    Hi folks,

    wife just bought this for me.... obviously I would prefer better, but this is our budget, so constructive advice for this lens only please Smile

    Soooooo, it has just come through the post today, so I thought I;d check it out quickly.

    The autofocus works fine (I'm using it with a nikon d1x).

    For manual focussing, which I prefer, .......... how do I go about it? and how does it change from wide to macro ?

    sounds daft, but it's so much different from my nikkor lenses, that I need a bit of input.

    Thanks in advance...much appreciated.

    Gareth

    If the lens is new - you could start with the lens instructions Smile
    If the lens has an AF/manual focus selector - set it to the appropriate position. If the lens is AF only setting the D1x focus selector (side of the bayonet mount) to manual focus and turning the lens focus ring should work.
    If the lens has a separate macro facility there will be a switch on the lens to set it. If it does not have a macro mode you can get no closer than normal minimum focus allows unless you buy a close lens attachment or extension tubes.

    Hi there!

    I'm thinking of bying the same lens for shooting street photography with a Nikon D70. Will AF and metering(this concerns me most) work on my camera?

    Yes. There should be no problem at all.

    With a super-wide angle, the depth of field is huge when you stop down a bit. Manual focussing then means you only need do it once a year GrinGrinGrin
