 Post subject: D7000 help.
PostPosted: Tue Jul 10, 2012 1:54 pm 
I have recently purchased a Nikon D7000. I have a AF-S 16-85 Nikon lens which i use on the body.

I would like to know the following :-

With my lens on D7000 and set on Manual focus, do I have to
switch AF/M button on the camera body also to M?

and

Wth my lens on M/A mode, do I have to keep my AF/M switch on camera body at AF.

At the minute i have the lens set on M/A and the body set on AF. Is this right?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi.
I leave both camera and lens on M/A, but if I want to manual focus, just flick the lens switch to M. (in other words, you don't have to have them both set to the same)

A good all round lens that 16-85 btw.

Thank you for the reply.

I am really pleased with both lens and camera. Considering getting the Nikon Macro 105mm lens next.

The "M" switch on the camera is so you can manually focus lenses like the 50 1.8D, which don't have a switch to turn off the camera connection. This is fairly rare.

Any lens with an AF-M switch can be controlled from the lens.

Yes - I like that camera-lens combination a lot.
