    Just wondering if the f/1.2 lens (not 1:2) is still available new in the AI
    format ? As would fit a FM/FG/FE etc

    Ai= Automatic indexing. Nikkor lenses for camera FM, FE, F2AS, F2A and
    later cameras.
    AiS= Control on Nikkor lenses for cameras with programmed automatic
    exposure (popular in amature phtography), such as the N2000, N8008, F4,
    or later cameras permitting Programmed" features.

    Sorry should have asked this firstly

    will ai-s fit ai ? do I need to do anything different ? for instance
    I'd like to use it on a f2 or f2tn or fm/fe/fg

    thanks in advance

    The AIS lens will work on all late model Film cameras but only on a few
    of Nikon's digital cameras and still permit use of the camera meter.
    But yes, AIS will work on the f2. F2, great camera!
