    Nikon Lenses AI'd by John White

    I just got back a couple of my lenses converted by John White. The turnaround is unbelievably fast and I highly recommend him!

    28 f2.0


    55 f3.5 Micro

    Beautiful images! Old Nikkor lenses are so great!

    How does John White do the AI-ing? Mount a new aperture ring - or does he modify the original one?.

    he modifies the existing one. there are official Nikon AI conversion kits available (old stock) which essentially replaces the aperture ring...but nothing available for my lenses which is why i went with John...the lenses won't be as nice-looking...but, hey, i buy lenses to use them.

    I agree. My 1,2/55 was AId by Erik Five and his file. It doesnŽt look like it used to, but it works!
