    I recently puchased a T-ring for my D50 on ebay, should be here in a week or so.

    now i just realized today
    that an old film SLR i have here ,a Praktica MTL5, (pretty old cause it says made in the German democratic republic on it)..
    well it uses a 42mm screw mount for the lenses, same as the T-ring has.

    The camera has a 135mm f2.8 prime lens.

    Will this lens work on the D50 via the T-ring?

    will be fully manual and metering probably wont work right?
