Thread: f-mount?

    Default f-mount?

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you could advise me on what the f-mount means. I use a Nikon D80 and I surf the buy/sell lenses forum alot ... I see alot of f-mount postings... just wondering if those actually fit my camera.

    And... how about the premium brands like Leica... how do I know which lenses fit my camera?

    Thanks.

    Lens that are F-mount will fit on your d80... but not all functions are enabled.

    F mount is designed by Nikon for Nikon use. If you have a Nikon D80, basically you can use almost all the F mount lenses with exception of the AI / AI-S lenses, those are MF (manual focus) and will not give metering with your model.

    I dun think Leica makes any F mount though.
