Nikkor 28mm f2.8 perspective control lens

Does anyone have experience of this lens?
I know the usage of it and I have seen a secondhand mint condition example for a reasonable price. It is completley manual and my query is how could I use it on my D70 ?
I am thinking that I would have to take a seperate meter reading and set this on manual on the camera and also focus manually. What I am not sure about either is will it show me the control effect in the viewfinder .
Any advice would be appreciated.

Lovely lens Mike... I used manual Nikkors on my D70 BUT be very careful attaching it to the body. Some Nikkors will not fit the D70 unless suitably modified as the D70 does not have an AI ring (such as the D200). If you meet ANY resistance when fitting it to the body, don't force it. It means it will need modifying.

This will help as will this (I hope!)
