  1. IX-NIKKOR lenses cannot be used.
  2. Vibration Reduction (VR) supported with VR lenses.
  3. Spot metering meters selected focus point.
  4. The camera’s exposure metering and flash control systems do not work properly when shifting and/or tilting the lens, or when an aperture other than the maximum aperture is used.
  5. Cannot be used with shifting or tilting.
  6. Manual exposure mode only.
  7. Can be used with AF-S and AF-I lenses only.
  8. With maximum effective aperture of f/5.6 or faster.
  9. When focusing at minimum focus distance with AF 80–200mm f/2.8, AF 35–70mm f/2.8, AF 28–85mm f/3.5–4.5 <New>, or AF 28–85mm f/3.5–4.5 lens at maximum zoom, in-focus indicator may be displayed when image on matte screen in viewfinder is not in focus. Adjust focus manually until image in viewfinder is in focus.
  10. With maximum aperture of f/5.6 or faster.
  11. Some lenses cannot be used.
  12. Range of rotation for AI 80–200mm f/2.8 ED tripod mount is limited by camera body. Filters cannot be exchanged while AI 200–400mm f/4 ED is mounted on camera.
  13. If maximum aperture is specified using Non-CPU lens data, aperture value will be displayed in viewfinder and top control panel.
  14. Can be used only if lens focal length and maximum aperture are specified using Non-CPU lens data. Use spot or center-weighted metering if desired results are not achieved.
  15. For improved precision, specify lens focal length and maximum aperture using Non-CPU lens data.
  16. Can be used in manual exposure modes at shutter speeds slower than flash sync speed by one step or more.
  17. Exposure determined by presetting lens aperture. In aperture-priority auto exposure mode, preset aperture using lens aperture ring before performing AE lock and shifting lens. In manual exposure mode, preset aperture using lens aperture ring and determine exposure before shifting lens.
  18. Exposure compensation required when used with AI 28–85mm f/3.5–4.5, AI 35–105mm f/3.5–4.5, AI 35–135mm f/3.5–4.5, or AF-S 80–200mm f/2.8D.
  19. Requires Auto Extension Ring PK-12 or PK-13. Bellows Spacer PB-6D may be required depending on camera orientation.
  20. Use preset aperture. In aperture-priority auto exposure mode, set aperture using focusing attachment before determining exposure and taking photograph.
  21. Reprocopy Outfit PF-4 requires Camera Holder PA-4.
