Hi everyone..

I previously had a film SLR F65 which has a "NIKON AF NIKKOR 28-80 1:3.3 - 5.6 G" lens. I'm planning to buy a D7000 now. Was just thinking whether that lens would be compatible with the D7000, or rather if it is, then would this be a good idea?

I would really appreciate the opinions/ advices/ feedback of the experts.

Thank you so much!

Welcome to the forum!

Yes. The "G" lenses will work on the D7000. I am no expert, but a G lens is a G lens. The zoom range of that lens may not satisfy you at the low end, due to the "crop factor," but the lens is usable. If you find yourself having to step away from your subject more than is convenient, in order to compose the image, you may want a wider-angle lens.

Hello AnupamDas, and welcome to the friendly Camera Labs forum!
To enjoy your stay here please have a look at the house-rules!

Yes the G lens will work fine with a D7000. But the high resolution of this body will show any flaws in the optical quality of the zoom pretty clearly.

Hello, there. not repeating what others have correctly stated, would like to remind you that although the 28-80mm f/3.3-5.6G offers great image quality on the D7000 (specially for it's low price, since it's an old plastic kit lens), this lens might not be able to deliver the full capabilities of the fantastic D7000 sensor. Personally I use a 16-85 VR as an "all-in-one" lens, but have found the best optical results while shooting the D7000 with the prime 35mm F/1.8.
