Re: Nikkor 55 3.5 Micro auto-compensation?

This is a great experiment. I just did a quick setup to get the idea, and the exposure does indeed get darker as magnification increases at f3.5. At f8, the lens compensates by opening the aperture gradually, to nearly 1.5 stops at the full (1:2) magnification.

Sincere thank you, CK. This has given me a fuller knowledge of how the lens functions.
