMs cannot be used. So the next obvious choice was the EOS mount which can acommodate both. Based on specifications/cost I have narrowed my list to either a Canon EOS 300X / Rebel T2 or a Canon EOS 30 / Elan 7, the latter being more attractive due to construction, more advanced features, etc. Now, I've heard complaints about mount compatibility issues with some of the M42 lenses hitting the mirror of EOS bodies when focused to infinity, I have found a website with a detailed list of those lenses causing problems, thankfully the OMs are OK in this respect. My main concern is the metering issues I have heard about with some EOS bodies and the problems caused by the various adaptors. I was wondering if any of you have any experience using M42/OM manual lenses on these specific cameras and what issues have you encountered, other than the mount compatibilities. For example, do these chipped focus-confirmation adapters make any difference or cause any troubles compared with the simple ones? I hope I'm not being too specific, but most of the other EOS bodies I've looked into, are either too old or too expensive for me.
