    i have been offered a nikon d100 at a good price, but will all recent nikon af lenses work with it? i seem to remember that they dont and you have to use lenses that are made for nikon digital cameras, if that is the case would i be better getting a canon, as all the older (read cheaper) eos lenses should work.


    thanks

    As far as I know (I know 2 D100 owners) you can use any Nikon AF lens.

    Well I own a 10D and have played a few times with a D100. To be honest there is very little difference between the cameras in most respects. Image quality on both is superb and features wise both cameras have pluses and minuses so it pretty much evens out.


    When I was choosing my camera I tested the D100 and as much as I liked the camera it just didnt feel right in my hands where as the 10D just felt perfect.

    I believe I now why this is. The D100's body is smaller than the 10D and I have quite large hands. Whenever I have held the D100 it always feels like its slipping out of my hands where as the 10D fits my hand like a glove as it were. Equally yesterday I picked up a 300D and didnt like it because it is the same size as the D100

    My point is that you should try out both cameras before buying. Both cameras are excellent and will serve you perfectly for years but you have to find the camera that feels right to you in terms of build, layout of controls, understanding the menu's etc etc.
