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.
