I own a Tamron SP 80-210 adaptall II len with Pentax mount. I currently own a Nikon 7000. Can I use the Tamron with the Nikon by adding a adaptor? Any suggested adaptor I should be using? Thanks


Hi, The focal distance on Pentax camera's is different then the focal distance on Nikon's so because of that Pentax lens' can't be adapted to work on a Nikon camera. I'd suggest finding a similar lens with a Nikon mount as cross brand mounting is quite difficult.

Is the nikorF AF 35 to 105mm Lens compatible to Nikon D7000? How about tamron 70 to 210mm with 52 adaptor?


The Nikkor lens is fully compatible. The Tamron is dependent on the mounting. Tamron makes lenses for a variety of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. If the lens has a Nikon mount, there should be no problem using it with the D7000.

Remember that the D7000's sensor is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. This will cause the lenses to produce a field of view that is smaller than on a 35mm camera. The 35-105mm, for example, will give a field of view similar to what a 53-160mm would produce on a film camera.

I HAVE A CANON EOS REBEL T2 35MM FILM CAMERA AND AM PURCHASING A CANON TI1. CAN I USE THE SAME LENS ON BOTH CAMERAS?


Yes, you should be able to use them. Be aware, moving to digital there is a 1.6 crop factor. The means your 100 mm lens will have the field of view (FOV) of a 160 mm. No, it does not mean it is a 160 mm it is the fFOV is the same as a 160 mm. Also, at the other end is were you will most want to purchase a wide angle lens.
Example: your 28 mm film lens now has the FOV of 44.8, not wide angle. As you can see wide angle is where the move to digital crop sensor cameras lose out. To get back to wide angel you would need a 17 mm lens, that would give you 27.2 mm FOV.
To figure FOV take the lens multiply it by the crop factor. On a Canon it is 1.6, on a Nikon it is 1.5, the 4/3 sensor is 2.0.

In the past when film was still king and I was using it I had always used a UV or a Polarized lens cover. Now in the DSLR world I've been told that I should not use a non rated DSLR lens cover. Is there...


Without specific reference to the D90, the following applies to almost all dSLR's: Skylight filters (UV) are fine, but avoid using auto white balance. Polarisers can prevent the autofocus system from working, but the more expensive circular polarisers are usually OK although don't produce quite the same effect as linear polarisers.

Blinking green led even D90 is off


I couldn't find a reference to a blinking green led when the d90 is off.

I would refer you to Nikon tech support for this one.

Do all nikon lenses mount the same or are the digital cameras difrent? I own a nikon 6006 camera and want to know if i can use my lenses with the D90 or do I need to get diffrent lenses?


Yes and no. Physically they will all fit (with very rare exceptions, such as the 6mm f/2.8 fisheye).

Most Nikon dSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. What this means is that you end up using only the central area of each lens. In effect this means that each of your lenses is effectively 1.5 times longer. A 200mm lens on a digital camera will give you the same angle of view a 300mm lens on a film camera gives you. The D3 family and the D700 are the exceptions, behaving similar to a film camera in this respect.

Older Nikon lenses do not have the electronic circuitry necessary to communicate with newer cameras. In the case of the D90, this means that such lenses will not communicate with the camera's exposure meter. They can still be used in Manual mode, but without assistance from the meter. You'll need to move up to a D300 if you want to meter with such lenses.

Bear in mind that lens technology continues to improve every year. Given an old lens and a new lens of similar focal length (or zoom range), the new lens will almost invariably outperform the old one.

WHICH LENS WILL GIVE THE SAME RESULT OF 50 MM LENS IN FILM MODEL


To figure the equivalent coverage comparable to a film camera, multiply the number of mm by 1.5. Example: a 50mm lens will be like a 75mm lens on a digital camera.

I'm planning to buy a DSLR but confused what to buy


You have named several excellent digital SLR cameras aimed at the top end of the amateur/semi professional market.
I have the Nikon D200 and have been very pleased with it.
As stated by JCDill, you must really decide what you want and can afford. The camera body you choose will commit you down one path or another. For example, if you choose Canon, only Canon or OEM (Other Equipment Manufacturers) such as Sigma lenses will fit your camera body. Canon have a good reputation for their auto-focus, while Nikon make lenses that are the envy of others.
If this is your first digital SLR then you might be best buying an entry level body with a multi-purpose zoom lens such as the Nikon D40. There is a lot to learn.
If you are converting from film SLR and already have a set of lenses, then the cameras you mentioned will probably be able to use your existing lenses (but this is less so with Canon than Nikon). I was ecstatic to disover that my old Nikon 500mm mirror lens works in manual mode (with metering displayed) on my Nikon D200 but would not work properly on my Nikon D70.
I hope this helps.

How do i change ISO/ASA on the nikon N65?


The ISO is automatically set by the DX code on your film canister - if there is no code, the camera sets ISO 100. If you load canisters yourself with, say ISO 400 film, you can adjust the exposure using the exposure compensation button at the top right side of the LCD ( " +/- " ). Using ISO 400 film set the +/- to minus 2 ( -2 ) so that it will UNDEREXPOSE 2 stops since the film is 2 stops ( 4X ) more sensitive than ISO 100 film.
