    And line it up to what? The 1.4 aperture of my lens or the red mark? They are very close to each other.

    The red dot on the shutter speed dial is for an f/1.2 lens or if using a lens with no aperture prong.

    I'm going to have to take my digital camera out and shoot pics of the analog camera? The ASA setting has absolutely nothing to do with the lens speed.

    Actually YES, it does on a Tn finder...
    you must index the max aperture to the meter by way of the asa dial.
    It works differently than the FTN and later photomic heads.

    Please do post said pix that prove your statement, since it goes against common knowledge of Photomic heads.
