Operating nikkor 70-300mm f4.5-f5.6 with nikon d5100


No Nikon lens ever zooms automatically, so I assume you mean focus.
The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, requiring the lens to have one. The older 70-300mm lenses lack this motor, expecting the camera body to have one.
The D5100 will only autofocus with lenses designated AF-S or AF-I. It will not autofocus with older AF-D and AF-G lenses.

I have a Nikon F55 fitted with a NIKKOR AF 28-100mm lense I wish to upgrade to digital. Can I use this lense on a digital body?


Yes. In general any Nikon lens made in the last half-century will work on the newest Nikon cameras, and this lens is no exception. Be aware that on most Nikon bodies (everything except the D700 and the D3 family) the smaller sensor will make the lens behave as if it were a 42-150mm. Also, on the lower-end bodies such as the D3000, this lens will not autofocus.

Compatible nikkor lenses for nikon f 55


Almost all Nikon-mount lenses made in the past half-century will work on the F55. With old lenses, you need to make sure they're AI or adapted to AI. Among newer lenses, you don't want to use the DX lenses designed specifically for digital cameras. DX lenses will work, but you will get vignetting (dark shadows in the corners). You will also lose the autofocusing capability with AF-S lenses.

I have a Nikon D50 which I frequently interchanges lenses. My AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens has 3 plastic retention flanges attaching to the camera body, and two of these have broken off. Can this be repaired...


without seeing pictures, I'd say you could TRY some plastic epoxy or some type of plastic-specific adhesive. i'm assuming you have the pieces that were broken off. otherwise, i'd say get a new lens...they are relatively reasonable used.

Nikkor lense


You need AF-S or AF-I Lenses. These have the autofocus motor built in to the lense. The D40 and D40x does not have an autofocus motor in the camera body itself, while the D80, D300, D3 Etc to have the motor in the camera. You can use most old lenses on your D40x, but you will have to focus them manually.

See Ken Rockwells page for a lot of D40 / D40x info
