"Using AI lenses on D5000"


US
          

Trying to decide on a purchase, I've been reading all I can about the D5000. By its specs, it seems pretty close to ideal for my application (relatively inexpensive DSLR that can use my old Nikkors for timelapse photography).

The recall that has been discussed bothers me, of course.

The other cause for concern is whether using my old AI Nikkors will be problematic. Thom noted that the camera can use a wide range of Nikkors. But on dpreview, I saw a chart that says non-CPU lenses "Can be used in mode M, but exposure meter does not function; electronic range finder can be used if maximum aperture is f/5.6 or faster."

I'm having a hard time understanding "exposure meter does not function" as well as the term "electronic range finder."

Could someone please explain these terms to me? And, if someone has put his/her old AI lenses on a D5000, how is the experience?

Thanks!

Bob C
