I recently purchased my very first digital camera -- a D5100. I've been having a great deal of fun with it and I've sadly shelved my N2020 which has served me with perfect performance for 25 years. When Kodak stopped production of Kodachrome, I began to think about making the step to digital photography and here I am.

So, to the point. One of my favorite old lenses is a Nikkor 55mm f/3.5 Maco with M2 Ring. It was converted to AI and mounts on my D5100 fine, but of course without any automatic features. I've had good success working with it in the D5100, but I am uncertain if I can also mount it with the M2 Ring.

Can I mount this lens with the M2 Ring attached? I haven't found documentation that is clear enough for me to trust. I don't want to do something stupid and ruin my lovely new D5100.

Thanks in advance for help y'all.
