Hi,
I'm currently using the 18-200VR lens with my D80. I also own a F-601s. Can I use the lens with the 601?

Advice needed and appreciated!!!

You can mount the lens on the F-601s but the image will not fill the whole film frame.. You can try. I don't think you'll want to use it. Also, does F601s allow you to select aperture with a dial control? If not, you probably can only use the lens on P and S modes only. I'm not familiar with F-601s.

DX lenses are made specifically for the Nikon APS sensors on Nikon's digital cameras. With the possible exception of the 12-24, they will generally not fit the 35mm format, leaving a strange black semi-circle on your picture.

The F601 only has the one dial for shutter speed selection. So only P and S modes are available when used with crippled...oh, I mean G lenses. Also the VR function will not be available.

OK. That means I'm not able to use the len with the F-601. Was still thinking that I automatically have an 18mm lens... :)

Nice try..., but it is DX lens.

You will have vignetting on film slr camera if you able to use dx lens on film body.
