The D60 works best with their new "DX" series lenses. Other Nikon mount lenses will fit on the camera, however you will lose many of the functions, primarily auto focus. You need to weigh the pros & cons of using your existing lenses without full functions, vs. maybe looking at the D80 model or a gently used D50, D70 or D70s, all of which will work better with earlier generation lenses.

I have a nikon d60... is the tamron 70-300 zoom lens compatible ?


Tamron makes their lenses with a variety of mounts. A lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit a Nikon. Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount then yes, it is compatible with the D60. However, the D60 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Some Tamron lenses have such a motor, some do not. Such lenses will not autofocus with the D60, but everything else still works, including manual focus.

I just purchased my d60 camera, unfortunately I bought it on craigslist, it came with a nikkor 50mm lense, I wanted a auto focus lense to take some sports pictures, I took it to shutterbug camera shop and...


That's odd that Shutterbug camera shop couldn't tell you everything you needed to know about that camera. I looked it up in a PDF manual because the new "small frame" cameras require different lenses as is the case here Autofocus with this camera is only supported by AF-S and AF-I lenses the lens is equipped with the autofocus motor other types of lenses will not autofocus.

The "kit" lens for this camera is the AF-S DX Zoom Nikkor 18-55 F3.5/5.6G VR.

Now if Shutterbug camera shop mounted an AF-S lens and the camera didn't autofocus then they are right in saying it's broke. I just find it strange they couldn't tell you that straight up. You need to install an AF-S lens and try it, again they may have put the wrong type on it and of course it won't work.

I take it that you don't have the camera manual?

If not go into Google search Type in Nikon D60 PDF manual and click search fifth one down on the first page is what you need click on it and download your "new" manual

Here is the link I used

http://www.google.com/#hl=en&sugexp=ldymls&xhr=t&q=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&cp=28&pf=p&sclient=psy&aq=f&aqi=&aql=&oq=Nikon+D60+Digital+PDF+manual&pbx=1&fp=64f84e119f52b91a

See if that helps, personally I think you just need the correct lens.

Buying an SLR digital camera


Hard to tell, but I'd give a slight advantage to the Canon 1000D over the Nikon D60 (closest competitor) for 2 main reasons. The Canon has liveview which the D60 lacks and the Canon is largely backwards compatible with older Canon and third party lenses - so you can get good quality older lenses which will work perfectly with the 1000D. With Nikon on the other hand you need to either buy lenses with internal autofocus motors or you'll be stuck with only manual focus.

Besides that there's not really much difference, since both cameras produce great images and are very similar in features handling and price etc. To sum it all up - I suggest you go with the Canon.

Hope that helps with your decision.

Do all nikon lenses mount the same or are the digital cameras difrent? I own a nikon 6006 camera and want to know if i can use my lenses with the D90 or do I need to get diffrent lenses?


Yes and no. Physically they will all fit (with very rare exceptions, such as the 6mm f/2.8 fisheye).

Most Nikon dSLRs have a sensor that is smaller than a frame of 35mm film. What this means is that you end up using only the central area of each lens. In effect this means that each of your lenses is effectively 1.5 times longer. A 200mm lens on a digital camera will give you the same angle of view a 300mm lens on a film camera gives you. The D3 family and the D700 are the exceptions, behaving similar to a film camera in this respect.

Older Nikon lenses do not have the electronic circuitry necessary to communicate with newer cameras. In the case of the D90, this means that such lenses will not communicate with the camera's exposure meter. They can still be used in Manual mode, but without assistance from the meter. You'll need to move up to a D300 if you want to meter with such lenses.

Bear in mind that lens technology continues to improve every year. Given an old lens and a new lens of similar focal length (or zoom range), the new lens will almost invariably outperform the old one.

Can you fit a sigma fit lens onto a nikon f mount camer. i have some great lenses on my old sd 10 but have gone over to nikon cameras


If the lenses were for the Sigma camera, then unfortunately, they will not fit onto a Nikon camera. Sigma makes lenses for various different mounts; the operative word is "different."

You should check custom menu setting 2, and make sure it's set to one of the auto modes. Make sure the lenses you are using are AF-S and not regular AF lenses. The D60 has no autofocus motor, so autofocus only works with AF-S lenses.

I always suggest folks take a look at Ken Rockwell's website also, here's a link to a specific page on autofocus on the D60.

Post a comment here if none of this works and I'll see what else we can do.

If you are no longer covered by an in-store warranty, whether an extended service or recent sale (typically 30 days) type, going back to Best Buy probably will not help (but asking about it can't hurt).

Nikon Customer Support may be the best place to get the camera repaired, but you'll have to determine if the cost is worth it. If you decide to buy new, be aware that not all Nikon lenses work with all Nikon cameras. Otherwise, if you buy a new Nikon, you'll be able to reuse many of the accessories you currently own for the D60. This can save you a fair amount of money - but make sure your lenses and other accessories will work with the new Nikon model you're planning on buying *first*

Promaster Spectrum 7 Lens


I believe Promaster does not have any lenses with focus motor in the lens, so it will not autofocus with your D60. Their AF versions for Nikon will work with your camera's metering system for proper exposure, but you would have to focus manually.
