My M42 Pentacon 135mm 2.8 is working flawlessly on F4 and my F4 I don’t know how but he knows that it’s 2.8 lens, same for Helios 58mm 2.0 , F4 knows it’s 2.0 ... i don’t know how. So I think A and M modes will work with 85mm 1.4G.
    Please if someone can help me to explain 85mm 1.4G on Nikon F4 . I am hesitating between 1.4G and 1.4D, but I would love to get 1.4G. I am ok to shoot at 1.4 only. The reason I want 1.4G is because It’s probably better as investment for my next purchase of mirrorless camera, because 1.4G is sharper
    I cannot answer your question regarding the function problems you are having issues with. If you are considering Nikon mirrorless next you would want to go with the G, or just wait until you get the mirrorless camera. The Nikon mirrorless mount is different and the new 85 f 1.8 is pretty impressive. I am waiting on mine to arrive. I preordered it based on my 50 1.8 S and since ordering have seen some great samples.

    I have an F4E and love it. The F4E makes it a lot easier and quicker to remove the batteries. I too like the conventional controls rather than menus and thumbwheels

    Bump.

    Anyone knows how G lenses works on Nikon F4? I heard it will only work correctly in P and S modes. And in A mode it will work at smallest aperture ...f/22??? Or 1.4??
    If I can get work 85mm 1.4G at 1.4 in A or M mode that would be enough for me (without string).

    Dear friend please can you help me ? I want to know how 85mm f/1.4G will functioning on F4 . In every details. Also I want to know how to shoot at 1.4 aperture all the time ? And I guess the lens is already closed to f/16 so I need to use a string or lock the lever so it will be open at 1.4? But if so , will the F4 recognize that lens is open at 1.4 and metering correctly ?
    Thank you for your help
