"Lenses"



Can the lenses I have for my N60 work on the digital cameras? My current lenses are a Sigma 28-80mm D, and a Tameron 80-210 CF, TELE, Macro Lense. I am looking at a D5000, with F mount. will this work?

They'll work, in that they will meter and take pictures. However, they won't auto focus, because those lenses require that the camera's motor drive the focus. Unfortunately the D5000 doesn't have a focus motor - its design relies on a motor in the lens, which these don't have either.
