Nikon camera's

Postby Norsky » Tue May 04, 2010 7:56 pm

The wife has a Nikon N65 camera with a couple of lenses. Is it possible to get a newer digital body that uses these lenses? If so what ones? Thanks, Dave

Don't know about the N65 but we had an older film N80 that the lenses converted to our D70 digital camera.

most nikon lenses do transfer over to newer models but you could loose some functions, such as auto focus or some of the automatic settings on your digital camera that make better pictures possible.

your best bet would be to pull the specs of of the digital camera body your looking at and look at the compatible lenses and see if the specs of your lens match up.

good luck :thumbsup:

Thanks for the reply. It has been a while but the wife ended up getting the D90. The older Nikor lenses do work and like you said it does not have the stabilizer in the the lens. They told us there is a stabilizer in the body of the new one as well as the new digital lenses. Dave

D90 is a great camera and you will really enjoy what it has to offer.

the line of nikon lenses is impressive and they do work great I have an AS-F VR 70-200mm f/2.8 lens that has been my workhorse in most of my fast paced low light duck hunting and sports photography. Any lens that allows you to keep your f-stops low and give you the full zoom range of the lens is great for the type of shooting that duck hunting demands. teh problem is the price..... :no:

IF your looking for new lenses to add to your lineup be sure to look into sigma lenses as they are great quality lens that is SUBSTANTIALLY less expensive than any new nikon lens.
