I have a single Adaptall-2 KA mount I use with 90mm/F2.8 macro,
500mm/F8 mirror and 200mm/F4 lenses.  Both my *istD and K10D can set
the aperture for each lens.  However, sometimes I have to twist the
lens on the mount  to get a clean connection.  Usually once the camera
can sense that it is an "A" type lens it performs without a problem.
