Opinions on using AI and pre-AI lenses on DF
Feb 18, 2014

I have been using older AI and pre-AI Nikkor lenses with my DF and I am really happy with the results. I have even used what many say is a poor quality AI zoom Nikkor lens (35-70 f3.3-f4.5) with my DF and the files look very very good at anything above f4.5). I had read that this lens was one of Nikon's worst lenses. This camera and it's sensor works perfectly with these older lenses. The sensor seems to be very 'forgiving'. Anyone else finding this as well?
