It will work and you can set the aperture but it should be done inside of the camera, not physically. Set the aperture on the orange number and adjust it in aperture priority or manual modes.

Yes, I had a first generation 60 AF and it works in all modes with a D3 that I had as well as my older D2x so it should work fine with your D700.

It will fit on the D60. You will have to use manual focus because the D60 does not have a focus motor in-camera and the 60mm 2.8D is not a SWM lens. You should consider the AF-S model 60mm 2.8G as auto-focus will work fast and accurate and its not much more in cost.

Question

Controlling aperture size using D5000 body

Hi all. I just got a AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D and I've put it on my D5000 body. I've been impressed with the lens so far, but some of my shots were a bit overexposed, which prompted me to want to change the aperture size. There is an option to manually switch between different f-stops on the lens, but when I did this, the camera yelled at me saying that the manual setting must remain locked into f-stop = 32. I haven't fiddled around with it much yet, but after the camera's reprimand, I then assumed that the body of the camera would control aperture size (either automatically, or through my manual settings). Is this correct? Will the camera body control the f-stop, or will all my pictures be in f-stop = 32 with this lens/body combo? Thanks for any help!

Lock the lens at F/32 and let the camera control the aperture. The only time you would use the aperture ring would be on an older 35mm body, in other words an old film camera.

The aperture needs to be set on the camera body, that is why you need to keep the lens locked at the minimum aperture.

Is the AF-S 2.8 60mm lens worth the added cost?

I am thinking of buying a 2.8 60mm lens and am wondering if the increased cost to buy an AF-S lens is worth the added cost. I understand the AF-S is quieter and "smoother," but would I notice any difference in photo quality?

answer 2
Nikon offers two types of autofocus digital camera bodies: those with a built-in focus drive motor and those which require a lens to have a motor. Cameras such as the D3100 do not have a focus motor in it so they require the lens to have the focusing motor – an “AF-S” lens. While these bodies can use a lens with no focus motor (an “AF” lens) you would have to manually turn the focus ring to bring the subject in to sharp focus.

Full gives you the full focusing range. LIMIT will restrict focus to distances in the vicinity of 0.3 m to 0.219 m (1 ft. to 0.72 ft.), while selecting LIMIT at longer focus distances will restrict focus to positions between approximately 0.3 m (1 ft.) and ∞.

When using the AF Micro-Nikkor 60mm f/2.8D Lens on a DSLR the aperture is controlled by the camera instead of by the aperture ring. Turn the lens aperture ring to its minimum setting (highest f-number), then lock it in place using the aperture lock on the lens. You can then fully control the lens aperture on the D3000, D5500, and other DSLRs by using the dials on the camera - see page 70 of the D3000 Reference Manual for detailed instructions. FYI this lens will not autofocus on the D3000 or the D5500 as neither camera has a built-in focus motor. AF-S or AF-I lenses are required to autofocus on these cameras.
