As AiS lenses are MF lenses, you don't lose out on AF. However, with D90 as body, what you do lose out is the metering.





    From your question, it's very obvious you didn't read through the user manual properly. Right?
    I posted the link again, hope it works this time.

    yupp, I understand that I can AF by using d90 but will lose out on the metering. I didn't read through the user manual because I haven't bought my d90 yet. Haha. I'm planning to it next week so I'm looking for a prime lens in addition to the kit 18-105mm lens.

    The metering problem aside, is it advisable to buy such old lens in terms of the wear and tear issue?

    that means you didn't understand Smiles88's point...
    The lens you linked is really old. It's an Ai lens, which means it has NO autofocus capability at all, regardless of what camera body you use. Smiles' point was that it makes no difference, hence you don't lose out any AF capability

    ZCA is right. Tt's what I meant. If you read the title of the sale, you will find tt it states 50mm 1.8 AiD/AiS Manual Focus lenses. So, it will not be able to AF using any body, even if you're using D3s. If you wish to have metering with these old lenses, you should be looking at D300s or D7000 for DX. I'm not sure if D300 supports it though

    oh okay okay, now I get it because I got confused between the old lenses and afd lenses.

    Please correct me if I'm wrong:
    afd lenses are those which don't have motor in them and have to rely on the camera's motor to af right?

    and afs lenses af faster than afd lenses and more accurate?

    In a way, yes for the first part. They use a screw drive thing for the AF. Only D90 and above has it I think. Can anyone verify this?

    For the second part, about AFS lenses being faster and more accurate, I'm not tt sure about tt

    yes afd lenses are lenses that depend on the bodies motor for af function, eg:d90, d70, d50, d7000, and so on...

    and no, not all afs lenses are faster than afd lenses, eg: AFS 50 1.4 is slower than AFD 50 1.4...

    i actually have the 50 1.4 ais, and it is a manual lens. like what ZCA and smiles mentioned, doesn't matter what body you use (D90, D300, D3..) it still wont auto-focus.

    if you're not too bad with manual focus, this is a great lens, even when you use on a D90. you lose out on the metering, and will only work in M mode (won't work in P, A or S). but it will force you to learn how to take a proper exposure, and the relationships between ISO, shutter speed and aperture. here's an example shot:

    I am also a D90 user and I am new to this thread. Anyone has a Nikon 55-300mm VR from this group? Any review/feedback on this using D90?

    I am planning to buy one but i am not sure how would this perform in our D90.

    Thanks.

    Nikon has a few generic types of lenses:

    1) Ai (or AiS, which is slightly newer).
    - fully manual-focus.
    - No electronics. Cannot meter with D90 and below.

    2) AF (can auto-focus by the screw-drive from body)
    - Can meter with D90 and below.
    - AF.....D lenses have aperture ring.

    3) AF-S
    - built-in motor for auto-focus
    - generally faster to AF, but not always the case

    These are just broad descriptions. There are probably exceptions which I'm unaware of, but for the most part it should be right.

    * someone please correct me if I've made a mistake

    not all lenses though... best to check at point of purchase, instead of getting caught unawares. As akerue stated, some are grey sets.

    Haha. I wasn't really thinking about grey sets. But with NSC saying they will also service grey sets, might be more worth it now.
