Some of that type of lens can be switched between auto & manual, if the lens hasn't got that, then it's not usable..
sure it is jack.. if it's an early non-auto M42 thenĀ*it closes the aperture as you change it.. in other words, you can only view at the ap the lens is set too. just use the camera in Av mode and the time is set for you..
