Hello all,

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum to post in, but here goes..

I have a Vivitar 90-180 mm f/4.5 macro zoom. Unfortunately, it is the non-AI mount. What are my options for using this on a D200? I presently have it mounted on a Nikon FM, as that body will handle the lens, with stop-down metering.

If I found a junk AI version of this lens, could I swap the mounts?

Thanks for any ideas.
