"using Pre AI nikon lenses on late model Digital bodies."
Hi , does anyone have any experience of successful modification of a Nikkor -H auto 85mm f1.8 lens circa 1972 for use on the Nikon D90? I have just purchased one and my research suggests that it will not be possible for me to use it on my D90.This will not be as catastrophic as I imagined as i can use it on A Canon body with my nikon/EOS adapter but I really wanted to use it for HD video on the D90. Any help/suggestions will be most welcome.

There are shops where you can get pre-AI type lens modified to AI specification so they are safe to use on all Nikon DSLR's. In the USA, John White at www.aiconversions.com does excellent work and charges $25.00 - 35.00 US per lens. There probably is someone in the UK making the modifications as well though I really don't know. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
