"Specialty Lens"


CASSELBERRY, US
          

Was doing some browsing for lens and came across this. Was wonder if this kit will work on the D5000. It says it will work on Nikon F cameras.

The idea of what this kit does is pretty cool and for 4 lens for $240.00 is pretty cheap even if they are slow glass. Most of my photography is still and outdoors anyways.

Hi Jeremy,

The kit you provided a link to is designed to work with the camera included in the kit and will not work with your D5000!
Accessory lenses that attach via the filter ring are usually of very poor quality and I am sure you would be very unhappy with their performance.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

A good possibility to burn its money.

No metering, no CLS nor autofocus. Nothing.
Makes not really sense for me.

Those aren't just any accessories. Those are for the Diana camera, which has developed a cult reputation for emphasizing the art. Of photography through seriously poor optical quality. Like the Holga (which has a plastic meniscus lens)' these are wa y off the beaten path, and unless you're sure that you want one of THEM, you don't.

The lenses of the Nikon F will not work on any Nikon dSLR out of the box!

Any Pre-AI lens needs physical modification to fit the new couplings.

Yes the Nikon F mount is physically the same size. There are also issues regarding the exit pupil extending into the mirror box and the stop down lever.

I would not place any lens on a Nikon dSLR unless it is identified as being usable by the camera.

'Notes on digital cameras:
Non-AI lenses must be converted before they can be used on any digital body (except the D40, D40X, D60 and D5000).' AI Compatibility Table John White

The above statement has not been updated for the newer Nikon dSLRs, but the adjustments needed for the older Nikon dSLRs are still needed for the newer Nikon dSLRS.

The Nikon F camera is different from Nikon dSLRs and many other Nikon film SLR cameras. And lenses that work on the Nikon F may need modifications to work on other Nikon SLR cameras. Note the the Nikon F has the fork for the AI connection to the Photonic head and this fork will prevent the mounting of the lens on other newer Nikon SLR bodies. And that is the simplist modification.
