Yes, if one uses a Nikon FTZ adapter with the Nikon Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8 Lens connected, the lens will work in a manual mode, with manual focusing and manual F stop control.

question

Is it possible to take photographs of 35mm slides using this 105mm lens (1:2) and a DX format camera? Will the entire 35mm slide fill the DX sensor or will I lose part of the original image or get an external frame around the image? Or should I use a 1:1 lens (105mm) or yet another lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
I recommend sending your 35mm slides to a professional with a high quality scanner to get them digitized.

question

Is this the D or G lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
This pre-dates the D & G lenses but to categorize it, it would fall under the D category as it has a manually adjustable aperture ring.
