You can use it, but it will not autofocus on your D60. It will set exposure properly, but you will have to turn the focus ring.

I have a 35mm film Nikon camera with Quantaray NF AF Lenses. I'd like to find an affordable digital camera that I can still use these lenses, any suggestions ?


Those lenses will fit on every Nikon digital SLR. However, the autofocus will only work on cameras with an autofocus motor, the the AF will not work on the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000, and D5100. Note that this is just the focusing: if you're willing to focus manually then those lenses will work perfectly well on those cameras.

Due to the smaller image sensor of most digital cameras, the lenses will act as if they were about 1.5 times longer. Thus a 50mm lens on a digital camera will give about the same field of view as a 75mm lens would on a film camera. This applies to all Nikon dSLRs except for the D3 family and the D700, which behave in this respect like a 35mm film camera.

You have to decide what's affordable for you, balancing such factors as weight, ease-of-use, and of course cost.

Please recommend digital SLR nikon cacmera for this lens


Any Nikon digital SLR will work with this lens. However, there are two things to consider.

On cameras other than the D700 and the D3 family, the smaller sensor will make the lens appear as a 105-315mm. On the D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, and D5000 cameras, you will lose the autofocus capability.

Using auto focus 35-55 mm lens on d40x will not take picture but if I use manual focus, I can take picture.


It is because the lense is only an AF lense. The d40x doesn't have an on-body auto focus motor so that needs to be on the lense. I have a d60 and have the same problems. You can use the manual focus on the AF lenses; however, to use auto focus, you need to buy an AF-S lense. It's disappointing I know, but that's the price we must pay for saving on our body lol

Minolta to Nikon --Switching to Digital -- LENSE problems


Mirror lenses have no aperture nor AF, so they mount via a T mount. A $30 item that screws on the end of a mirror lens that fits your camera. A mirror lens has it's physical likes and dislikes against a glass 500mm. A glass 500mm will give a better image if you can stop down to F8 F16. Then you have shutter speeds to consider and those lenses are usually connected to the camera's contacts. So they can be specific to a single body. There are older Tamron lenses that take Adaptall mounts, they are old and hard to find. But they solved the multiple body problems for "auto" program lenses. None had AF, when AF camera around, we were back to individual lenses per body.

Can I use a Kenko Lens with a Nikon D60?


If it's an AF teleconverter you will be able to use it and get proper exposure from the camera, but it will not autofocus with the D60. The D60 requires AF-S lenses and teleconverters for autofocus.

Can Nikon D60 work with 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G Zoom Nikkor


Yes, it will work just fine. I have this lens and my father has basically the same camera (D40) and it works just fine with this lens.

Tamron 28-300mm Model 185D Auto Zoom on Nikon d40


Autofocus function on the D40 only supports lenses with the
AF-S feature, which have an autofocus motor built into the lens,
instead of using an autofocus motor drive built into the camera.

The Tamron lens you have, does not have a built in motor and
the autofocus function relies on the motor drive in the camera.

It will not work with the D40 or D60, but it will work with other
Nikon digital SLRs, such as the D80. Need to get an AF-S
type lens or upgrade to different Nikon digital SLR. Unless
you do this, you will have to manually focus the Tamron lens.

All of the Nikon DX (for digital) series lenses are also AF-S
type, so they will work with the D40, which is designed as
an entry level digital SLR, therefore it is intended primarily
for use with DX lenses, which are typically sold in a kit with
the D40. Most common one is Nikkor 18-55mm DX AF-S.

Other Nikon AF-S lenses made for film cameras (FX type)
will also work with the D40, but these tend to be expensive
professional models. DX series lenses tend to be more
affordable. You might consider the 18-200mm DX AF-S
as an alternative to the Tamron, but these are not cheap.
