Question about Nikon Zoom 80-200mm f/4.0 AIS Lens
I recently purchaced the new digital SLR Nikon D90. When I attach an old Vivitar 80-200 1:4.5 mc zoom no. 280209980, the camera will not take a photo. The lense will zoom and focus but it will not capture the image.
This lens is too old for the D90, it has not got the electronics for metering and autofocus.
You can use it manually in M mode but you will have to set the aperture and shutter yourself.
The D90 manual has a section on compatible lenses, page 228 in my version.
This recommends CPU lenses for the D90, type G and D.
