    Do Nikon mount Soviet lenses meter couple with AI bodies?

    I've looked at a few Helios and other Kiev 19/Nikon mount Soviet lenses on Ebay. It looks like the back of aperture ring does not have the notch to push the body's metering tab when rotated. Does anyone know if they will meter couple or do you need to do stop down metering?

    I have a Helios 40-2 and, like every Helios model 40 lenses, it is a Pre-Set lens with no meter coupling. Stop down metering is required.
