I was given a Nikon N8008 this past summer and I'm planning to use it for fall colors soon. I've read that theses old camera are compatible with Nikon's G lenses as long as I shoot in Program or Shutter Priority modes. I mounted my Nikon AF-s 50 f/1.4 G lens to the camera and it does not auto focus, I get left and right arrows and sometimes an X. When I try to focus manually the image doesn't come in to focus. I tried turning the focus ring in the direction of the arrows and no luck. The focus confirmation light doesn't turn on when focusing. Luckily the N8008 came with a AF-D 35-105 f/3.5-4.5 which works. I'd forgotten how LOUD the camera is when focusing which I know is normal because I started my Nikon journey with a N6006. What am I doing wrong? My old F5 doesn't care what type of AF lens is attached to the camera, it focuses just fine. I have to remember to use the aperture ring when shooting in M or S modes. I just checked my Tokina 16-28 f/2.8 and 35 f/1.8 DX lens and got the same results as my 50 lens. Maybe it hates modern lenses.
