well, there are limits to how well it can compensate ... so if you're setting up low light, have as much extension as focal length and stop down to f16 it will be getting a little grainy and jumpy to look at ...
exposure problems? none, but of course you'll not have any flash metering off the film ... nothing that can't be 'preset' with an adjustable flash and some experience with it. Compared to any TTL system which meters off a focusing screen via a mirror there is nothing I know of which meters better... From what I read
there are more problems open wide than stopped down anyway ...
Drawbacks? hmmm that depends ... there is only stop down metering, so if you want to focus critically you'll need to open up to do that ... since the camera does not control the aperture the camera will not "stop down" during the taking. This is not a problem for me normally as I focus then wind the ring down to the look I want.
