When you bought this lens, did it say it had a Nikon mount?

Phoenix Lens Adaptor


There are lots of adopters you can buy, to work with lenses from other brands. Bower has lots of adopters, but the easy one is just a Nikon to Canon adopter. The lens is manual focus, so you can't win anything by searching for an expensive solution.

Can I use TOKINA lens 28mm-210 lens with this Nikon body or can I use with other NIKON body D 700?


Tokina makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with Canon mount, for example, won't fit onto a Nikon. Assuming you get the lens with a Nikon mount, then yes, you can use it with a D70 and with a D700.

I have a D70 and have just received a 50mm NIKKOR AF 1.8 primary lens. when I fit the lens, I get a flashing FEE message and the camera deos not work. Can you help?


Turn the aperture ring on the lens to its smallest aperture (largest f/number) and lock it. Control the aperture from the camera, just as with other lenses.

Can I buy an adapter to use the 28-200 mm Sigma Aspherical lens fitted to my Pentax MZ-50 film camera on my Canon EOS 1000d DSLR. Would it work?


You may be able to find an adaptor, but I doubt it and you would lose many functions in any case. It could end up that the lens will not auto focus or that it would not meter properly. These adaptors are made so that specialty lenses (such as fisheye or shift lenses) can be mounted on cameras when needed. Your 28-200 would probably be cheaper to by in an EOS mount.

I just bought the Tokina SD 12-24 F4 (IF) DX wide-angle lens for my D70, and it does not autofocus. I'm being told by the company I bought it from that i am past their 2 week return policy. Does this lens...


Only the MkII version of this lens has an autofocus motor built in, the MkI relies on a motor in the body of some Nikon AF SLRs to autofocus. The D70 does not have an inbuilt AF drive motor, so if you have the MkI lens then you can only use it in manual focus mode on your camera.

Using vivitar 70-300 lens


Yes and yes. Bear in mind that not all features may work. You probably won't get autofocus or metering with the Nikon D90, for example.

I have a tokina 500mm f8 lens with a P/K mount


This will depend on the lens you have now.

Some Tokina lenses have a universal fitting, with a separate adaptor mount for each camera body they fit. Its usually the last 5 - 10mm of the mount, and its identifiable by a second release button, which allows the specific fitting to be changed. If you have one of those, you just need the Nikon fitting.

If the P/K mount is an integral part of the lens, you have a couple of choices.
(1) You could get an engineering shop to alter the mount. This costs a lot and probably isn't worth the hassle. (It might be better to sell your lens and buy the nikon equivalent).
(2) You could use an adaptor. These are readily available on eBay.
For example:
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Pentax-PK-K-Lens-to-Nikon-AI-AF-F-camera-mount-Adapter_W0QQitemZ150400359906QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_Photography_CameraLenses_Lens_caps_hoods_adaptors_ET?hash=item23048f5de2

Note that just because it has the right (i.e. Nikon) fitting, it doesn't mean that it will necessarily have full functionality on the body you intend to use with it.

Some Nikon bodies are "extremely fussy" about which lenses they can use, and it might be worth evaluating whether your proposed solution would work with the camera body you have in mind before committing to any sort of expenditure.

Nikon D40 I bought a set of macro lenses that said they were compatible for the d40 but i cannot figure out how to fit them. They are 52mm lenses - should i have bought an adaptor or something? where...


Macro lenses are mounted to your camera body in place of the lens you currently have mounted on the camera. If you bought the camera with the lens already mounted you may not have realized that the camera and lens are 2 separate objects. To remove your lens see page 8 in your user manual for instructions and an illustration. If you don't have your user manual handy, you can download a PDF file from NikonUSA Here.

If what you bought are macro rings, they go on the camera, then your regular lens mounts onto the ring. You can use one or more of the rings between the lens and camera to produce different macro settings.

If what you bought are macro filters, they screw on to the front of your lens. If you have a UV filter on your lens you need to remove that before you attach another filter.

D40x Camera with mirror lens = black pictures


Usually tele lenses need longer exposure,and mirror lenses need more than normal lenses.Try with 1sec, half sec,( 2 in the speed dial, not 2" ) or quarter sec (4 in the speed dial) exposures.

One more thing, you need good sturdy stands to hold cameras.
