D200 provides touch of class for old glass
Nikonians entering the digital single lens reflex arena with the D200 have heard great promises regarding their collection of older lenses.
Nikonian Darrell Young shows how to do take advantage of those promises with his article Nikon D200 and Non-CPU lenses, now available through our Resources at Nikonians®.
Darrell walks you step-by-step through the proper settings for both the camera and your older manual lenses, and explains the logic behind each setting. He also provides views of your D200 displays as well as some key mechanical differences between specific lens types.
This article complements his previous guide: Nikon D2X - Using non-CPU lenses and acknowledges the obvious fact that "your old favorite lenses can't electronically communicate with the new bodies."
Both articles urge you to "dust off" your older lenses, pick your favorites, and then do some homework to make sure you can take advantage of their specific qualities with your new digital SLR.
Darrell not only shows you how to do it, but also explains the reasons behind his advice.
