Can you focus and expose right?

I mean EOS 300 is dysmal in both of these but 600 is 15 years older technology.
And somewhat more high-end, real prism, changeable focusing glass etc.

Get a chipped adaptor for focus confirm, otherwise just stick your lens on a dumb adaptor. Set the camera to P or A . I have a few EOS film cameras and apart from a 35-105 af zoom, I exclusively use MF lenses. My favourites are my Nikkors.

I have used my m42 lenses on Canon EOS, both film and digital. Worked fine

As others have said, chipped adaptor. But really the focusing experience on a 300 is no different to a Zenit with empty ground glass, right? Smile

Aperture Priority mode should select shutter speed automatically.

Use stop-down metering in Manual mode.

Mirror may hit some lenses lenses; typically only a problem with some 50mm and some wider lenses; longer than 50mm typically do not get hit.

Without chip fast focus screen is needed to see focus by eye with lenses faster than f/2.8
