    A bit of the history of the lens starts here on the mir.com site:

    Its a good thing you got the newer lens and not the older non-ai lens. The non-ai lens will not fit the FM camera. My older 55mm Micro will only work on my older F2.

    The camera and lens arrived today, and they both seem in great shape. I'm anxious for some daylight to take some pictures with them. Both are pretty straightforward, except for the flash. Anyone know offhand what level of flash automation the FM2 and AI(S) lenses support? TTL? A? or just Manual? I have SB-28 and a SB-50DX flashes. I don't have manuals for anything except the SB-50, and it doesn't mention the FM2.

    Apparently it supports the A and M modes. I'm not sure how A differs from TTL, but have ordered the manual so that should tell me.

    Johnnywalker,
    The Nikon flash units don't provide ttl operation on this camera,
    The small contact in the hotshoe is for a readylight in the viewfinder.
    You can use any standard flash with it auto operation would be dependent on the flash.
    Oh yeah, watch the synch speed when you use flash. The flash doesn't set it for you.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    I purchased the non-AI version new as my first extra lens (prior to tele or wide) and am very happy with and still use it for general as well as macro photography. There should be an auto extension tube with it which allows focussing down to 1:1 with auto diaphragm and TTL exposure determination with the built-in meter, although with the tube it will require stop-down metering.
