This lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You need to switch the camera to manual exposure mode (turn the mode dial to the "M" position).

You won't get any help from the camera's exposure meter. You can review the picture and use the histogram to fine-tune the exposure.

Why wont my Nikon af nikkor 70-300mm G lens autofocus its self with my D5000 camera


The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens to have one. The old 70-300mm G lens does not have a focus motor, relying on the camera to have one. Thus, this combination will not autofocus.
The newer 70-300mm AF-S G lens, as well as the even newer 70-300mm VR AF-S lens, do have the autofocus motor and thus will autofocus on the D5000.

I now use this lens on Nikon N5005 and want to purchase the D5000 camera. Is this lens compatible?


Yes and no. The lens will fit on the D5000 without a problem. But the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film so you'll end up using only the center portion of the image. What this amounts to is that the lens will act like a 115-450 zoom would on the N5005. Also, if the lens doesn't have a focus motor built in (Sigma calls it HSM) then it won't autofocus on the D5000. You can still focus manually, though.

Will the Quanta 28-200 for the Nikon n75 work on the Nikon D5000?


Yes and no. I assume the lens is of more or less the same vintage as the N75? If so, the lens will fit onto the D5000. All of the camera's exposure and metering modes will work properly. However the lens lacks an interal focus motor and thus will not autofocus on the D5000. You can focus manually, and the green focus indicator in the viewfinder will continue to work.

Is the older vivitar 80-200mm f4.5 compatable to nikon d5000


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then yes and no.

The lens will fit on the D5000. You will not have any autofocus capability. Nor will you get any metering assistance from the camera's light meter. But if you're willing to focus and meter manually, the lens will work with the D5000.

Does the vivitar RGPRO-648 work with all the functions on my nikon D5000


Assuming you have the Nikon variant of the flash, it should do anything the D5000 can handle. It won't work as a Commander, so if you need that functionality you'll have to get an SB-900 (or an SB-800 if you can find one).

Lens works fine in manual focus on Nikon D5000 but won't autofocus.


The D5000 needs an AF-S lens to autofocus.
Nikon have not fitted the mechanical focus drive to the D5000.

Can't autofocus Nikon 50mm f1.8 lens


The lens has an autofocus motor, but because it is an older model, it will not autofocus for the D40(x), D60, or D5000, which have more stripped down components. I advise you exchange the lens for the newer model, or return the D5000 and get the D90 for just a bit more.
