Kiron 105mm f2.8 1:1 macro
I have a new D5100 and have an opportunity to purchase this lens.
I know it will not auto focus and that isn't a big issue, but I would want the camera to control aperture or at least recognize the aperture in aperture priority mode and then regulate the shutter speed for a correct exposure.
Does anyone know if this lens is able to interface with the D5100 in that regard or would it be a totally manual situation?

None of the Kiron lenses that I have seen had a CPU or even electrical contacts.
That means 100% manual operation with no metering when mounted on your D5100.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
