"Is this lens compatible with the D50 body?"


FI
          

After many years sitting in the back of the cupboard I've finally started using my D50 again. I've had lots of fun shooting portraits with a 50mm prime lens, all of which look surprisingly pretty given the age (and I'm sorry to say, neglect) of this camera body.

I've decided I need to purchase a landscape lens, and have the Tokina 11-16mm in mind. Before forking out the cash on Amazon, though, I need to be 100% sure that it is compatible. From my research I believe it is, but the requirements when it comes to needing an autofocus motor always stump me. Am I correct in assuming that this lens will autofocus on the D50 camera body?

Tokina AT-X PRO 11-16mm F2.8 DX Lens - Nikon AF Mount

Thanks.

Hi Sarah,

Welcome to Nikonians!
Yes it will.
The D50 has an AF motor built into the camera body and fully supports All Nikon F mount AF lenses including those made by third parties with the exception of the Nikkor 80mm t/2.8 and 200mm f/3.5 made for the Nikon F3AF.

I can only speak for the quality of Tokina, I'm not a D50 user but have owned 2 other Tokina lenses, a 12-24, a 100 macro ATX pro and just Yesterday ordered my third the 16-28 2.8. Tokina makes a wonderful piece of glass.IUf It fits, and I suspect it will, you will not be disappointed

The Tokina 11-16mm lens was a direct competitor to the Sigma EX 10-20mm f4-5.6DC HSM lens which is also a good choice and will work well on the D50.
I use this Sigma lens on my D70 with very good results.
