    Help….!
    I have a Nikon 50mm 1.4 manual focus and it work well with my F3. I just tried using it with my D70 and focusing is less than satisfactory. I am manually focusing, but all of the shots were fuzzy…out of focus. What am I doing wrong????

    As suggested.....a tripod makes the difference.

    It is very hard to get the blue focusing dot to hold still when handhold shooting.

    Thanks all

    I'm guessing that the viewfinder is a bit smaller and dimmer on the D70, which will make it harder to see your focus point. The lens should focus fine on either though. It's just a matter of being able to see it.

    Well that's pretty bad as I am thinking of ordering the same lens. Waiting for the solution.
