    No, I'm pretty sure it won't. Your camera is a manual focus one, and the lens is Auto-Focus. Your camera does not have the contacts needed to operate the AF. Now on the other hand, if you were just going to use it in MF mode then maybe. I'll have to test this. I tested it, and the camera will work with an AF lens you just have to focus. I myself would look for a manual focus lens as it should be a cheaper purchase. That is of course if you only have the manual focus camera, if you have both a manual and an auto then go for it.

    Just my 1 1/2 cents worth.

    If you only have the FG, then I wouldn't as it's an AF lens that you would only use in MF mode. Now if you have an auto body, and the manual body then go for it.

    yeah, i would never want to use auto focus, i'd just like to get a 70mm-300mm or similar range. I don't have alot to spend, and i saw this and thought it seemed like a good option.

    Any reccomendations?
