I am sir. Like I told above, I double checked the in-camera setting when I couldn't find the correct values on the LCD. Nothing wrong with my settings.

that's very bizarre indeed.

when you take the lens completely off, does it say your entered value (f/1.4)? one of the common ways that this can happen is if the AIs follower tab on the camera gets a little stuck (due to poor lubrication or whatever). but then it shouldn't read the lens as stopping down until it gets to the point where the tab got stuck, f/4, instead of reading f/5.6 when you stop down to f/2.

you said the other lens was AI'd? did it read the correct values? maybe the AIs lens somehow has the AI ridge length on the aperture ring. does the cutout section stop around f/8 as it does in the picture in your original post?
