A:AnswerNikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3000 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.
A:AnswerThe AF NIKKOR 20mm f/2.8 D Lens will not autofocus on the D5100 but is otherwise compatible. For a lens that will autofocus on the D5100 look for lenses the AF-S designation like the AF-S NIKKOR 20mm f/1.8G ED Lens or the AF-S NIKKOR 50mm f/1.8G Lens. The D5100 does not have a built-in focus motor, so lenses that have focus motors are needed for autofocus. AF-S lenses feature Nikon’s silent-wave autofocus motor. Older AF-I lenses will also autofocus on the D5100.
A:AnswerThe Nikon AF Nikkor 20mm f/2.8D will work with the Nikon D3200, however,it will have to be manually focused as this camera body does not have a built-in autofocus motor. This compact and lightweight lens provides excellent low light performance for dimly lit interiors and is perfect for site to site travel.
