Nikon AF lenses---Are they AIS?

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Ken Rosenbaum, Jul 17, 2003.

  1. If a Nikon AF lens is used on an FA, N2000, or FG, will it work the same
    as an AIS lens and be able to function in shutter-preferred and full program
    modes? Of course, focused manually.
    Conversely, what auto capability does an AIS lens lose when used on an AF
    Nikon like an 8008s or a 6006? Can it be used in shutter-preferred and full
    program mode or not?
    Thanks.

  2. Yes, as long as it's NOT a G series lens. Those won't do you any good with
    any of those cameras.

  3. Yes, all AF lenses are also AI-S. Even the two AF lenses for the
    F3 AF.
    No, it will only work in Aperture priority or manual mode.
    Also, Matrix metering won't work.
