I'm enjoying the conversation about how the non-CPU register works. Honestly, it is difficult to imagine the processing software within the camera is not taking account of all the information available to it as it determines how to meter individual images. Granted, the non-CPU register doesn't report fully the information that is available for modern AF lenses. Interesting, Ken's observation that the focal lengths 43 and 86 have no correlation to an prime lenses. I can't imagine they are there simply to give two options for listing what is a rather pedestrian consumer grade lens. That they might be used...Show more →
Curtis ... yes out of curiosity and BOREDOM!
Nikon non-CPU data allows the user to dial in the following focal lengths. Next to each number on my list is a (P) and/or a (Z) indicating the focal length is found on a prime or a zoom lens. This list is compared to Braczko's ** book and as far as my research has taken me. I am sure there are exotics out there and I did not list the CM designated lenses i.e 3.5, 10.5 CM's etc
The sole zoom only FL's in the list are the 25,43,70,86,and 360. the rest as indicated share lens types. I think they are deliberate options by Nikon. Now ... how to use them!
