Don't know but I just bought a kalimar 135mm f2.8 lens on eBay and it has a threaded mount that is not T mount and is not M42 mount? I am hoping there is an adapter somewhere out there as it seems like a very well made Japanese lens! If you figure it out let me know?
With the proper T-mount adapter this lens will fit just about any camera, film or digital, with an interchangeable lens. However you will not get autofocus, and most likely will lose the camera's autoexposure capabilities as well.
I have the same model, purchased from a pawn shop with a foot missing. My husband replaced it with a pencil eraser. He put shrink tubing material around the eraser until it was the right size to screw on to the thread. I hope this helps.
You need to do what is called an exposure lock. Aim at the subject, even if it's out of focus and half press your shutter. Then press the * button on the camera (top right) and it will exposure lock. You can then re-focus, but it will hold the exposure that was metered previously, so you'll get focus on a different object to what the camera has focused on. You can exposure lock anywhere, it doesn't even have to be your subject, it could be a nearby window to underexpose, or a nearby dark area to underexpose. Once you've locked the exposure you can focus somewhere else.
The DiMAGE A1 employs three metering modes; ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) flash metering, Preflash-TTL metering and Manual.
The ADI flash metering mode combines distance information from the autofocusing system with information from a pre-flash exposure.
On the other hand, in Preflash -TTL metering mode, the exposure is calculated with a pre-flash only.
Flash emission control is manually selectable in three levels from 1/1, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16.
Pre-flash TTL metering must be used when a diffuser is attached to an external flash or a filter to the lens.
Attachment of those accessories may cause error in distance information necessary for ADI (Advanced Distance Integration) metering due to reduced entering light.
While manual output control is active, pre-flash will not burst.
