    All were shot with same ISO, f-stop, manual focus, no VR, with the only possible variation being shutter speed if the lighting changed. I can check my notes to see what the shutter speeds were, but in all of my test shots, that lens over exposed.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    I should have indicated that THIS was the procedure I followed...shooting at the same settings REGARDLESS of the meter reading....and shot ONLY IN THE SAME LIGHTING CONDITIONS...
    As I suggested...with less than 1/3 F-stop difference between the lenses, that could be just a difference in coatings...

    Check my current post "Nikon AFD lens problems".........could it be you have a similar problem to mine of traces of oil leaking onto the diaphragm blades, causing them to become "sticky" and not stop down properly, thus causing overexposure?

    I've used my 60mm AF-D on several Nikon DSLR's and in each case it exposed spot on. It is also much sharper than your tests indicated.
