Confusion around lenses.
May 16, 2012

Hi everyone,

So as some of you know already, I am about to purchase a D90 body only. I originally thought I knew what I was doing, but have now ran into a little bit of confusion with lenses.

I'm used to shooting with my Nikkor 18-55mm kit lens, and as this is a DX lens, understand that I am shooting at 18-5mm focal points.

On the D90, I'd be looking at purchasing a 50mm Nikkor 1.8 AF-D lens. From research, it is my conclusion that this would operate more like a 70mm on my D90 as the crop sensor is roughly 1.5x that of a normal sensor, is this correct?

However, beyond that, as the D90 has a Focus Motor built in, I could also use my old lenses from my Nikon F5. With this, I purchased quite an expensive 28-80mm to use with this film camera. What would this equate to when used on my D90?

Thanks,

William
