I originally planned on buying a Nikon D90 and the 50mm 1.4D lens.  By the time I was ready to buy it, the D7000 came out.

I bought the D7000 and it came with the kit lens 18-105mm 3.5-5.6G.

I have a love/hate relationship with that lens.  I am still learning to use my D7000. It was the first Nikon camera and the first DSLR camera I have owned…well, own.

My question, Oksana, or anyone…is….will the 50mm1.4D lens work on the D7000?

I saw that your camera had that exact lens on it on the Sunny 16 video, but I could not tell which camera you were using.


If it will work, please let me know what limitations it has.  

If it does not work, then please advise.  I do not care for the photos I have seen with the 50mm1.4G.  

My daughter has the 50mm1.8G, and I am leaning towards that.


Or….would it be better to get a 35mm?  I want to be able to take photos in low light with no flash.

I found the answer….I dug out my book and it said all D lenses are compatible.  Not sure why some places I looked at said that it was not compatible and others said yes.  Perhaps I had a different lens by mistake.


Looking forward to finishing the videos and possible doing the classes.

ALL Nikon AF lenses will autofocus on the D7x00 cameras.

The cause of the confusion is that only Nikon AF-S lenses will autofocus on the D3x00 and D5x00 cameras.

The reason is that the D7x00 cameras have a focusing motor built in to the body while the D3x00 and D5x00 cameras don’t and depend on the lens having a built in focusing motor.


As far as the 50mm lenses are concerned you should consider the 50mm f/1.8 as well as the 50mm f/1.4.  There is only half of a stop difference when wide open and if you can forego that half a stop you can save quite a bit.
