Can i use nikkon d3200 as webcam


Normal, when you hook up a camera to a computer, you can't use the sensor. The camera is ready to use the USB cable for transferring pictures from the memory card to the computer. But Nikon does have software for DSLR's, to do live view on a computer screen. You can The software called Nikon Camera Control Pro, allows you to change settings on the camera from the computer.
The software will set you back something over $100, so I think a normal webcam will cost less.

I have a nikon D80 purchased with a 18-135mm kit lens which I have found surprisingly good and very sharp as confirmed by Rockwell etc. I bought a Nikon 50mm 1.8D based on the fantastic claims of sharpness...


I don't think you're going to see much difference in sharpness between the two lenses, because they're both such good lenses.

You can use the lens in any exposure mode. Leave the aperture ring set at f/22. Control the aperture from the camera body, the same way you do it with the 18-135mm. The zoom doesn't have an aperture ring --- so just set the ring on the 50mm to f/22 and then pretend it doesn't have one either.

I have an old Pantax 35mm SLR camera (zx5). Would the lenses still fit the new bodies or do I need to purchase an entire new kit?


Nope! Your old Pentax (and Taukimar!) lenses will still work. Any type of "K-Mount" lens will work on a Pentax digital.

Is this a good lens?


That lens have a FD mount. That means that you need to an adapter to use on a New Digital Canon Camera. The problem with the FD-EF adapter is that the it has a lens inside to correct the focal point. It's usually a very BAD glass. The 60-300 F4 will become something like a 84-420 F8. You will loose all sharpness. My opinion is DONT use FD lens on a EOS Camera.

What type of zoom lenses are suitable for nikkon D-60 digital camera


For Nikon Digital SLRs there is a special line of lenses. Almost any Nikon lens will work on the D60 body, but lenses not specifically designed for a Nikon Digital SLR will lack some features offered by the body. Nikon D series lenses, that are made for the Nikon Digital SLR series, are fully compatible. Although, any lens, AI type thru D type will work.

One of the snags with Digital SLRs is that lenses designed for film cameras have different focal point characteristics, and therefore altered focal length when used on a digital camera.

A film frame is 24mm x 36mm. The CCD in a digital SLR (Charge Coupled Device, changes light energy into electrical energy, which is then recorded as a digital image file inside the camera) is not that large. So the light is focusing on a smaller area surface. This changes the focal length of the lens.

There are other undesireable effects using film camera lenses with Digital SLRs. One of the desireable qualities of old lenses is the cost. The D60 is a great camera. You lose some features with older lenses, but you still get the same image quality.

I cannot tell you exactly what zoom lens to purchase, because it's like you asking what car you should buy. There are too many variables to consider. Most pros carry the famous Nikon D 80-200mm F 2.8 ED, which is a pro lens, with big weight, superb optics, and no finicky soft spots.

It's clean all the way through the range, at every aperature. But the cost is high, probably more than you paid for the D-60 body. But if it were me, I'd spend the money.
