    Hi all,

    I am trying to use vintage lenses with my EOS M after upgrading to 2.0.2 firmware but the shutter button has no effect.

    I have looked through the menus for a place to turn on Manual Focus mode but if it is there I can't see it.

    It looks like unless the camera can autofocus it won't shoot and that is never going to happen with a 30 year old lens.

    Any advice appreciated.

    Just to elaborate, the focus mode option disappears from the menu when the EF-EOS M mount is attached.

    Go to custom functions (third item on the fourth wrench menu). Function 7 is release shutter with no lens. Enable this function. Since a legacy lens has no electrical contacts the camera thinks there is no lens.

    Thanks Steve.

    That is excellent thinking and it works like a charm. You are Legen....wait for it.....dary!
