Yes it will work as it is not a DX lens, even if it were DX you would have crop mode to be able to use it.

There are some problems with the auto focus with this lens and the D7000. It has a lot of trouble focusing on subjects that are initially far out of focus. You can manually adjust the focus near the subject, then use auto focus to get it right though. It's very strange.

Question

When used with DX format cameras would this lens be equivalint to a Micro DX 90mm lens

Can (all) AF-S G model lens Optimized for FX-format also work on the APS-C DX-format cameras and instead of being 1:1 they become 1:1.5 in focal length, like a FX 100mm lens would become a 150mm when used with DX-format cameras, does that sound correct?

Or is there a different formula to find the difference?

Also this lens with f2.8G max aperture does it loose a little of the aperture when used with the DX-format camera since the camera has a smaller sensor, is the DX-format sensor able to take advantage of the lenses widest opening?

The short answer is, yes. You are correct on the focal length issue. Any FX lens will 'act' like it is 1.5x larger when used on a DX camera.

There is no aperture penalty for this; f/2.8 (coupled with the same shutter speed and ISO) will produce the same exposure on the FX and DX cameras. Yes, you can use the widest aperture on both cameras equally.

The reason for this apparent increase in focal length is that the FX sensor is 1.5x bigger than the DX sensor. The FX lens is designed to produce an image that will cover the FX sensor, and when you use this lens with a DX sensor, you use only the center portion of the image.

You would get exactly the same effect by using an FX camera and cropping the center area out of it. The image would 'appear' to be 1.5x closer because of the cropping.

To continue the camparison of the DX and FX image when using an FX lens on both, you have to also consider resolution. If a DX camera and FX camera have the same number of pixels, and you crop out the center portion of the DX image to make the same field of coverage, then the DX image will have more resolution. Some people discuss this by how many pixels you are putting on the subject.

Lastly, there is the issue of depth of field. You will see a greater depth of field than when an FX is used on a DX sensor than when the same lens is used on an FX camera. However, if you crop the image from the FX camera to make the same field of coverage as the DX camera, the depth of field will be the same.

Please re-clarify: Is the manufacture location exclusively Japan? If I order online, are there lenses made Japan and Thailand?

I've noticed at online show and tell videos that this lens has a "Made in Thailand" and others with "Made in Japan" labels. Are there lenses on the market (as of 14 Nov 2012) made at both locations?
