Hi there everybody , new to the site and have a question to ask about lens compatibility.

I have a Nikon N60 which I have had for nearly 2 years and when I got it it came with Quantary lenses . I know these lenses are cheapies but I have had a great time with them and gotten some pretty decent photos.

I have now decided to step up and buy a new Nikon lens and pretty much have my heart set on the AF Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 D , having read sevral reviews by Staff photographers in magazines etc and spoken to a few other Nikon users .

My question is this .

I am getting conflicting information as to wether I will be able to use all the features of the 28mm with my Nikon N60 . For instance in my N60 Manual it says " D-type AF lenses give you access to all available functions " .

Yet the Nikon website says ....

"Nikon D-type lens technology provides distance information to Nikon F5, N90s,N90, N70 and N50 cameras, making 3D Matrix Metering and Matrix Balanced Fill-Flash possible."

...but no mention of the N60 in there.

Call me fussy but I dont want to spend the $ 200 or so if I wont be able to use all the features of the lens.

Anybody help me out here ? Depending on the answer I may just wait untill the Summer when I plan to upgrade to the N80 .
