    Hi guys, I recently borrowed an E series 70-210 F4 lens from my buddy. But, there's just one thing. How the heck do I meter with this thing??. I can take a shot in manual, and in any other mode, theres an error for -lens not attached , but thats understandable. Is there any way of metering without guesswork??
