    That sure looks like an AI lens to me FWIW.

    Long as I'm nit-picking, you might want to clean that fingerprint off the glass.

    … not that it's degrading the shots too badly. Cat shots came out nice! :)

    Based on the serial#, it's a K (non-AI) 7/5 design, converted to AI.

    Nikon AI(S) as well as pre-AI lenses work on any Nikon F -> E-mount adapter. As long as the lens has an aperture ring you're good to go.
