Older Lens Compatibility with Nikon D7100
9 months ago

I have two lenses for an older 35mm Nikon camera (6006).  One of these is the 75-300mm AF Zoom Nikkor lense, which was always a favorite to use.  Can anyone tell me if this lens is compatible with the newer DSLR cameras, specifically the D7100 which is on my current short list for a new camera.

If its the AF zoom from nikon , then you should have no problems at all.  The 7100 is compatible with most Nikon lenses from Ai, Ais , Screw drive AF and the new AF lenses.

All lenses that is compatible with your old camera, is also compatible with D7100.

Thanks for the information.  Does that mean the stabilization of the D7100 will work correctly as well?  As you can tell, I am not an expert.  But being able to use my older lenses will allow me to buy the body only plus I got some great shots with my older lenses although the zoom is quite heavy because it is all metal.

Stabilization is on the lens, not the body.

Do you need 24 megapix? The more pixels, the tougher it will be to produce nice IQ with the older esp slower lenses. I just bought a D7000 with 16 megapix....just a thought.

It will work but it might not be your favorite anymore; that's an old design and won't be real sharp on a D7100, which has a smaller sensor than a 35mm film camera.
