hey guys, I'm using a D60, and according to the manuals and information online, it doesnt have a camera motor that drives lenses, so it can only auto focus on lenses with in-built motors. For the Nikkor 70-300mm AF, it seems to be campatible as seen from the website?

I thought only AF-S lenses? This is a little confusing. Or did the website mean it can be used but not AF mode?

You can still use it with D40/X/60.
Just that it is manual focusing

It would mf on your d60 because this lens is not built with the af-s motor in it u may consider 75-300mm vr instead

Perhaps the issue of compatibility mentioned, is refering to - can mount the lens/cannot mount.

For Nikkor lenses, as long as you see AF-S, the lens can autofocus on your D60. All other types will not AF, so have to manual focus with those.

Ahh great I get it now, I believe they meant can mount but they didn't state whether the AF mode would work. So the lens won't work in auto focus, wad a pity haha. Oh wells, thank you all!
