Tokina 80-200 2.8 AT-X compatibility issue with Nikon D50

The lens works on manual setting, and erratically on some autofocusssettings. I can sometimes get it to work by unmounting and remounting.Is is just imcompatibly with my camera, or is there something I'm notaware of? (I've had the lens for many years and used it withoutproblems on my N8008S, so am disappointed it's not working well on thenew D50.) Thanks.
ps - I have a Nikon 35-70 AF which works fine on the D50.

I have one that had the same problem...it needs to be re-chipped to work with the newer camera's. It worked great on my N80 just not on my D-50...I got the F-- error when the exposure meter shut off. Send it to thk photo to be rechipped....takes about 3 - 4 weeks, gets cleaned and re-calibrated for about $83.

Need adapter tokina 100-400 f/4.5 minolta to Canon Digital SLR


You need a Minolta to Canon adopter. Because the Tokina was made for the Minolta in the first place. Be aware that even with the adopter, there is a very great chance you always have to focus manually, because the lens can be fitted on the camera, but the electronics will not be compatible.
That is one of the things you almost aways lose, when using lenses from a different make.

Sirius Mc 80-200 lens. Compatibility issue. I have


Sirius makes lenses with a variety of lens mounts. If the lens has a Nikon mount then it will fit on your D5100. However it will not autofocus, nor will the camera be able to set the exposure. In fact the exposure meter won't work at all, and you'll have to shoot in the Manual mode (turn the mode dial to M).

Is the sigma 18-200mm DC f3.5-6.3 compatable with nikon d50?


Assuming you get one with a Nikon mount, yes. Sigma makes their lenses with a variety of mounts to fit different makes of cameras. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit on a Nikon. A lens with a Nikon mount is fully compatible with the D50.

Nikon D50 with Nikon DX 18-55 lens will not focus


Hi,
Sorry to hear about your lens. If you are able to autofocus and take pictures with any other lens, then it means that your problem lies with the kit lens. If you can take picture in manual mode, but not in autofocus mode, then the AF motor in the lens in not functioning. I had the same thing happen to my 50mm 1.4 lens.

Depending on your location, there are Nikon repair centers in Melville, NY and Torrance, CA.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

My husband has a Nikon F65 NON-digital camera for which he has an APO sigma 170-500mm lens. I am thinking of purchasing a digital camera for him (Nikon D50). Will this sigma lens be compatible? Are lenses...


Yes, the lens will be compatible with the D50.

All lenses are optical: light comes in one end and goes out the other. There's no digital/non-digital about it.

What there is about lenses is the size of the image circle. Lenses cover a certain area. A lens that covers a 35mm film frame, such as the Sigma under discussion, will also cover a smaller area, such as the sensor on a D50. It's possible to design lenses with a smaller image circle. These smaller, lighter lenses are sometimes called "digital," because they are intended to only cover the typically smaller digital sensor. Using such a lens on a full-frame or film camera will produce dark corners. This is NOT an issue in your case.

Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

Tokina f2.8 100mm macro nikon mount. setting apature and shutter speed. little manual with lens not very informative.


Turn the aperture ring to the smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it there. Set the aperture and shutter speed on the camera body. You didn't specify which camera you're using, so I'm afraid I can't give you details there.

You will find all the information in the camera manual, not the lens manual.

Older Vivitar 28mm Lens on New Nikon D50 Digital Camera


Bob, there are several reasons why this won't work, mainly cost

An older manual focus wide angle will work in the manual mode on a D50. The can be had very cheap on eBay and the like.

Converting one that has a Canon FD mount to a Nikon is possible, but you would need one with a Nikon mount for parts. The focal plane distances are different between Nikon and Canon. An adapter for this is not possible without adding optics to compensate
