Was reading about some lenses on the Bjorn Rorslett website about 'chipping' some lenses. If I understand correctly, it involves putting a cpu chip in a lens (mostly MF lenses) to allow metering. Would doing this allow some of my older AI/AIS lenses to meter with the D40? If so, who provides this service and how much does it cost.

Also, noticed the Voigtlander MF f mount lenses 40/2 and 58/1.4 do have a chip - will they meter?
