How can I tell a N-Ai from an AI lens?



Would this lens be N-AI or AI? Anyway to tell from this pic?? Wondering if it would take to a D80?

Re: How can I tell a N-Ai from an AI lens?

Sorry,I cannot tell you, but have the same lens,maybe a little earlier as Number is 712891.....I have had it on the D300 and it works ,but you have to use AP and change aperture with the ap ring on the lens. good luck m8.

Will not autofocus of course so set to manual focus on the body of the D80, and will be ok in bright conditions.
You will still get focus conformation in the viewfinder though

Yup towershot's right, wont autofocus, but almost all Nikkor lenses from the past 30 years or so will work on any body...
