D90 and Nikkor 200-500 compatiable?

  1. I was going to order the Nikkor zoom 200-500mm 5.6 from Adroma, but they say that the lens and the D90 are not compatible. The camera does not communicate with the lens aperture. If the aperture is fixed at 5.6 do they really need to commuicate?
     
  2. Yes it's an E lens and is not compatible with the D90.

    It is "not compatible" in the sense that the D90 cannot control the aperture in E lenses, and the 200-500 AF-S VR will be stuck at f5.6 when mounted on a D90. Otherwise, that combo works fine in any other way. At least I mostly use the 200-500 wide open anyway, using that combo shouldn't be a major issue for most.
