I recognize this has been discussed before, but hope that my contribution will prove helpful by placing most of the required information on chipping Nikkors in one place, as well as reflecting the latest CPU features available.

I have done this on six lenes and will shortly add six more.

I also address auto exposure non-linearity at some length, and illustrate my findings together with an explanation of how to revert aperture control in 'A' mode to the lens, away from the camera's control dial, thus making all pre-Ai-S lenses capable of proper auto exposure metering in 'A' and 'M' modes.

I have also integrated my approach with tailored Adobe Camera RAW lens correction profiles, which I have made, to get the best out of these old lenses.

My site is strictly not for profit. However, if anyone would like me to make a lens profile (RAW or DNG non-zoom only) for lenses I do not own, I would be pleased to do so, though that means trusting me with your lens for a day or two and paying return shipping. The only camera I use which takes Nikkors is a D700, but I would expect my profiles will work fine with other bodies in Lightroom or Photoshop.
