Hi All,

I have a chance to purchase a used Tamron 300mm 2.8 with the adaptall converter which is an AI mount for Nikon. Obviously it is not autofocus but will this lens work with a Nikon D70 digital ? I'm worried that TTL metering won't work. I know that there are experts out there who know more about this than I do so I'm looking for a little help. Thanks in advance for your reply.

Best regards,
Tom

You are correct - the metering & AF will not work with the D70. You will need to use a light meter or use another camera or lens to meter. The D1 & D2 series cameras will meter OK with the MF lenses.
