    Well the title of the thread says it all.
    So does it?

    Thanks for your answers.

    Yes.

    The system quenches the flash when enough light has been emitted. This works irrespective of the lens used.

    Of course you have to perform ambient light reading at working aperture, if you so care.

    Hi Jim
    Thanks.
    I thought so, I just wasn't 100% sure.

    Now, off to burn some film...
