Re: Pre-Ai Compatibility - One size fits all? D780/NIKKOR-H Auto 28mm f3.5

If anyone is interested, I contacted the expert on this subject, John White, and he confirmed that this lens will work on modern DSLRs, well at least on the subject of this posting, the D780:

"lens can be mounted on D780 since the aperture ring is small enough that it does not interfere with the meter coupling tab on the body."

It just goes to show that common sense prevails over common myths. If the lens installs properly, smoothly, without any hiccups, then it isn't causing any damage.

Obviously for other pre-ai lenses, do your homework first or test at your own risk.
