Being a hardware design engineer i cannot imagine the reason that Nikon could not switch the motor type in some new lenses (AF-P type) and not keep compatibility with older cameras. I am not familiar with the electrical connections they use in the mount, but i assume they use a few pins (4 maybe) to keep compatibility with AF type lenses where the lens just reports focal length to the camera.

Hello, I currently own Nikon D3000 and the following lenses: kit 18-55mm VR AF-s DX + Nikon 55-200 VR. I want to purchase a new camera in about 5-6 months, but I'm not sure which path to take.

Hi all, I like to do low light photography mainly landscapes. I currently have a Nikon D3000 which is a few years old. I find it difficult to focus and compose in low light and if the camera has to be set out at a low level as i cannot get a good view through the view finder. I am looking for a nikon with a fold out screen where I can have live view . D 3000 has neither. I was looking at the D5500 and the d500. any suggestions? also can I use the lenses i use now with the D3000? thanks raj
