Question about Sigma APO 170-500mm f/5-6.3 DG for Minolta Digital
If anything, you will gain image quality because the sensor on the D5000 is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. Thus you will only be using the central portion of the lens. On the D5000, the 28-80mm lens will act as a 42-120mm would on the F65.
However, you will lose autofocus capability. The D5000 does not have a focus motor in the body, relying on the lens having the motor, and neither version of the 28-80mm lens has a focus motor. The lowest-end Nikon dSLR with a focus motor is the D90.
