Would this lens work with my D60? Nikon Micro 105mm F4 AI Lens. I don't care if it is a manual focus as I tend to lean more manual focusing anyway.

Thanks.

Hi Mary,

It will work on your D60, with the camera in Manual exposure mode, Manual ISO, and Manual focus mode. Also the D60 does not support metering with non-CPU lenses like the Nikkor 105mm f/4 AI.
You can use the Sunny 16 rule, a hand held Light Meter, or the Trial and Error method using the Histogram to nail the exposure.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Would I have to work in full manual mode or can I still work in aperture priority? If I was to decide to get a light meter do you have any suggestions?

Thanks! M3

Hi Mary,

>in aperture priority?

You must use full Manual control.
See page 146 in the D60 Users Manual

If I was to decide to get a light meter
>do you have any suggestions?

There are Light Meters available in a wide range of price points from the old style needle types to the digital models.
I use a Sekonic L-758DR.
Keep in mind that the D7000, D_ _ series, and D_ series bodies will meter with AI and AI modified lenses in both Manual exposure mode and Aperture Priority mode.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
