Nikkor 70-300 mm lens and Nikon D60 --NOT a good match or what?

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. cowgirl17@embarqmail.com.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: does the nikon nikkor af 70-210mm telephoto lens

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.

Where is the reset switch of nikon d40 camera ?, how to reset camera?


There're actually two buttons. Press and hold the Info and zoom-in buttons (both marked with a green dot) for more than two seconds.

Full details are in the "Two-Button Reset" section of the manual (page 38 in my copy). If you need a manual you may download a copy from here.

I have an old nikkor 35 mm 1:1.4 389334. can i used it on my d60 camera & how.


Yes, you can use it, but with some restrictions. Obviously, it won't autofocus. You'll also have to use the camera in Manual exposure mode, without any help from the light meter.

Be aware that with the 1.5 crop factor of the D60, the lens won't be a wide angle.

Is it a Nikon mount indeed. What a question!?! Couldn't fit any other mount on the camera!!! Just a guess here, the lens is probably not aa AF-I, an AF-S or a DX lens. The D60 has limited lens usage. The lens types mentioned are the only ones that fully work on the D60. It will work with G types as long as they are also AF-I or AF-S. AF and AF-D lenses will not auto focus. Hope this helps. Will

Nikkor 70-300 lens wont autofocus on d60.. HELP!!!


There is a known defect in some of the Nikkor lens' that were manufactured during a certain time period. The same thing happened to my lens.. it stopped autofocusing for no reason at all. (It was purchased in May 08). I shipped it to Nikon and I received a new lens within 10 days of shipment. You have a 3 year warranty on the camera and the lens'. Nikon has AMAZING customer support when it comes to legitimate issues.
Go to the web site. Fill out a repair order and send the lens to them exactly as stated in the instructions. You will have a new lens within 2 weeks.
