Question about Cameras
Using the Nikkor 70-300 mm lens with mynew digital camera-- D60 Nikon is not working well and I don't know what's wrong. Anyone had problems? I'm not getting the results (as advertised) since I'm used to a 500 mm mirrored on my Minolta and was TOLD when purchasing this 70-300 digital lens that it was the equivalent of the 500 I'd been using (didn't make sense to me, but was a camera shop). Now, results are quite inferior--can't get good pics at distances which the Minolta had GREAT results. Trying to switch to totally digital but did I buy the wrong camera? Is there a Sigma or other large telephoto lens I can get for the Nikon D60 that will produce good results? Thanks. email@example.com.

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.

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.

Yes. Although because the D3000 has an APS-C sensor there will be a 1.5x crop factor, so the lens will have an equivalent angle of view to a 105-315mm in 35mm film terms.
