    Having to stop down to meter with non-Ai glass isn't too much on an inconvenience. I can easily push the DOF preview button with my middle finger on my FE. Just like anything, after enough practice it becomes natural. But if the OP isn't interested in stop-down metering, Ai and Ais lenses will meter without any extra input on the operators part. One less person to compete with for Non-Ai deals too...

    It can be cost-effective to buy the better models of non-AI lenses and have John White AI-them. I use lenses that he converted on both film and digital Nikons and they work flawlessly.

    As we are on apug and compatibility with d-word technology is not neccessarily needed, may I suggest that another nice and easy way to use pre-AI lenses is a pre-AI camera?

    I really liked my Nikkormat FT-2 before an accident transformed it into a piece of junk.

    I like my Nikkormats too. I have 5 or 6. I had them rewired to use SR44.
