question

I have a Nikon D7100 that has a motor built in. Can it autofocus this lens even though it is a manual focus lens?
Asked by: Anonymous
No it cannot. The D7100 requires that the lenses be designed to be focused automatically (aka Autofocus lenses). A lens such as this which is designated as a manual focus only lens cannot be autofocused even if the camera has an autofocus engine in it. That is one of the reasons this lens is as affordable as it is.
