MF on D5100: Reliable?
I'm planning to get a Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Lens for my D5100 for portrait photography. I know that Manual focus wont work with this lens. However, I know that when focusing manually, a green dot is visible when the subject is sharp. My question is: how effective and accurate is this mechanism?
On a side note: Does Nikon AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D Lens have an aperture ring? If so, can i manually change focus while recording videos?
