NIKON D70S

This would be my favorite and the only one digital camera, except one thing. It does not meter light on AI lenses, unfortunately. My copy already shot almost 50 000 pictures. It shows no wear at all, including battery. Design I think that being lightweight and having such a great battery (ie. low power consumption) makes this camera almost perfect one. It allows you to print A4 or event bigger with great quality. It has only 6 megapixels, but this does not count at all. It has CCD sensor and great set of filters atop of it. Pictures you take

NIKKOR 50 f/2

This is one of my favorites. It is a NIKON F mount, AI lens with constant speed at f/2. It is a regular/normal lens. It has no AF, only MF. This copy come from between 1977 and 1979. It is clean inside. Focus and aperture ring operate very well. No visible damages. Performance When it comes to picture quality it has very decent parameters. As it has short focal length, shooting landscapes will be a little bit difficult with cameras below 10 megapixels. You will not be able to resolve too much details. Quite opposite with closeups or midrange targets.

SOLIGOR 70-150 F/3.5 MC

As always I bought it for next to nothing. It is NIKON F mount lens. To be more precise it it a AI lens. No AI-S features. This review will be a little shorter than usually, because the lens is crippled by malfunctioning aperture blades. I can only shoot wide open at f/3.5. Mine has 3 months guarantee so I will not hesitate to send it back. Design It is a telephoto lens which operates by barrel rotation. It says it is MC, but I cannot see anyway. It is an automatic lens, so you can frame picture wide open

VIVITAR 70-210 F/4.5 MC

Together with NIKON 75-150 f/3.5 and SOLIGOR 70-150 f/3.5 I recently purchased this one, which is NIKON F mount VIVITAR 70-210 telephoto lens with constant f/4.5. My main criteria did not change, so it should be reasonably priced and built. I thought that this would be a good one. Now I know that it has some issues. I bought this one with a camera N2000. Unfortunately camera has some issues with leaked batteries, in simple words it was damaged in terms of electronics. Compatibility It is a telephoto zoom lens for NIKON F cameras. To be precise it is AI-S

NIKON 35mm film MF/AF – camera/lens compatibility

As many know, NIKON cameras and lenses have been heavily used by pros in the 1970-1980. They invest a lot in their gear. That is why the compatibility is important. You do not choose only a camera or lens, you choose complete system. If this system keeps backwards compatiblity then you are good to go. With some exceptions… F mount was introduced in 1958. Major upgrade happened in the late 1970s by showing AI type lenses, which pass aperture information to the camera by using mechanical lever. Then, there were minor upgrades like AI-S which one can recognize by having

NIKON 75-150 f/3.5, SERIES E

Recently I have been looking for some old style NIKON F AI MF lenses across the internet. I got this one. It is a discount, costs next to nothing. Of course it’s not only about the money, but about the performance you can get from it. It’s a NIKON F mount, AI-S lens. AI-S has a depressed notch on the mounting ring. AI in general has secondary f-stops markings but more importantly has light-meter coupling. Compatibility I can mount it on my NIKON D200 camera and get both focus confirmation dot in viewfinder as well as proper metering thanks to
