The 18-55 vr, 55-200 vr and 70-300 are all G lenses and as such need a the thumbwheel on the body to control aperture. The 50/1.8 if its a d lens with aperture ring should be fine. All these lenses will mount without issue on the fm10 since they are all f mount and you *could* use the g lenses on the fm10 but you would be sorely limited.

Hi Charley,

I've got an N80 with the MB-16 attached you can have. It will work with your lenses. Here's the rub. When you're done with it, pass it on to someone else on this forum who is going to school, looking for a film camera for class, and posted a similar request.

PM your addy, and it's yours.

Hi.

Great idea with the N80.

The 18-55 and 55-200 are DX-lenses, so they will not work properly with a film (= FX) camera. You will experience heavy vignetting due to their design for crop-sensor cameras.

The 50 and the 70-300 will be fine.

Regards

Wow! Roger, that's a sweet deal! N80 is a super camera. Charlie, you will be the envy of your class! It's great that you are taking a film class. Let us know how it goes for you, please!

55-200 is not bad

Actually, according to some test I did, the 55-200 can work pretty decent on the N80. (I bought N80 from KEH recently). Any DX that is shorter zoom probably has more problems. Another exception I found is the 35mm G 1.8 worked pretty well also. I know it is DX, but still pics looked pretty good and I have seen others using them on D700 with some success.

I did pick up a cheap 28-80 zoom which was common kit lens on these types of cameras and that is what I use mostly today. I just use the film camera for fun and don't shoot a lot of volume, as that can get expensive these days. My only point is test the lens for yourself and you may find the longer focal lengths can be used to get you some reach. The wider end is where the DX lenses will definitly start viginetting and waste film.
