#18. "RE: Nikon D3000"
In response to In response to 17

I bought a D3000 a couple of weeks ago as a smaller companion for my D300, I got if from Cameta via Ebay so I could get only the body as I have no need for the kit lens right now.

>I have just bought a new D3000 today for replacing my F90.I
>have a new Sigma 70-300mm APO Macro zoom and the autofocus
>does not work with the D3000,but does all other functions work
>well like metering etc?

I just tried mine with my Sigma 28-105D which is probably of a similar vintage to your 70-300 (I bought it to go with my N90s), and while autofocus does not work the focus indicator in the viewfinder does (the green dot lower left when the lens is focused), also all of the metering modes appear to work fine too.

What problems are you seeing in low light? I took mine trick or treating last night and managed to get some pretty good shots using only it and the 18-70 AF-S kit lens from a D70.
