"old macro on newer digital body"



I have an old Nikkor 55mm 3.5 AI with PK-13 extension tube. Was originally used on an F3-HP.

Recently I purchased a D7000, would like to use the lens, but as you know the "innards" of this lens are exposed to the camera body when inserted, ie, the threads, grease, etc...so of course I am concerned what may happen if I use this lens with the D7K and possible sensor contamination issues....does anyone here see this as an issue?

Thanks

Rick

Rick,

I have and have used that same lens on D100, 200, 300, D2X and D3 with no problems what so ever. It's one of the sharpest lenses I own.

Hope this helps,

Dave

I've used my 55mm f3.5 on my D7000 without any problems. I looked inside it just now, I don't see any grease on the focusing threads, everything looks clean.

I use a MF55mm f2.8 Micro Nikkor on my D700 and D800 with excellent results and no problem with any contamination (I never had a contamination problem with any of my 30+ Ai and AiS lenses with any of my film Nikons).
