Re: Explain this! (Adapted lenses)

I am not sure who told you that you can't use old glass on the 5100 but they were just wrong. I use both pre-Ai and ais lenses in my d5200 on a regular basis. The rules about focal length still apply though since that has to do with the image sensor. Lenses that can meter old glass like the 7100 need Ai or ais lenses, but non metering cameras can use anything except for invasive fisheye lenses.
