Hello everyone,
New to the forum & newbie photographer too, kindly bear with my ignorance. I am planning to buy a Rokinon 8mm http://goo.gl/zJIP2 to use with my Nikon D5100. I have read the reviews of the lens & some sample pictures and it looks best value for money. I have never used a manual lens with my Nikon. There are 2 versions of this lens on Amazon, one with Auto Exposure & Aperture and one without. Is there a major difference between the two versions.
I am used to my kit lens & 50mm and never used a third party or manual lenses. I read that with non AF lenses D5100 doesn't meter. Is is that true? How to get over this problem?
Thanks in advance,
Raghav
