Old 70-300 Nikkor seems to be more like 105-450mm on DX body?
4 months ago

Today I tried some of my old film SLR lenses on my D5200 and they seem to have more focal reach. Is this correct?  An old 70-300 Nikkor seems to be more like 105-450mm on my DX body!  The old lenses don't have an AF motor so have to be manually focused.  I was just curious how they might perform on the DX body even manually focused.
