Old manual Nikkor f/1.2 with a D60?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Electromen, Jul 4, 2008.

  1. A friend has an old 50 or maybe 55mm f/1.2 manual Nikkor from the '60s. He wants to buy a D60 and use it. Will it work?

    The D60 does not have the AI tab in the mount which prevents the use of pre-AI lenses on D300 for example. So, that lens would mount without difficulty on the D60 regardless if it is AIS, AI or even older pre-AI lens. There won't be any metering functions though, so he'd either need to use a external meter or the camera histogram.

    Being from the 60's it might very well be a pre-AI lens.
  3. thanks, I'll forward that info.

    the D60 is perfect for using manual focus lenses! it has a focus level indicator bar for focusing and a histogram for manual metering.
