What body do you have? I have someAIS lenses...it seems logical that I could enter some type of data and get TTL metering but I don't know how...actually, I thought it was not possible. I have a D90.
Im going to sound like a complete noob here but what is the difference between ais and cpu? I dont really look into lenses much i cant afford them.
So what do you do if you have a zoom ais lens? How do you program the focal length into the camera?
Rich don't feel bad, I have done that more often then I'd like to admit. Is there a way of editing the EXIF data?
In the earlier cameras(D2, etc) they had a spot in the menu for every listed focal length. The limitation to 9 was moronic and unwarranted. -KB-Even monkeys fall out of tree's.:tongue:
It's a pain to set my Nikkor AIS glass data into the D3. But I generally remember. Why they only have room for 9 lenses at a time makes about as much sense as not being about to set my Nkkor 300 2.0 with a 1.4 at 420mm. It goes from 300, 360 400 500 ? It's funny they have so much other stuff on the camera which I never use(AF) It would be nice to be able to program the real focal length in. However the good part is when Im in Aperture priority having the wrong setting dosnt seem to make much difference in exposer.
D700. The d90 will not meter with non CPU lenses. The D300 and above will. In the Set Up Menu, under Non CPU Lenses, you enter the focal length and minimum f-stop. You then have to remember to select that lens in the menu when you mount it.
