Hi all,

I've just started a year long photography course and the first two weeks are in film. I am really struggling with almost every aspect of it.

At the moment I am using my sisters camera and I think I need to buy one myself to get some practise in.

I am considering a Nikon F90X (purely because I am reading a book and the author used this for his shots).

I would like auto focus and to be compatible (?) with my current Nikon lenses (DX and G).

Thanks for any feedback, Mandy

You won't be able to use most of your DX lenses with a film SLR. But G lenses should work with the more modern film ones... not sure about the F90x though. Google it! I'm sure it's easy-to-find information. =)

No, F90X is still using non G lenses, all the lenses need aperture ring, else you only stuck with one aperture setting since there is no sub command dial to adjust aperture on a F90X.

you are better of using F80 or F100 if you want to use G lenses.
btw, 35mm film format same like FX on DSLR, using DX lenses on film SLR will suffer from vignetting like this.
