OK!
I see what you mean. It is a big advantage of the "low range" DSLR's. I have a lot of non-AI lenses I have never tried. I have a D2x in the moment and will still keep it when I probably will get a d5200. Maybe prices will raise on non-AI lenses when more and more people finds usage for the old non-AI lenses. They tend to be much cheaper than AI-lenses. So maybe we should not tell anybody
