The D5000 cannot autofocus with this lens because neither the camera nor the lens have a focus motor. Please read the article in the link below to find out what lenses are right for your DSLR.

Hi Scott, there is nothing you are doing wrong. In order for a DSLR to Autofocus with a lens, either the camera or the lens needs to have a built in autofocus motor. Neither the D5200 nor this lens have a built in focus motor, and therefore autofocus is not possible. Auto focus is only possible when AF-S or AF-I lenses which have built in autofocus motor are used with the D5200.

You need lenses designated AF-S or the older AF-I both have focus motors.

AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D will work with the D3100. Please remember that the AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D is an FX lens and the D3100 is a DX sensor. This lens will not autofocus with the camera because the lens and the camera do not have autofocus motors. The lens would have to be manually focused.

Will the lens be detected by my D3200?

Could I use this lens outside of manual mode? I understand that I will need to manually focus, but I'd like to be able to see if my image is properly exposed before I take the picture.
