Compatible CPU lenses

CPU lenses (particularly types G and D) are recommended, but note that IX-NIKKOR lenses can not be used. CPU lenses can be identified by the presence of CPU contacts, type G and D lenses by a letter on the lens barrel. Type G lenses are not equipped with a lens aperture ring. The maximum aperture of the lens is given by the f-number in the lens name.

Compatible Non-CPU lenses

When using the following non-CPU lenses and accessories, rotate the camera mode dial to A and M and set aperture using the lens aperture ring. In other modes, the shutter-release is disabled. Non-CPU lens data can be used to enable many of the features available with CPU lenses, including color matrix metering; if no data are provided, center-weighted metering will be used in place of color matrix metering, while if the maximum aperture is not provided, the camera aperture display will show the number of stops from maximum aperture and the actual aperture value must be read off the lens aperture ring.
