    Is it possible to use my Tamron 90mm f2.5 lens
    on a Nikon D70s digital body, if I can find a Nikon adapter
    ring for the Tamron lens.

    Previously I used the Tamron lens on my
    Pentax 35mm film bodies.

    Thank you in advance.

    With 35 mm film cameras when you purchased
    a Tamron 90mm f2.5 lens you got the adapter
    which was a seperate part for whatever make
    of camera body you had. Nikon,Cannon, Pentax etc.

  3. B&H used to sell Adaptall 2 Tamron-Nikon AIS
    mounts for around $25. With it, the lens will mount
    and operate properly (except for AF and metering
    and auto-exposure modes), as if it were an MF AI
    Nikkor. If you use TTL flash in your macro work,
    exposure is also taken care of...

  4. Nope, TTL flash is an "auto-exposure mode", and hence won't work on that
    body with non-chipped lenses.

    But a test shot or two and some examination of the histogram gives you
    *much* more information anyway, so except for certain kinds of
    fast-moving situations, no problem.

  5. Then things have really changed (not for the better...)
    with digital bodies. So, how 'bout using the flash in
    auto mode, inputing the actual (or calculated, for
    macro) f-stop on the flash...? ;-) This bypasses the
    ambient light exposure entirely, assuming that is set
    far enough under the flash exposure (and one can
    take the look of flash...;-).
