#15. "RE: My new D5100"
In response to In response to 13

The answer is YES and NO!

The lenses will fit and you can photograph with them but whether they will function identically depends on:
- are they Screwdriver focus or AF-S focus lenses? The former will not autofocus on the D5100 but will on the D50.
- a whole range of issues and questions also apply to lenses manufactured in the 60's, 70's, 80's, and 90's regarding metering.

Let's keep it simple, what lenses do you have?

Best regards, SteveK
