"Nikkor lenses circa 1970-74 & D70"



Hello to everybody. Just joined & am glad to be aboard. I bought my F body & 135mm lens in NYC in 1970 & my 28mm,55mm,& 43mm-86mm in Japan in 1974. Will these operate with the D70 ? Is a conversion needed ?Hope to join the digital age. Thanks. Scott.

I'm pretty sure these will work IF they are converted to ai-p lenses. I'm sure someone else will know more than me.

I don't know about the likelihood of these lenses being converted to AI-P. As far as I know, some manual focus lenses of the AI/AIS variety have some opportunity to have matrix-metering chips installed; thereby making them able to TTL meter with modern bodies like the N80/D100. AI/AIS lenses are usable without modifications with the F100/F5/D1 series/D2 series. I have not heard of any AI-P conversions being available.

Thank you for your reply. A year or so ago, I was told by the Nikon company that the John White Co., of Ann Arbor,Mich. does lens conversions. If I recall correctly: aiconversions.com. I will keep on investigating. Thanks again, Scott.

If you can get the lenses converted to AI, they will mount on the D70, but you can only use them in unmetered manual mode. In order to use metering or any auto-exposure mode, you would have to get a chip added as well, effectively converting the lens from AI to AI-P.
