"RE: Film SLR Lenses on DSLR"

Hi Lind,

The D5100 light meter will not work with any MF lens without a CPU chip so you must set the camera in Manual exposure mode and Manual ISO. Then set the aperture using the aperture ring on the lens.
You can use a handheld light meter, the Sunny 16 rule, or the trial and error method using the histogram to set the correct exposure.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
