FA matrix meter with ai lenses?
I've always used my FA with AF or AIS lenses. Just won an auction for a 35 f2 and 43-86 ai lenses and wondered if it'll matrix meter with an ai lens? Reading a post in the manual focus lens forum seems to suggest it will but I'm still uncertain. I'll have the new lenses in about a week so I'd thought I'd ask before experimenting.

See this matrix:
AI lenses allow matrix metering. Lenses converted to AI do not.
