View Full Version : Lens chips

28th June 2010, 09:36 PM
Sorry to ask a naive question but I have to ask somewhere as I couldn't find the answer by trawling...

What is this 'chip' that I've read mentioned in lenses and why would some people chose to remove or disable them?

Many thanks (and apologies if this has been covered elsewhere).

I think you are talking about the focus chip in the Olympus OM to 4/3rds adaptor so when using some old manual lens the camera beeps when in focus or not as the case may be ,so disabling it if it did not work on their camera :)
