I purchased a *NEW* Nikkor 50mm f/1.2 ai-s. It's for use on my Nikon FE.
at 2.0 i get accurate exposure from the meter.
at 1.4 i get accurate exposure from the meter.
at 1.2 - the meter exposes exactly the same as 1.4 !
Note: the blades fully open at 1.2, so more light is definitely hitting the mirror.
I'm guessing the FE's meter cannot read at 1.2 lens...
is anyone aware of this? or have you experienced otherwise?
(A Nikon service adviser said they would investigate and touch back, but thought at 1.2 the lens may "uncouple". - Im not familiar with that terminology - i'm awaiting their reply on what they meant by that. For sure they didn't mean the lens would fall off camera )
