exactly, I'm using my super sharp 28mm F2.8 and it works like a charm. Manual focus but the camera tells me when I'm in focus and it shows the right aperture simply setting the maximum. Really cool.

There's really no trick involved. Nikon provides the capability to attach AI/AI-S lenses, as long as you program them in the Non-CPU lens menu. Just enter the minimum f-stop and focal length. Check pp. 212 and 371 in the manual.

I've used my 24mm and 50mm AI-S lenses on my D700 without any problems, except vignetting when I use them wide open.

Cheers,
Mike
