    I have the opportunity to buy a Nikon Mount MC Kiron Lens 70-200 mm with macro

    I realize this is an old lens, but I was told that old lens' work on the new cameras, but they have to use manual focus... which is fine, cause thats what i use...

    will this lens work with my camera?

    You can make it work, yes. Metering is going to be interesting.

    I suggest you bone up on the sunny 16 rule. And get a hand held meter.

    I own a Kiron 28-105mm that I really enjoy, I really like the color rendition (I don't shoot it in bright daylight though). Ymmv. Don't expect it to be something that it isn't and you will enjoy it.
