I wouldn't mind Ben's 24 PC-E
He'd probably have his hands full with Nikki when she returns

The confirmation dot works with both AI and AI-s lenses, as well as pre-AI lenses that have been converted. What you'll likely appreciate most is the fact that the non-CPU register allows you to note the focal length and widest aperture so the camera will meter with the lenses. The only thing you need to know is that if you spot meter you need to use the center focusing point.

I made the move to Nikon with a brief exploration that turned into a switch when I discovered these beautiful old lenses. Folks who've following this thread pretty much know the

Sorry I'm late to this conversation but thought I would add that I cheated with my D300 / D700 and installed a third party split prism focus screen to aid in focusing as I find using the "dot" annoying and it is a carry over from my F body. My question for Nikon is why did you limit the non-CPU lens entries to only 9? I got way more than that.

I know what you mean, maybe someone can come up with a hack to fix this.

Very nice series Tony. I like these two the best.

Everyone on this thread that responds to this 9 lens limit probably has a bad case of NMFAS, or if not, will soon.

I picked this 28mm 3.5 AI up from the original owner for the wifes D7000. Bjorn's review is very high on this lens on the crop cameras. It came with the original accessory leather case and you can see it is in mint condition. We went up to Longwood for some good places to try it out.. Turns out Bjorn is more than correct. She loves this lens and so do I.

I too lament the 9 lens limit - it would have been trivial to make it 50 or some huge number like that!
They probably just want us to buy new shiny AF lenses instead . . .

I have 7 now that I have installed the CPU chip on. It is sooooooooooooo nice to stick the lens on and shoot and not fool with the menu everytime you take one off and put another on. In the end I will reserve the 9 slots for lenses that can not be chipped such as the 50 1.2 or a lens that I may be considered crazy for whacking the baffle on such as the 200-400.

I don't know if anyone is following the D7100 vs D600 thread but I found this interesting.

Any thoughts?

Hrm, I think chipping is probably the best way to avoid the 9 lens limit as chipping many of the lenses is a straightforward procedure. One other which obviously isn't ideal is to reserve a spot or two for lesser used lenses and just change the data if you want to take them out. I had 10 at one time which and employed the second strategy. I'm selling off those that I don't use though, and am back below 9 now...

Or... shiny new cameras to hold more spots for more MF lenses. This D700 with these MF lenses, this D3 with this bunch over here....
