My opteka zoom lens is not recognized by my Nikon d300


First, make sure that you have the right adapter to couple this lens to your Nikon. A universal adapter may actually fit and properly click into place but the electrical contacts may not match your Nikon. Make sure the electrical contacts on the adapter match the contacts on the camera body.

If they don't match, get an adapter specifically for Nikon and perhaps, specifically for your camera.

Once you have verified that it is a Nikon adapter, you need to make sure the electrical contacts between the adapter and the camera body are clean. Many people clean the contacts by holding the lens release button down and twisting the lens or in this case, the adapter, on and off ten or more times.

If neither of these options work you may need to contact Opteka, Nikon or both.

I have a Nikon D 5100 and I want to attach an Opteka 650 - 1300 mm HD lens. I want to know how to do this?


The same way you attach any other lens to the camera. See the instructions in the "Attach a Lens" section of the camera manual (page 17 in my copy).
Be aware that this lens lacks the electronics to communicate with the camera. You will have to shoot in the Manual exposure mode, setting both the shutter speed and aperture yourself. You also will not get any exposure help from the camera's meter.

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.

Will a Nikon Sigma 70-210 work on my nikon D60??


Assuming the lens has a Nikon mount, then it will fit and work on the D60. Sigma makes lenses for a variety of cameras; a lens with a Canon mount, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon camera. However, the 70-210 is a rather old lens. Unless it specifies "HSM" it will not autofocus on the D60. The D60 does not have an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Nikon calls such lenses "AF-S" while Sigma designates theirs "HSM".

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.

Can I use a Kenko Lens with a Nikon D60?


If it's an AF teleconverter you will be able to use it and get proper exposure from the camera, but it will not autofocus with the D60. The D60 requires AF-S lenses and teleconverters for autofocus.

You can use it, but it will not autofocus on your D60. It will set exposure properly, but you will have to turn the focus ring.
