    Am getting confused as to what type of Nikon lenses would be compatible with my D50. I know AF/S works fine and gives autofocus and correct metering, but would an old AI-fit lens also be compatible and give correct metering (but obviously not the autofocus)?

    There seems to be a proliferation of different Nikon fittings and I have not yet succeeded in decoding them!!

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    AI lenses are usable but only in manual mode, metering will not work. Check the manual for a list of what functions work with various lens types. Basically, non-CPU lenses (like the AI) will only work in full manual mode with no metering.

    Thanks for the reply, dsp921. I suspected the metering might be a problem. I would not want to lose that.
