    Sounds like a question that should have been asked prior to purchase.

    If it's a pre ai lens it should work just fine on your FE, provided you use stop down metering.

    This is true.. Assumtion on my part. I believe it said discription Non AI? I might contact seller and see if they will alow me to send it back. I figured old lens + old camera equals a perfect fit. Not the case.

    Non AI will fit on FE, you just need to flip meter coupling lever.

    That lens would fit and couple to the meter just fine on an F, F2, Nikkormats up to FT2, etc. The FE is considerably newer than any of these. The FE2 will not accept non-AI lenses.

    FE manual, instructions for using that lens on the FE on pp 30. http://www.cameramanuals.org/nikon_pdf/nikon_fe.pdf

    When all else fails, read the instructions.
