Do the Nikon 1's meter with non cpu lenses?
BillD7100 D300, F4e, N90s, N6006, N2000, N6000, D40, N5005, black F2 eye level, chrome F2AS, black Nikomat FTNSo many cameras, so little time....
Unfortunately no, non-CPU lenses won't meter. Here is a link to restrictions of the FT1 adapter including what will meter.
According to that chart, you have center weighted and spot metering and can use the camera in manual and aperture priority with AI lenses.
The link is better informed than I. I thought I remembered AI lenses not having all the stuff. Glad you have what you need though.
